I was born in Sydney Australia (1st August 1985), I began my career in media at an early age taking on photography as a hobby and soon moving into filming music videos and editing videos for Australian Guitar magazine in the Sydney area.
I moved to Finland, Europe in 2009 in pursuit of a career in Media. With years of music video making and editing experience during my last years in Australia, I moved into the world of Fashion Photography upon arrival to Finland. Since my immigration to Finland, I started a Media company of talented entrepreneurs conducting productions for Fashion, Music Videos, TV commercials and Short Films. In 2015 I began my feature film career with a chance to be Director Of Photography and editor on the Irish Production "The Priest". It wasnt long after the Irish film I had the pleasure of shooting the sci-fi action thriller "Project Eden:Vol 1", featuring childhood favourite actors from The Mummy and Stargate. In-between now and then my time has been filled with TV commercials, music videos, consultation and content creation.
This year I have just finished DPing an Iranian/Finnish Action film called “Layers of Lies” Directed by Ramin Sohrab, which is to be released coming early 2019. I am currently co-producing and DPing 2 large projects for Lamborghini and GP Game Production, and I now currently living in Dubai.
Most people know me as "Mark Hobz" or "Hobz" which is the name I use for my professional career.
The years in Europe have taken me into TV commercials, Music video and Feature films. From these higher-end productions and co-founding a few production companies, I have gained many producer affiliated skills. I now works along side Producer Perttu Saarela (Doctor Who, World Of Warcraft, Army of Two) in content creation for TV commercials and corporate films for Nordic businesses.
