Mark Alger specialises in Outdoor (architecture/man-made subjects) and Landscape Photography, although he has also undertaken commissions for product work, most recently for food imagery.
Mark looks to create images that will encourage an emotional response, trying to evoke a feeling of time and place and continuing to do so with a real sense of personal exploration. Whilst not averse to portraying the classic vista or broader view he will often seek the intimate aspects of a composition, attempting to ask questions through his image making. The majority of his images are made in colour although monochrome still has an appeal dependent on the subject and feel. Working predominately within Oxfordshire and the Isle of Wight, he also makes frequent trips to other regions of the UK, including South West Wales, The North of England and the far North of Scotland.
Mark sells fine art prints via his website; additionally he has both framed and mounted prints available for viewing and purchase at The Lounge Cafe, 44 Bath Street, Abingdon. All prints are produced using archival materials (Ultrachrome inks); larger images are produced as giclee fine art prints. Mark has recently started offering one-to-one tuition on digital photography, focusing on creative composition, using a DSLR and software processing.
