Elements Team

 

ELEMENTS PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHER & FOUNDER

Mark wears two hats. The first one, usually a trucker cap, sees him working as a 1st Assistant Director in Film & TV. The second, actually just another trucker cap probably in a different colour, is as co-founder and photographer with local community website, elements margaret river.

After 15 years on the East Coast working on wide-ranging projects from U.S. movies (Ghostrider, don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark) to Aussie TV (Redfern Now, Killing Time), Mark returned to WA 4 years ago with his young family to strike a better balance in life.

Returning to his first creative passion in Photography, Mark struck up a partnership with photographer Russell Ord and established Elements Margaret River.

Elements aims to connect with local community through photography stories – music, surf, art and people.               A digital reflection of down south life.

ELEMENTS PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHER & FOUNDER

THE ELEMENTS JOURNAL PHOTO EDITOR

From the home town of Margaret River, Western Australia, Russell Ord, steers clear of the crowds. Instead, he will venture out into secret spots on the rugged WA coast or locations more than 15km offshore in the Southern Ocean, where he is at peace swimming into some of the heaviest waves imaginable.

His shots provide a unique view into the depth of the impact zone.

“The last few years I’ve kind of gone away from capturing every single moment, and now I’m just trying to get that one moment that’s challenging to myself.

“So that means swimming right into the thick of things and seeing what we can do.! Your whole life revolves around that; what you eat, how you breathe and how you train.” – Russell Ord.

THE ELEMENTS JOURNAL ART DIRECTOR

I am Paris, a creative  and young photographer and lover of the outdoors. I was brought up in the beautiful town of Margaret River surrounded by the ocean, bush and a multitude of animals. I’ve been away studying my Advanced Diploma of Photography for three years but am now based back home in the South West. I primarily photograph people, I love engaging with them and striving to capture the essence of who they are.

I seek out peaceful compositions in my images and strive to not just create beautiful images, but images that give the viewer a feeling of harmony. I think it is very important to draw the viewers into the heart of my portraits, rather than just admiring the aesthetics.
