Mark A. Johnson
My name is Mark Johnson, and I’m a professional ocean, travel and adventure photographer. As a young kid, I started surfing at Kailua Beach in Hawaii, and as I got better, progressed to Pipeline and other North Shore spots, and then to surfing on Kauai and around the world. I live in Australia, and travel to Hawaii each year.
From my early teens, when I started shooting surfers and waves, I was in demand by my fellow water lovers, and when my first photograph was published in Surfing at the age of 18, my work was also sought after by photo editors, art directors, and regular folks who bought my fine-art prints. I’m far from only a surfing and wave photographer; my love of traveling and nature has allowed me to branch into those photographic realms as well.
