Mark S. Perry (1955- ), has spent his entire life in Ohio. Born in the picturesque,

historic river town of Marietta, Ohio, Mark was raised along the Ohio River in the

small town of Belpre, OH. His interests were science and the arts throughout his

education. Fascinated by his Dad’s Polaroid camera in the 60’s, Mark’s interest in

photography was strong but life didn’t allow him to pursue photography with vigor

until later in life. Mark attended and graduated from Ohio University in Athens, OH

majoring in microbiology and completed the pre-medical technology program. He

went on to become a registered medical technologist specializing in microbiology.

His distinguished career in medicine has consisted of successful positions in

management and diagnostic sales. Before devoting his free time to digital

photography, Mark officiated high school and college baseball for 38 seasons

which included experience officiating a Division III College World Series and

professional baseball.

After his son, Jared, was raised and through college, Mark then focused like a laser

beam on his love for photography as an art. In 2008, he founded the Midwest

Photography Enthusiasts Group (MPEG) which has over 150 members from Ohio

and five surrounding states. Mark is the “Chief Enthusiast”. Mark’s love for

scenic landscapes and our precious wildlife is evident in his photography. His work

has been published in ezines like Photography Week, park and recreation

magazines, and a video for wolf preservation.

Mark is best known for his love for American bald eagle and HDR (high dynamic

range ) photography and digital paintery art techniques.

His wife of 35 years, Kimberly, is a nurse and they currently live in Cleveland, OH

“next to” the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio’s only National Park. Their long

term goal is a move to southwestern Montana.
