Mark is a world renown, award winning astrophotographer who’s photos touch people in ways he could not have imagined.

Originally from the Gold Coast of Australia, Mark now makes his home in New Zealand. It was here in New Zealand that he discovered the night skies. Trained as a graphics designer and employed as a videographer (feature film industry on movies like, “Lord of the Rings”, “The Hobbit”, “Avatar” and “King Kong”), he has always had an eye for photography.  He got the photography itch about 10 years ago when he started reading posts in an on-line photography group. One of the posts talked about night photography.

Having never truly seen the night sky due to the level of ambient light along the Gold Coast in Australia, the night skies of New Zealand opened up a whole new world. Awed by what he saw, he took his trusty Canon 40D and shot into the night sky.  But when he looked on his camera display, he saw nothing but black. There were no stars at all! Challenged, Mark worked his craft, learned the ins and outs of shooting at night, and began to capture the images that awed him in the night sky. His work took off bringing him international recognition in 2013 with Astronomy Photographer of the Year.

Our New Mission

As the Covid-19 outbreak continues to spread around the globe, we wanted to let all of our affiliates, donors, supporters and causes know we are still working to assist those most in need.  

We are grateful to have a very dedicated team positioned around the world who are all able to continue their work helping when and where they can.

Currently our focus is to support our causes with buying food and diapers for the children they serve, more vegetables will need to be grown for the clinics working with people who are HIV positive. We know there will be more displacement of people who are already less fortunate and struggling and WorldPix exists to support these issues.

The time to help is now, more so now than in the last 100 years!

We humbly request that you think about how you can help and act on that while staying safe and taking heed of important information and direction to help bring Covid-19 under control.

Stay safe
WorldPix team
