Mark "Machine" Graham
Mark was born and raised in Southern California and now resides, with his wife and two "brilliant" children, in South Florida. He has toured a lot of the world (in a non-photography capacity) with the likes of Carole King, Mötley Crüe, Blondie, Hanson, Meat Loaf, Dave Koz, Shark Island and many, many others. His pursuits in photography had been dormant for years , but are now coming to the surface for the last few years. "My only regret is not getting deeper into it, sooner".
Being a self-proclaimed petrol head sometimes draws him to the subjects of the four wheeled and two wheeled variety. However, that's not where his inspirations stop. "I don't know if I have a 'style' [yet]. Sneaking up on a kangaroo intrigues me as much as a custom car (hell, a "regular" car) or motorcycle. The ever changing skyline and rich cloud-scapes that South Florida provides is also a fortuitous source of creativity. Introducing drones to this process has been fantastic. I just like to shoot and express whatever moves me."
Since 2017, Machine has posted a photo every Wednesday (#wednesdayphotoshare) … “self assignments are a good thing”
