Meet the Photographer

Mark's appreciation for nature began as a child while growing up in Atlanta, Georgia. He spent so much of his time in the woods behind his home that his Dad once told him "You can't spend your whole life in the woods". Well so much for that.

He went on first combining his love of nature with photography in the Boy Scouts when he began recording his adventures with a simple box camera. Later, in 1971, with the escalation of our country's involvement in the Viet Nam conflict, he enlisted in the United States Navy. He then volunteered and completed the required training and became a member of the Navy's elite Underwater Demolition/SEAL Teams. Always keeping his cameras close by, he used any time Uncle Sam didn't require his services to build a photographic portfolio. He left the Navy in 1993 after completing a 20 year career with Naval Special Warfare.

He now lives in the "Natural State" and calls Northwest Arkansas his home. He continues to travel and photograph the natural beauty of this great country. He hopes that you will continue to visit this website to check for updates from his latest photographic adventure.

What Clients Are Saying

Janice Gravett

"I would recommend Mark A Cummings Photography for any occasion. I have had portraits taken by Mark and he is fun and easy to work with, but also very professional and meticulous. I have also purchased two of his landscapes for my new home, and they are both everything I was hoping for. When I look at the pictures I am taken to those scenes in my mind. I can almost smell the ocean in my sunset print and in my fall picture I can hear the creek running and the rustling of the leaves in the trees giving my home the warm natural feeling I was hoping to achieve."
