Mark Taylor is a freelance editorial photographer and journalist based in Tampa, Florida. Born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, he believes good people skills are just as important as technical know-how when it comes to making great pictures. 

Taylor got his start as a staff photographer at a daily newspaper in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. He has gone on to shoot assignments for The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Maclean's magazine, National Post, the Canadian Press and Getty Images. His photos have appeared in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News, New York Post, Miami Herald, USA Today, The Athletic, ESPN.com, CNN and numerous other websites and publications throughout North America and around the world. Other clients include the National Film Board of Canada, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and Scotland's Sunday Post. He has also worked as a reporter and columnist at daily newspapers; as a television and radio reporter and producer with the CBC; and as a sportswriter covering the Western Hockey League's Regina Pats for six seasons for the Canadian Press.

Taylor can also preach what he practices. From 2009 to 2021 he taught at the University of Regina’s School of Journalism, where he also managed the school's internship program; ran all its social media accounts; and laid out its annual student news magazine. He was awarded tenure there in 2016 and voted voted as the school’s youngest-ever department head in 2018, a role in which he expanded the school's Indiginization efforts; increased enrollment; secured a tenure-track, term and chair position; and pitched and prepared a proposal resulting in a $400,000 donation to the school to create an additional teaching chair. He left the School of Journalism in April, 2021 to move to Tampa with his wife and children. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies (2000) and a Bachelor of Journalism (2004), both from the University of Regina. He is a member of the NPPA and is available for assignment anywhere.
