Mark Erickson makes his living as an assistant fire chief for a suburban twin cities fire department - his passion, however, is photography. A self-taught photographer, Mark learned to take pictures at a young age using a Pentax camera his father brought home from Vietnam. He later honed his skills photographing fires throughout the Twin Cities. His first published photo came in 1994, in a national firefighting magazine. Since then, Mark has become an accomplished photographer, shooting landscapes, sports and news events. As a freelance photojournalist, Mark has covered everything from local news stories and high school athletics to national news events and professional sports. Mark has covered the Winter Olympics, the Final Four and numerous Presidential events, including an assignment in the East Room of the White House. Among others, Mark has been published the Pioneer Press, the StarTribue, USA Today, Time Magazine, The New York Times and Sports Illustrated. Recently, Mark has focused his efforts on Minnesota high school sports scene, photographing state tournaments for the State High School League.
Mark began his relationship with the Minnesota State High School League in 2002 as the lead photographer for 20-20 Photographic, the League's former photography partner. When 20-20 closed shop, Mark used the relationship he built with the League to move in as the League's official photographer. With longtime friend and photographer Adam Bettcher, Mark formed Minnesota Prep Photo in 2006 and continues to provide outstanding photographic coverage of Minnesota's high school tournaments.
