01. About Mark Kennedy
My fondest childhood memories are of living and travelling with my parents through Europe and South Africa. Images of castles and knights, bustling cities and wide open beaches, safari parks and wild animals made up my earliest years, and I’ve been taking photographs since I was about 9 years old.
After completing my Computer Engineering degree, I spent the next 8 years working overseas, in the Netherlands. With 9 weeks of vacation each year and a passion for travel, I purchased a better camera and started a more serious study of photography.
In 2007, I left behind my career in technology and moved into work as a professional photographer. My focus in photography has shifted toward a more personal, intimate perspective – one that reflects the emotional impact of a subject on the viewer.
My goal as a photographer is to create images that are visually and emotionally compelling, that will leave a lasting impression, and will serve you or your business.
Something that I wish to be clear about is this: I do not take ‘snapshots’ of people or of architecture. Cellphones are great for capturing all of those fun, spontaneous moments, but for a picture to stand out and truly be memorable, whether it’s a personal portrait or an interior/exterior shot of a multi-million dollar home, attention to detail is required to create the best possible image.
