Crystal Palace Photographer – Mark Blundell

I live in Crystal Palace and have been taking photographs seriously for the last five or six years.

My interest in photography has stemmed from receiving a Zenit 122 from my Grandfather after he passed away. The camera sadly languished under my bed for several years until a trip to Pyestock with the point and click, this re-ignited a latent interest and  prompted the purchase of a few rolls of 35mm and a trip  to East Sussex for a wander around a well known asylum. Soon after an investment in a digital camera was made and the rest is history.

I shoot with a Canon 5D mk3 and various professional lenses as well as using both regular flash and studio lighting.IMG_0270

I shoot mostly MMA (mixed martial arts). I am the Head Photographer for MMAPlus, we attend events up and down the country as well as abroad and have shot UFC as well as Cage Warriors  and I was recently selected to be the official photographer for BAMMA, Fury, Stand and Bang and Warrior Fight Series

I’m active on social media sites and can be contacted on any of these  sites : Twitter / Flickr / Tumblr/Google +

I am happy to discuss rates for most projects and am particularly interested in shooting portraits, gym, events, residential or retail projects producing regular images as well as 360 panoramas.

I have recently completed work for TATE ENTERTAINING

Hello Mark,
I was looking through your images and they would be perfect for my dissertation, as my theme is abandonment, I was going to do a section on the images you have taken as they are really something special. But i was wondering if i could copy a few just on to my word document for my A level dissertation so i can discuss what you have spoken about concerning how unnerving it is when you find something so personal to some one like the asylum names!
I hope to hear from you soon,
Kind Regards
Harriet Hunter

Hi mark. I’m currently at sixth form studying photography at AS level. My theme for my project is derelict buildings and urban decay. I have been using Your photography work as an example and for further research for my project and I have been analysing your work. I admire your photo’s taken in the hospital that show how it’s been decaying over time etc. I was just wondering if the hospital is open for me to possibly take photo’s for my A level grades, as this is exactly what I had in mind!

HI –

Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately the two hospitals that I used to go to are now either flattened or in the process of being flattened which is a real shame, but that’s progress. There are a few around the country though, you just have to find them.

Hi Mark,
I’m currently doing AS level photography at college, my coursework title is ‘Exploration and Discovery’. For this I chose to explore abandoned building. I came across your work which I think is AMAZING! I was wondering if it would be possible to have a few images to include in my piece about your work that aren’t as heavily watermarked?
Thanks Aimee.
