Mark Harrison is the father of two beautiful and amazing daughters and is madly in love with his high school sweetheart with whom he shares a home and acreage near Snohomish, Wa. He grew up in a newspaper family; his father was the publisher and his mother the editor of an award winning community weekly in rural Minnesota. Early mentoring from nearby daily newspaper photographer, Jim Brandenburg, lead to the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri where Harrison placed first in the Hearst college photojournalism championship in 1984. He has been a staff photographer at The Seattle Times since 1986.
