Though Mark Widick took the practical route in following his “Granddaddy Doctor’s” footsteps, his foray into photography was inevitable. Moving to Cocoa Beach, he found himself in his formative years surrounded by astronauts in the heyday of the American space program. This, coupled with popular space-themed television programming and photographing the Apollo 15 liftoff, fueled his passion even further, and ultimately turn his hobby into a profession while continuing to practice medicine.


“Widick’s stunning Space Shuttle Series captures the awe and beauty of our nation’s scientific achievements in a light that truly comes from the subject itself,” said Rena Blades, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.  Widick, currently enjoys a dual-career as a medical physician and as a professional photographer. He earned his medical degree at the University of Florida and his Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry at Florida State University.
