American photographer Mark Burns was born December 1958 in Houston, Texas. Since early childhood he has displayed a strong affinity toward photography. Known for having a refined ’photographer’s eye’, Burns creates compelling images that are a unique mastery of composition, lighting, and photographic technique. While very much at home in the studio, Burns especially loves the unique challenges and demands of landscape photography. His work is unparalleled, and he has been termed one of the greatest photographers of his time.
