The Timeless Dimension Company was formed in the summer of 1997 by Mark Alliston. Having completed a degree in Environmental Biology in 1996, Mark then went travelling for 6 months, when he returned he spent time doing voluntary work on a nature reserve where he had the opportunity to photograph wildlife. The Timeless Dimension Company website was created to display and sell his photographs.
It was not just his photographs that proved popular, the software he wrote to sell his photographs was also popular and he gained clients from Estate Agents helping them to adapt to the new online selling environment. His software was one of the first that enabled property for sale to be displayed online where the Estate Agent could manage which properties were available.
Prior to this Mark had started his career in 1982 as a Software developer working with one of the Pioneer companies writing software for Estate Agents. He helped write the first applicant to property matching database as well as an early property management database application. From there he went on to work for a software company that specialised in products for advertising agencies. He joined an advertising company in 1986 working with media and production.
In 1993 events took a change and Mark who has always had a keen interest in the Natural World, started a degree in Environmental Biology which he completed in 1996. At the same time he studied for his City and Guilds in Photography which had been a passion since his school days when he took O ‘Level photography and spent the last two years at school doing photography as his main subject.
Mark now successfully combines his Technology skills with his passion for photography and the environment.
He is a qualified Energy Assessor as well as a CAA approved Drone Pilot and a member of The Royal Photographic Society.
