From tracking and naming a female Humpback Whale in Moorea, near Tahiti; in a hot air balloon adventure over the Napa wine valley, to visiting a native community two hours by canoe into the depths of the Ecuadorian Amazon, Mark has brought many adventure travel stories and images to readers across the country. A freelance contributor to TraveLife magazine, Mark also is a regular contributor of travel features to ExtraOrdinary Health Canada Magazine; and has been published in the Toronto Star, the National Post, and Air Canada’s EnRoute magazine, and in Photographer’s Forum: Best of Photography. Mark studied photography at Toronto’s Ryerson University. Mark’s been fortunate enough to travel to places many people dream of in addition to those mentioned previously; The Galapagos islands, Bora Bora, Taha’a, Raiatea, Costa Rica, extensively through the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Florida, California, Alberta, B.C., England and Scotland. Favorite spot? That’s a hard one – there have been so many but at the end of the day it’s no contest: Bucket list Bora Bora.
