About Me - Markhortonphotography
Playing with different apertures....

I am a self-taught, award-winning nature and wildlife photographer based in amongst the heathland on the Surrey/Hampshire borders. I spent most of my childhood summer holidays bug-hunting, and it was inevitable that after taking an interest in photography, it would be this that influenced where I pointed my camera. My passion is macro photography, and bringing the fascinating, and often unseen world of invertebrates, fungi and more to a wider audience.

I've been fortunate enough to have had my macro images exhibited across the country, featured in books and magazines and featured several times on the BBC Springwatch and Winterwatch television and web programming. My shots feature in the most recent BWPA and OPOTY competition books, receiving a Highly Commended for the former. I've written a 6-page macro tuition article for, and was featured as the cover image in, the respected 'Outdoor Photography' magazine.
