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’s 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.
