Mark Watson is a Lyttelton-based photographer specialising in landscape, adventure, wilderness and travel photography.

As an active climber, tramper and cyclist with over 30 years experience in the New Zealand outdoors (and many places overseas) Mark has the ability to photograph a wide range of outdoor scenarios and the skills to access and shoot in remote locations.

Through his landscape and adventure photography he conveys the diverse and wild beauty of New Zealand’s recreation and conservation areas in an attempt to share with the audience the valuable natural heritage of the New Zealand landscape. He is compelled to capture images that encourage people to think about our environment and to work hard to protect what little unspoiled wilderness we have left.
