MARK CLINTON JOHNSON
Welcome to my online showroom and shop. This is a place for me to show off the best of my photography work and for you to enjoy looking through or to buy. Maybe like me, North Devon is your favourite place in the world, or you just like beautiful photographs showing our landscape at its best.
Each picture is a story in itself, and I am sure you as the viewer have many stories about each of these locations, places and views. If you do, I'd love to hear about them.
If you would like to contact me about any of my pictures, bespoke productions, or any other photography project, you can contact me.
Woolacombe and Mortehoe
A collection of photographs from around Woolacombe and Mortehoe, this is the location where I go to take pictures the majority of the time and the area I know best. I first started exploring around this area around 2012 and have pretty much covered every path and know every view. This helps a lot when deciding where to go to take my next picture.
One of the amazing wonders about this location is that the sun sets to the left of Lundy Island when viewed from Woolacombe during the Autumn/Winter months (after the Autumn equinox) and to the right during the Spring/Summer months (after the Spring equinox). This mean I can capture very contrasting views depending on the season.
This collection is a set of minimalist photos that show a clear subject that can take the mind away to somewhere else. I have a particular love for this type of photo, especially if it combines the beauty of colours and patterns in nature. Many of these pictures could have been taken anywhere as there is no clear landmark - they are all however, in North Devon.
After I moved to North Devon in 2018, I started to explore more. This is a collection of photos from all around this region including Exmoor, Lynton, Lynmouth and the Heddon Valley, also Ilfracombe and Saunton Sands.
Often these photographs are taken whilst on walks when I see stand out weather or views develop in front of me as I wander along with my dog. Other times, I'll head out at a specific time with a certain picture in mind, but that rarely goes to plan!
