Mark Dölling

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 finished shooting COPYCAT KILLERS (season 3) in 2018. Back in Berlin he currently prepares the course: ‘Transcultural Film Workshop’ at FU Berlin.

Additionally, in the past 4 years, Mark has shot documentaries in the United States for Smithsonian, Red Bull and National Geographic. He holds a valid working visa for the USA until DATE.

Furthermore Mark is part of the external teaching staff at Freie Universität Berlin where he lectures multiple courses including the Documentary Camera Work at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology.
