Where your passions will take you
Introducing Mark Hemmings
Almost every younger brother looks up to his older sibling, and there is no exception in the Hemmings family. Greg’s older brother, Mark, shaped his likes, choices, and life. They shared similar interests and even found themselves in similar industries coincidentally.
Mark is an internationally renowned photographer that specializes in travel, fashion, commercial, and architectural photography. In 1997, Mark was a student at the University of New Brunswick-Saint John, when he was hired by the university to travel to Japan to recruit English-as-a-second-language students. Mark turned out to be a horrible recruiter, but left the country with a new passion. Mark had started taking pictures, really, for the first time in his life and fell in love with the art. Photography is a passion that he falls in love with more each and every day.
Mark now works around the world at his craft and was also able to fuse two more of his passions into his career, which are travel and teaching. Mark holds photography workshops around the world for those of any skill level and piece of equipment. His workshops span the gamut; his students travel to such places as Mexico, Japan, Eastern Europe, and South Korea.
