Mark Hemmings is an internationally recognized travel and commercial photographer, and his photography portfolio can be viewed at www.markhemmings.com. Mark began his career in the late 1990′s when working on feature films as a stills and location photographer.

His work broadened to include international travel photography jobs which had him photographing in Asia and Eastern Europe. In 2000 Mark moved to Japan for a year to learn advertising photography, and that year proved pivotal in shaping his lighting style and how he approaches photography within the context of advertising.

In 2005 he started his side career as a photography workshop instructor, teaching people how to create better photographs in such diverse places as Mexico, England, Japan, Korea, Hungary, and Romania/Transylvania. Mark’s favorite location to photograph is Japan, and he hopes that you will join him on this creative adventure discovering one of the most mysterious and artistic cultures in the world.


As a photography tour/workshop instructor, Mark’s desire is to impart technical and aesthetic knowledge to his participants, as well as offering a fun and dynamic international cultural experience. This Japan photography tour & workshop began in 2005 and since then has grown in popularity and in-country destinations. Mark and his support team would love to see you in Japan in 2020!
