I have been an artist all my life and after I finished up school I took a fine art portfolio course. From this I discovered photography and my passion for it grew from there. I attended IADT Dun Laoghaire studying a BA in Photography. I worked with Stephanie Parisot in her Rathgar studio for a few years and moved on to create my own business, Mark Hill Photography.
I live in an apartment in Dublin with my partner Kate and our two cats Nym and Pippin. I really enjoy both contrasting lifestyles of relaxing at home, playing with the cats, cooking, listening to some jazz records or playing sport and socializing.
I take my work extremely seriously but I also feel it is vitally important to enjoy what you do as well. So whenever I am photographing I always make sure that the highest quality of work is achieved but that we all enjoy the process together.
Photography is a huge part of my life. I am really lucky that my job is something that I love to pour myself into. The fact that I get to capture some of the most precious moments of people’s lives is a great privilege and something I never take for granted.
