    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    Mark Tripp
    With over 45 years of experience, I first started taking photos at the age of 14.
    My first camera was a Pentax SLR K1000 then moving into a Canon AE1 SLR.
    Purchased my first medium format camera in 1977, a Mamiya RB67 and then in 1978 this was when my photography business started. Primarily with weddings and portraits and then starting modelling, fashion, commercial and magazine photography.

    I originally took up photography to showcase my art, signwriting, graphic designs and visual merchandising but requests started about doing portraits and weddings. I also started in photo / journalism building up to freelance for over 20 Australian magazines and several oversea publications as well. To name a few - Australian Street Machine, Australian Street Rodding, Australasian Post, Women 2019s Weekly, Trucking Life, Vogue, Vogue House and Garden, Studio Fashion, Conde Nast Publications, People, Performance Street Car plus many more. I also started selling my images through a stock library, Auschromes where I was successful in selling my images here in Australia and overseas. Never really been into entering competitions however one I did enter through a photography magazine, I came first in this world wide portrait competition.

    I have also done a lot of modelling portfolios and hair images. I worked closely with several Tasmanian Modellling Agencies and hair salons. I was secretary / treasurer for The Australian Mannequin and Models Guild ( Tas Division ) for several years and helped co-ordinate The Mannequin and Photographic Model of the Year Awards. I was also successful in supplying award winning hair images for many hair stylists.

    Went back to visual merchandising part time for a few years while still continuing my photography business. Then in 2002 I was hired at Southern Cross Television now 7 Tasmania - Southern Cross Austereo, as a commercial producer. With the rapidly changes in technology I now also am a videographer / editor while still doing a lot of commercial photography. I have developed skills in photoshop, Lightroom and many more appplications to evolve my art and photography. I also have a strong presence with online sites where I sell my art and photography. Also still continue to sell digital images through stock libraries. Started in August 2020 with The Launceston Photography Group to become one of their instructors for the Launceston, Tasmania area.

    Mark Tripp is available for private bookings

    Available for private tutoring.

    My first photographic passion was for botanical subjects in a wild setting as this is what the image portrays. We often view the world above or from a distance and rarely at eye level.

    The image was taken around 10am and for the past few hours I had heard the sounds of the Rainbow lorikeets in the reserve that adjoins my home but couldn't find where they were. After few minutes stalking the flock I happened to find this couple doing what looks like nuzzling but is in fact allopreening a practice for either couples or siblings to maintain hygiene and health of the feathers. Unfortunately for me that as soon as I had managed to capture this image the male spotted me and launche

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    This photo captures a serene moment in my front yard, where I lay on a blanket beneath a amazing tree. The weather was ideal, prompting me to grab my micro lens and focus on this exquisite dandelion.

    Title or Location: My house in Lewisville
    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
