MARK PARTRIDGE graduated from The National Film and Television School as a Director of Photography. In his career as a film maker he has photographed and operated on over twenty drama specials, series and feature films. His early work included 'MIND GAMES' (ITV) 'LIFE SUPPORT' (BBC Scotland) and 'THE INSPECTOR LYNLEY MYSTERIES' (BBC). Mark's work on 'ODOUR OF CHRYSANTHEMUMS' led to two international awards for BEST SHORT FILM and BEST PHOTOGRAPHY.

More recently Mark has photographed three consecutive series of 'LARK RISE to CANDLEFORD' (BBC 2009-2011) for which he won a BEST PHOTOGRAPHY award, the feature film, 'CUCKOO' (PUNK CINEMA 2009) and two short films for the BBC's television series 'LIFE STORIES' (2012).

Mark has also had a career in motor sport as a race car engineer and holds a BA Honours degree in English Literature and Language from Cambridge University.


'Mark worked as DOP on Lark Rise for three years. His work was outstanding. We had to shoot quickly and still achieve a filmic, beautiful look: Mark achieved this over thirty episodes, with various directors, providing photography that was constantly lovely, sensitive to story telling, serving the actors well, and detailed in ways that helped us hold on to the show's true identity.'

Mark was also DOP on two short films I directed, and his calmness, great skill and good humour contributed to a hugely pleasant and productive shoot. I am very grateful for his generous collaboration and wonderful eye for a great shot.

Bill Gallagher - Executive Producer on 'Lark Rise To Candleford' and Director on 'Life Stories.'

'We have achieved two wonderful short films that are beautiful, elegant and thought provoking - and I'm sure we wouldn't have achieved it to quite the high standard without Mark's involvement. His vision was key to our project. And being a real team player meant there was always a fantastic atmosphere on set.'
