Biography


Biography
 
Born in 1959, Mark has been a lifelong resident of upstate New York. His lifelong passion for photography began at the age of 18 when he purchased his first 35mm film camera. Soon after, he began processing his own prints in his darkroom. Although Mark still uses film occasionally, he primarily uses digital and has instructed himself in the use and potential of the digital darkroom.
 
Mark worked as a materials specialist for a research laboratory where he created scientific images of his work, using a scanning electron beam microscope. His images have appeared in several scientific publications.
 
Pohl's photographic work focuses on the creative process itself. He enjoys getting out with his equipment and exploring new places and experimenting with new ideas. His latest work uses a special technique to hand paint black and white onto his color images. Pohl has won several awards for his work.
