The best way you help yourself is to walk outside , take some photos and post them here so we could look at it. Multiple photos to see if it actually moves or not. The example so far and your comments are not helping me understand how the issues arises and how it impacts. We'd all be delighted to help if you could give good examples and clear explanations. Please ensure the back of your lens is clean.

Doubt he'll take your good advice.  I think this is bizarre on purpose.  I'm cynical!

I agree with Mt Spokane. It looks like it could be some physical debris, or a bug or something physically inside the camera or lens.

I assume you've tried several lenses, also cleaned the sensor?

Providing a real image instead of a screenshot would definitely be a good start.

I have two lens for this camera, and notice it on lens, and check the other and now notice it a bit more.

Sorry, i finding it a bit hard to explain this by text, I took a load of photos on Sunday and upload some tonight and I will check the back of both lens are clean.

How to remove bugs from inside the lens or camera?

If you are referring to the dark blotches, such as the ones about an inch above the person's left eye in the photo, then you may have debris trapped behind the shutter.  If so, try performing a manual cleaning using a bulb-type air blower, like this one:

See page 299 in the 5D Mark III manual on how to start a Manual Sensor Cleaning.  It locks up the mirror and opens the shutter, so you can use the blower.  You can download the manual here:

https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/cameras/dslr/eos-5d-mark-iii

You may need to hold the camera so that the lens opening is facing down (e.g. above your head, so you can see what you're doing), so that any debris falls out.

Here's a simple how-to video:

Since the marks are not always in the same place, that's what makes me think they are tiny pieces of debris that are getting moved around when the shutter opens and closes.

If using the blower, as I suggested, does not get rid of them, then send the camera body to Canon for a cleaning.

I agree. Don't be shy about using a blower, let gravity be your friend. Also there are many sensor cleaning tools out there. They are not difficult and only require a steady hand to work well. I'd spend $29 and try these before sending to Canon, unless I had CPS.

I also order some senor cleaning items as well
