Mark Bochiardy

Wildlife, birds, landscapes and surfing photographer

Born and raised in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., I grew up around surfing, hunting, fishing, auto racing and camping. All of these outdoors-type activities contributed in some way to my current style of photography. The Business part of my journey is behind me, and my photography career has now come full circle. These days I’m mostly near my home capturing the wildlife, birds, landscapes and surfing images that first piqued my interest in the art of photography so many years ago.
