Born and bred in Liverpool, Mark Stephenson bought his first camera in 2008 ahead of a trip to Canada. Fast forward six years, a move to Jersey and one particularly challenging 365 project during which he took a photo every day for a year, and the self-taught photographer has carved himself a niche in fashion and portrait work. His versatile style means he is just as at home in a studio as he is shooting on the beach, and he likes experimenting with new and unusual locations. Mark, who by day is a software engineer, describes his style as eclectic and one that is developing all the time. The 28-year-old’s dream assignment would be a cover shoot somewhere exotic for GQ magazine.

Guernsey based Simon Boucher-Harris LWSPP, Renegade Photography, has been a full time professional photographer since 2012. “I first picked up a ‘proper’ camera a couple of years ago and have been on one hell of a journey ever since! After spending 20 years working in finance, then you pick up a camera and find the thing you should have been doing all along… but I’m one of those lucky people that have turned a passion into a career, and I love what I do. His primary focus is on the commercial, fashion, magazine and advertising areas of his business; but he also loves the diversity photography brings and is always interested in taking on commissions in all genres. Aside from an ever growing list of impressive private and commercial commissions Simon is also the cover and main editorial photographer for gallery Guernsey, so we wanted introduce you to him in Jersey.
