Mark Broadbent is a freelance cinematographer based in Brisbane, Australia.
Mark’s passion for photography and cinematography all began when at the ripe old age of 7 he received his first camera - a blue Fisher Price 110 film camera. It was love at first sight and whilst his toys may have gotten more sophisticated over the years, Mark’s passion for photography hasn’t waned. Mark’s discovery of cinematography at 15 when he started studying Film and Television at high school set him onto the path he is on today; combining his loves for both photography and cinematography into a successful career.
