Mark’s Case Study

Mark joined the army as a Combat Medical Technician in 1999 and served for 12 years.  Following deployment to both Iraq and Afghanistan Mark was medically discharged with PTSD in January 2012.

Learning to live with his PTSD was difficult for Mark and his confidence was at an all time low. Prior to joining the army and during his service Mark always had a passion and talent for photography and it wasn’t until his wife secretly entered one of his pictures into a competition where he won first place, his confidence began to grow. It was then that Mark began to consider potentially pursuing photography as a career path but needed funding for training and qualifications.

Walking With The Wounded’s First Steps programme funded Mark to re-train and complete a City & Guilds Level 3. Mark also completed a Diploma in Wedding and Studio Photography.

Today Mark continues to work full time as a photographer. To view Marks work or contact him for a quote please visit:!contact/czpl

Mark Dawson said: “Walking With The Wounded have helped me tremendously. I would not of been able to afford to complete a Level 3 course in Photography without the help and support I have received. The staff are all amazing and I now have the privilege of working as a photographer for Walking With The Wounded as well as other fantastic organisations and charities and through my work I have travelled to France, Spain, USA and soon Germany and Switzerland, all thanks to Walking With The Wounded”
