As Managing Director of Maxwell Creative Photography team, Mark Maxwell has led an award winning group of photographers to a multitude of media events both nationally and internationally over the last decade.
His career started with The Irish Times newspaper as a contract freelance photographer which in turn led to a host of other Irish national media outlets requesting his much sought after work.
After completing more than ten years at the coal face of the Irish newspaper photography industry, his career saw him move into the Corporate Public Relations photography world.
During this transition he worked with the former two-term President of Ireland Mary McAleese and her media team. While in this role he was heavily involved in setting up a photographic documentary project which detailed her 14 years in office.
Over the two terms, his assignments involved a series of important events in Ireland and overseas including State visits to countries such as Africa, Europe, Asia, North and South America.
As the President’s official photographer Mark captured many of the memorable highlights of her presidency including the visits of several United States Presidents including Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Barack Obama to Ireland.
The groundbreaking first State visit of Great Britain and Northern Ireland’s Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, from May 17 to 2017, 2011 at the invitation of the President McAleese was the highlight while working for the President.
More recently Mark and Maxwells photography were the official photographers for the visit of Pope Francis in August, 2018 which they successfully achieved, while meeting the logistical challenge of organising a team of 15 photographers to cover every aspect of the two day trip.
The resulting imagery was used by the international print, broadcast media, online outlets and news agencies including the New York Times, CNN, Time.com, Reuters and Getty to name but a few.
The State’s marking of the 100th year anniversary of the 1916 Rising, celebrated five years ago was a similar event in its size and planning to that of the Queen’s visit as photographic requirements demanded a lead time of several weeks, accompanied by close interaction with the numerous stakeholders involved.
To execute all photographic requirements, a very detailed plan was put in place to ensure the historic pictures were captured and syndicated to both national and international media outlets within minutes of each event occurring.
Mark continues to lead the Maxwell Photography team as Managing Director with his advice and expertise being called upon by a host of Corporate and Government clients.
Over the last 20 years he has also proudly trained numerous photographers who subsequently became award winning and whose work graces the daily pages of our national media.
