About the Photographer
Mark Roberts was born and raised near Syracuse, NY. He is a retired Sergeant from the Town of DeWitt Police Department where he used his interest in photography to capture crime scenes as a crime scene specialist. He continues to do the Police Departments portraits. From his early teens his passion has always been landscape and wildlife photography. He enjoys touring the sights of the U.S.A. on his motorcycle and has ridden in 48 of the 50 US States. He loves to visit and photograph areas of our National Parks that are off the beaten path. Other interests include aviation, competitive shooting, hiking, repelling, scuba diving, and woodwork.
Mark fell in love with the Appalachia area on his first trip to Johnson City in 2009. He moved to the area in 2014, and currently lives in Piney Flats, TN. He is just starting to explore the wonders of Appalachia and the surrounding areas. His hopes are to capture this area in all it's splendor and to share it with you. He likes to try new or different techniques, like light painting and high dynamic range photography. His photography isn't limited to just land as he loves underwater photography and aerial photography as well.
