Mark Hicken Photography - images of the Natural World

Mark grew up in Nottinghamshire close to Attenborough nature reserve where he spent many hours indulging his lifelong interest in nature in general and birds in particular. After gaining degrees at Warwick and Leeds universities he moved north of the border to north-east Scotland with his partner Ros.

Following some volunteer video work for RSPB, Mark switched to digital still photography and started out on the precarious path of a freelance photographer in an attempt to capture the regal beauty of the Scottish highlands and it's fascinating wildlife.

The philosophy of his work is to try and communicate a love of the natural world as an inspiration to further protect and develop Britain's fragile and dwindling natural habitats.

Mark's images are represented in the following stock libraries:
