was born and raised in a small town near Bremen, Northern Germany. In 1998 he moved to Bremen and started to work as an AC, focus puller and audio guy for TV stations, eg. Radio Bremen (ARD). He started to work as a cameraman for those networks in 2000. After a while Mark decided that ‚learning-by-doing‘ wasn’t enough for him and that he wanted to explore the whole width of working with a camera. Therefore he relocated to Berlin where he started studying cinemato-graphy at Beuth University of Applied Sciences and graduated with a diploma as Director of Photography. He has since worked as a freelancer on various productions both domestically and abroad. In 2015 he devised the visual concept for a new crime show called COPYCAT KILLERS, he then shot the first season (13 episodes) in Washington DC, aired on Reelz (national) and Discovery Channel/ID (international). 2017, he returned to shoot the entire 2nd season (20 episodes).
Mark just finished shooting COPYCAT KILLERS, season 3. He recently returned to Berlin where he currently teaches the course: ‘Documentary Camera Work’ at FU Berlin.
Furthermore Mark is part of the external teaching staff at Freie Universität Berlin where he lectures multiple courses including the Transcultural Film Workshop at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology.
