Mark Hazeldine is an architectural photographer, digital marketing expert and social media influencer based in Surrey (near London), UK. Happily married with two lovely children, he is a specialist in architectural, interiors and hospitality photography.
“I am passionate about creating, curating and publishing strong images with bold lines, shapes and colour that convey the beauty of architecture, urban spaces and interior designs in a way that is faithful to real life and yet also has an artistic quality. I am also passionate about business and marketing. I enjoy promoting others as much as myself and love helping businesses get the most of out their marketing through great imagery and visuals.”
Mark has been practising art and design from the age of 3. Throughout his early years, he constantly drew images of buildings and transportation. He studied art and product design at university, and went on to gain 5 years' experience in digital marketing in the B2B corporate world. Outside of formal education and work, Mark developed a passion for photography from the age of 15 (inspired by playing with his father's Canon film SLR). As before with drawing, he continued finding himself interested in the subject of buildings and the environment around him. Through a series of family holidays and later, trips to Europe with his wife, Mark developed a passion for travel, admiring the amazing architecture of great cities such as Paris, Florence and Rome and the varied experiences staying in numerous interesting hotels.
Given Mark's background, it didn't take long to get a light bulb moment. Mark realised he could combine four of his biggest passions; design, marketing, photography and travel, when he discovered the world of professional architectural and interiors photography and he hasn't looked back since. Mark’s design education and marketing experience ensures he understands both your artistic vision and commercial needs and the psychological triggers that cause your customers and clients to be drawn to the images that he creates. His creative eye, technical skills and painstaking attention to detail produce striking, high quality images that will get you and your properties and designs noticed.
Social Media expert and influencer
As a result of his experience in marketing and love of photography, Mark started experimenting with Instagram in 2014. After running his own personal feed for a while he started the @WundrousLondon account as a way of connecting with other photographers and sharing his love of the cityscapes and architecture of his home city with the world. It quickly grew, to it's current size of over 47,000 followers and now Mark has launched another account called @WundrousPlaces, focused on amazing travel destinations from around the world, partnering with selected brands for sponsored campaigns.
Mark recently had a photo project about a Japanese inspired house featured in Self Build & Design magazine, along with a cover image (October 2017 issue).
In addition to assignment work and social media management, Mark also creates fine art architecture, cityscape and street photography as a way to express his love of lines and form in architecture. To see some of his fine art work, visit his personal Instagram feed or SaatchiArt portfolio, where you can buy prints.
