Commercial Photographer

Mark Chivers is a London-based commercial photographer with over 25 years’ experience in the UK photographic industry. His client base ranges from small independent companies to large corporates and charitable foundations. As a commercial photographer, he specialises in working with companies to identify their visual needs and to capture and produce high quality images, with minimal disruption to their operations.

He also runs a successful wedding photography business and shoots in a documentary style that is particularly personal, honest and thought-provoking.

In 2015 Mark was long listed for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize in 2015 and was exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery, London.

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
—Elliott Erwitt
