To provide on-the-ground expertise and a world-class experience.


Mary Marks is a US-based photographer specializing in travel, abstract and fine-art photography.  She has traveled and photographed in over 55 countries across seven continents.

Mary embraced photography decades ago as a creative outlet to her fun yet demanding job as a wholesale travel buyer. It was during this time Mary envisioned founding a company that paired travel with photography workshops. And after years of contemplation, visualization and preparation, PhotoQuest360 came into being. 

Mary’s recognized by her peers in both the travel and photography industries for her enthusiastic, down to earth approach and her ability to connect on an intimate level with people from a wide variety of culturally diverse backgrounds.
