Mark Fitz

A raconteur of the deep, Mark captures the marine world in all its glory and hilarity. As our Great Barrier Reef Guru, Mark combines his knowledge of Queensland's underwater treasures with an infectious zeal that's hard to ignore. He's got many awards under his belt, including snagging the title for the 2020 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards with his iconic shot of Terry the Turtle flipping the bird.

You know, it takes more than luck to get a turtle to flip the bird at just the right moment. Mark's got this incredible knack for capturing marine life in ways you've never seen before. He isn't just snapping pictures; he's telling stories, revealing the personalities of everything from cheeky turtles to majestic whales. It's that eye for detail that's landed him countless gigs with tourism boards and brands.

Mark doesn't just set up a tripod and start clicking away. He dives deep—literally. Before a shoot, he spends time getting to know the ins and outs of the marine environment. It’s like he’s part of their world, which is probably why even the fish seem to pose for him. And don't even get us started on his technical expertise; the man knows how to make lighting and camera angles work, even 30 meters under!

Travelling with Mark isn't a one-size-fits-all experience. He actually cares about your interests and abilities. Whether you're a photography newbie trying to get that perfect turtle shot or a seasoned pro, Mark's there to guide you. You can expect custom-tailored advice and a whole lot of fun—because, with Mark, learning is an adventure in itself.

"You can do all the planning in the world for a shoot but sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas and you just need to be able to laugh about it."
