About

… Me

I’m an natural-born Arkansas Hillbilly and Native Son of the beautiful resort town of Hot Springs, where I was born and remain – Mark Corder, an aging Boomer.

I’ve had a life-long interest in Art, and have been into Photography since I was about 12. I’ve studied both, and worked as a Professional Photographer through most of the 1980’s – doing studio and event work back in the days of film and darkrooms. I don’t have to tell you that a lot has changed since then. These days I’m 100%-digital and loving every byte of it. The landscapes, nature, architecture, and rural scenes of Arkansas are almost exclusive subjects for me – both as photographs, and digital artwork created from them.

… This site

My main site here at MarkCorder.com functions as a showcase for what I consider the best of my original photos and artwork. I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy creating them, and hopefully they will even inspire you to get out and find some great locations to visit and photograph for yourself. You’re welcome to save the images you find here to use as wallpaper, etc. for personal use only – but please read and respect my copyright restrictions for other uses. (And don’t be afraid to ask!) Please feel free to share this site – use the links down in the footer for that – or each post has it’s own sharing buttons you can use.

  • Every image can be clicked-on or tapped. Thumbnails and Gallery images will take you to the related post for that image, where you can learn more about it, view if full-screen, share it with others, and more.
  • The two main categories are Photography and Artwork (all images are one or the other). The Natural State contains images that showcase scenes of Arkansas, and Flora & Fauna is nature scenes in general but not exclusive to Arkansas. Other Items is anything else! Don’t forget you can also view images by the related Tags, or just search for something. (At a complete loss? Try a Random Post!)
  • For much of the plumbing and wiring of this site, I owe thanks to Foundation 6 and WP-Forge.

… My Neck of the Woods

Hot Springs, Arkansas is my home-base – but I tend to wander. Here’s a map with just a few of my favorite locations – where many of the photos seen here were taken.

Happy Browsing!
