Mark Crislip has a real passion for polo and is a student of the game. Photographing the sport has always come second to playing it. If you want to talk about the game, strategy or trade stories of injuries on the pitch, he can more than keep up.
He is an experienced sports photographer but is also an accomplished painter, as well as graphic and digital art. His paintings have been featured in galleries in the exclusive Georgetown district of Washington, DC hanging alongside artists like Warhol, Lichtenstein and Rauschenberg. Collectors include individuals from ten different countries and include prominent members of the press, political and entertainment industries.
If you love polo, there's nowhere else to be but Argentina, and he spends most of the year there. He also keeps a home in West Palm Beach, Florida and can be found in and around Wellington during the U.S. high goal season.
His unique experiences as an artist and a player have given his photos a distinctive style like none other and their look has drawn clients from all over the world.
