About Mark Hilliard
A Landscape, Wildlife & Fine Art Photographer for 54 years, Mark has extensively traveled the world chasing his photographic visions. Mark runs Mark Hilliard, ATELIER, his private digital and darkroom studio in Pawleys Island, SC where he practices fine art nature, landscape and Wabi/Sabi photography. Mark specializes in Large & Medium Format film photography and creates alternative prints with his Van Dyke Brown and Platinum/Palladium printing. This is a process from the 1840's where the emulsion is made and coated directly onto the print paper, dried, exposed in a UV light box and developed in several chemical baths.
While Mark shoots high resolution digital, but he loves working in Medium & Large format film as well. He has three 4x5 cameras and several medium format systems. He processes and wet mount scans all of the negatives, both B&W and color. He tends to shoot about 80% in film. Mark is best known for his high-speed hummingbird photography, ultra long exposures, lightning, B&W and Color film and medium format digital landscapes. Mark lives in USA.
