Photographer of the Week Mark Fuller is no stranger to the DPG community. Having served on several monthly contest judging panels, and contributed extremely informative technique guides, Mark’s work and voice have definitely done their part to help shape the current style of underwater photography.
But although we are used to seeing Mark as an author and contributor, if you actually look at his work in a portfolio medium, you will see a man who practices what he preaches. Each image tells a simple story about a mundane activity in the life of an animal. Because each animal is so unique and foreign to our daily visual psyche, even something so simple as a blenny yawning becomes a tour de force capture.
It also helps that Mark has a keen sense of technical aptitude that he combines with creative ways of seeing, so that we aren’t merely looking at an activity. His artistic tendency married with something we aren’t use to seeing creates a most privileged experience for viewers, attracting more people to take a second look at some of the underwater world’s most curious creatures.
