Deadrise Marine Photography launched its website October 2017 to share the images created by Mark Hergan. Mark is an avid sailor and photographer on the Chesapeake Bay and it's tributaries. A graduate of St. Mary's College of Maryland and a founding member of the college's Offshore Sailing Team. He currently races his Soverel 27 Morning Star on Tuesday nights with Baltimore City Yacht Association (BCYA) and frostbites his laser with Havre de Grace Yacht Club. Mark started actively photographing CBYRA junior sailing regattas the summer of 2014 while traveling the Chesapeake Bay with his son and other members of the North East River Yacht Club's junior sailing team. He could always be found floating around the racing course in his 17' Boston Whaler Montauk taking photos and assisting junior sailors in need. Mark now travels the bay in an 18' Scout CC Sportfish photographing regattas. Chesapeake Log Canoes are his favorite subject and he published his first book on Log Canoes January 2017.
