Profile – Action Sports Photographer, Mark Watson

Red Bull Glory Glide 2009 (Nikon D3s)

My name is Mark Watson and I am an adventure photographer and Nikon Ambassador. My first real photography gig was as an assistant in a David Attenborough wildlife documentary, living in a croc infested swamp for weeks on end. My first real memorable adventure project was a two-week cliff-diving assignment in the Kimberly region of Western Australia.

I have been photographing crazy-arse people doing stupid things in extreme locations for more than a decade now and I am fortunate to be an Ambassador for both Nikon and Lowepro these days – two big names in the photography world.

Here are a couple photos from the archives.
