About Mark Gee
Mark Gee is an award winning photographer and time-lapse filmmaker based in Wellington, New Zealand.
Wholly self-taught, Mark ventures out to the darkest, most remote locations both locally and internationally, enjoying the challenge of combining striking landscapes with the ethereal beauty of the night sky in new, creative ways.
His short film, ‘Full Moon Silhouettes‘ gained him international acclaim after going viral online, and in 2013, Mark won the prestigious Astronomy Photographer of the Year. Not only did he win it overall, but Mark also won the Earth and Space category, and the People and Space category which had never been done before in the competition's history.
Since then, Mark has gone onto to sharing his passion and knowledge through workshops and on the public speaking circuit. One of the highlights of that was his well received TEDx talk in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2014.
