Mark Hill was born and raised in Oklahoma City. While still a fan of the football team, he left the University of Oklahoma after exhausting the school’s photography classes within three semesters. Mark high-tailed it to the largest private art school in the country, the School of Visual Arts, in New York City.

After graduating with a BFA in photography, Mark stayed in New York for the next 8 years, operating his own Manhattan studio and shooting mostly food photography for cookbooks and publications like The New York Times Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Alfred A. Knopf and Family Circle.

Seeking a change in work and weather, Mark then headed south to Atlanta, Georgia where he became Directory of Photography for Turner Broadcasting. For 20 years, Mark managed and mentored a merry band of young photographers. At the same time, Mark was behind the camera – both still and video -- for all the Turner networks, including CNN, TBS, TNT, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, and TruTV.

Mark returned to the freelance world in 2014, joined the Local 600 camera union and started shooting for such networks and companies as HBO, NBC, The CW, Delta Airlines, Home Depot and A&E to name a few.

Despite being nominated for Emmy awards in 2010 and 2011, Mark remains a simple guy. He can often be found camping with his son’s Boy Scout troop, perfecting his smoked ribs, or searching for discounted tee times at public golf courses.
