Let me start by saying that in the 20 years I’ve carried a camera, the shots I got on Mark’s tour of the Pasar Ubud are some of my favorites. Spending time with Mark as he took us through the crowded walkways and nuanced work lives of the market’s many merchants was a rare treat. While the tour is a reasonable description, this felt more like a master class with Mark sharing his valuable insights, directing us through his process and sharing his deep empathy for the people whose lives we were capturing. I’m a better photographer for the experience and my daughter, Aurora, as a new photographer, feels she now has a better eye and is ready to hang up her iPhone for a 35mm film camera! 🙂
I’d highly recommend Mark, his work and this tour to anyone with a love of photography and a calling to capture life as it happens.

I’m totally blulshing after reading your deep and hearfelt words, Simon & Aurora! The honour was all mine. I feel blessed that we had the opportunity to share our love of photography. I look forward to seeing your photos from the tour! 🙏🏽
