After graduating from California State University, Los Angeles with a Master of Arts Degree in Pictorial/Documentary History, Mark Edward Harris started his professional photography career doing the stills for the Merv Griffin Show and various television and movie companies. When the show ended in 1986 he set off on a four-month trek across the Pacific and throughout Southeast Asia, China and Japan. The images created on that trip brought attention to his travel and documentary photography. Assignments have since taken him to more than 100 countries on six continents. His editorial work has appeared in publications such as Vanity Fair, Time, and The New York Times to Conde Nast Traveler, National Geographic Traveler and The London Sunday Times Travel Magazine as well as all the major photography and in-flight magazines. He is the recipient of numerous accolades including CLIO, ACE, Aurora Gold, and IPA awards. His books include Faces of the Twentieth Century: Master Photographers and Their Work, The Way of the Japanese Bath, Wanderlust, North Korea, South Korea, Inside Iran and his latest The Travel Photo Essay: Describing A Journey Through Images.
“The ability to work with Stella lights under any weather conditions combined with their incredible portability, power, and the capability to see what you’re going to get in real time make them the ideal lights for both indoor and outdoor location shoots.”
