Mark, Southeast Asia Specialist
After five years working at IBM, Mark headed off to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia. Destined for a year-long adventure in Australia, Mark cut it short after three months realizing that Southeast Asia had everything he was looking for. He returned to Asia and relocated to southern Thailand for 12 months, where he taught English. On his return to the UK, Mark's love of reportage photography turned to photo-journalism and then coupled with his passion for Southeast Asia and first-hand knowledge of the region, Audley became the logical way forward. Since joining Audley, Mark has traveled back to Thailand, Burma, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and more recently Papua New Guinea, topping up his specialist knowledge of the region and giving him the chance to enable others to see the culture, architecture and diversity that captivates him.
I'll never forget when…
I was fortunate enough to be in the ancient city of Bagan with Audley the night before my birthday. I had been sat on the terrace of my bungalow overlooking a lily pond and the many surrounding Buddhist temples when the sun slowly sank behind the mountain range in front of me, casting a beautiful reflection of the silhouetted temples through the warm orange sky.
