About Mark Johnson

Chronicles oddities

There's something odd about Mark

Chronicles of Mark Johnson
 The award winning story of ex-celebrity photographer turned demon hunter, Mark Johnson, holds hidden secrets to my deep thoughts http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008BEDMSO

Mark Johnson 
 The story of the ex-photographer https://www.draft2digital.com/book/32117 in many ways mirrors my life. I never went to a university, or got a high paid job as a photographer, but in other ways we ARE very much alike. We both hate the artificial lives of the celebrities, love real life photogarpahy and photographers such as Frank Meadow Sutcliffe  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Meadow_Sutcliffe who gained a reputation for taking photographs of fishermen at Whitby, North Yorkshire in the Victorian era. 

The joke's on me
 The biggest joke is on me - this is my only bit of arrogant behaviour - and is so unlike me. I was concerned there might be so much interest in the stories, I would get asked questions about Marks' background that I had no answers to. My bad - nobody was interested - lesson learned.
There were many unanswered questions at the end of book 2  https://www.draft2digital.com/book/32125 , not the least of which is, how close were Mark & Rachel, if anyone had read this second instalment, there was a good chance the series would have continued, and the answers be revealed, alas, it wasn't to be. The series ended on a mystery  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BO04Y20 

 The book was dedicated to journalists like Mike Herr, Dana Stone, Tim Page, Marie Colvin, Kate Adie, Sean Penn,and the many other photographers who put their lives at risk to bring us the news, and rarely get thanked. People such as David Bailey, Tony Snowdon, and Patrick Lichfield may please the high & mighty, but for real photography, you need to meet real people not celebrities.
