Hello, I’m Mark Chamberlain –  a travel & landscape photographer and writer based in Thailand and Western Australia.

My photographic objectives are to tell stories through photo essays about people and places in Southeast Asia. In contrast, my fine art and classic landscape photographs showcase extraordinary landscapes from across the globe while maintaining a strong sense of place.

Asian Explorer Past

Previously, I lived a nomadic life working as an exploration geologist. In the early 1990s, I was helicopter-dropped into Indonesia’s rugged mountains and rainforests on my first company assignments. Jobs in southern Myanmar followed – at the time, an area that was very much off-limits to travellers and tourists. I never returned home to my native England after these initial culture shocks and experiences. A fantastic Far East life adventure had begun.

Inspired by my spectacular surroundings and the diverse people and cultures in this dynamic global region, my travel photography interests grew.


I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society and past Editor of CameraTalk magazine, the official online magazine of the Photographic Society of New Zealand.
