Photography by Mark Tomlinson

Welcome to my website. I take photographs using various digital and analogue technologies. In the darkroom I mainly print using lith techniques which produce unique images. Digitally I use various equipment such as Sony full frame cameras. For digital processing I use Capture One, Lightroom, Silver Efex Pro and On1, and print with an Epson 3880 and Canon Pro 1000 printer.

The majority of my work is in black and white. Street photography has been a serious interest and I also teach postgraduate students Visual Research Methods as part of the Master’s degree programmes in Sociology at the University of Sheffield in England. 

I am currently designing an undergraduate course on the sociology of photography from a theoretical and practical point of view.
