I am Mark Leighton, an English photographer living since 1999 in the Algarve, Portugal.
I shoot mainly athletic young men on the beautiful locations that I am lucky enough to live near. For prospective models, if you have a look of the standard of the models you see here on my site, I can sometimes offer a free shot including private holiday accommodation. For information about a paid shoot, please message me.

For information about buying selective images, please message me.

I hope you enjoy visiting my site and welcome your comments and feed back.

Thank you.
