Mark Hayward

Mark Hayward is a photographer based in the beautiful village of Stanton Drew in the heart of the Chew Valley. He is known for his ethereal, haunting images of the British landscape. “I grew up just outside the New Forest and have a lifelong fascination with trees and forests.I try to capture the ‘genius loci’ or spirit of the place in my shots. Atmosphere is everything, my idol is Ansel Adams but I’m influenced by everyone from Edward Steichen to H.R Giger”
