Pecha Kucha Night Volume 10 – Brisbane

April 8, 2009 – 4:00 pm

Pecha Kucha Night – Volume 10 was held as part of the Brisbane Ideas Festival on the 27th of March. I had the opportunity to present at the event and speak about some of my work and projects.

Pecha Kucha is an event where any designer, artist, architect, interactive media or alike, are given the soapbox to present their designs, thoughts and ideas. Each presenter gets 20 seconds to showcase and talk about 20 slides of their work.

This is a video of my presentation. Lots of “umms”, I know, but with a packed crowd of 300 in the room, 200 on the 2nd floor balcony, and another few hundred on the ground floor watching the live feed, I was pretty nervous!

Designer Fight Club @ the Zoo!

July 18, 2008 – 5:13 pm

Last night, 12 of Brisbane’s hottest Designers battled it out at Designer Fight Club at the Zoo in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.  After checking out the student competition last month, I was intrigued to see what the “industry professionals” battle would hold.  With a heckling MC, 30 minutes to come up with a design, and some challenging briefs, the night did not disappoint.  My personal favourite of the night came from Corin Edwards, self proclaimed “rock’n’roll librarian”, who incorporated an 8 eyed dinosaur into his design (upon request)… and subsequently won his round!  Congrats to Jess from JosephMark who took out first prize in the event!  Some shots from the night:

Joshua Levi Galleries – Opening at the Old Antique Shop

June 13, 2008 – 1:00 pm

Last night I attended the opening of Joshua Levi Galleries to help welcome Brisbane’s freshest new gallery to the art community. The gallery space has undergone an amazing makeover. What was once an old antique shop, is now one of Brisbane’s most unique exhibiting spaces. In-house canvas printing and framing, studio space, limited edition prints, and original artworks are a just a few of the many things that makes Joshua Levi Galleries one of the most attractive exhibiting spaces for artitsts and photographers. The night showcased some amazing work from artists such as Nic Plowman and Emma Sheldrake… oh and MYSELF! I have some limited edition canvas prints on the walls in the gallery, so head in there and check them out!

Shooting Raw 2008 Winnings! Photographers’ Award and People’s Choice Award!

April 11, 2008 – 10:14 am

Mark Lobo Photography - Shooting Raw 2008

The much anticipated exhibition and judging of the photos from Shooting Raw 2008 was held on Wednesday night. Shooting Raw is a photographic competition I took part in, in which each photographer is given a half hour time slot to shoot 12 frames, with one nude model and an unseen location, (see my previous post for more info). It was great to see the work of all the other photographers and how they worked with what was quite a challenging environment.

To top off the night, I ended up winning the Photographers’ Award and the People’s Choice award for the same photo (above)! The shot won 2 out of the 3 awards presented! The prints will be available for purchase from the Shooting Raw website, with proceeds going to the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. Thanks to Pat, Norm, The Joynt, sponsors and guests!

Shooting Raw 2008
Nothing to Hide

April 2, 2008 – 4:42 pm

 

Mark Lobo Photography - Shooting Raw 2008

I was a recent participating photographer in Shooting Raw 2008, a photographic competition in which each photographer has 12 shots to bring an unseen location and a nude model to life.

A bit about the exhibition:

“Shooting Raw is a model photography competition which throws out the traditional environment of the model photographer. We present them with a new environment, a model they’ve never met before with limited tools and very few chances to get the shot right. The emphasis is about thinking on your feet and taking advantage of the environment, being able to see the possibilities of what there is around you, without the ability to create exactly what you’d like. “

To bring a challenge to the competition, only 12 frames were allowed to be shot in a half hour period and the location was provided only just before the event. More rules here. This year, the shoot was held in Austinville on the Gold Coast.
Photos from the competition will be exhibited and judged at The JoYnt in South Brisbane on April 9th, 2008.

Please come check out the results!

Heart of Gold International Film Festival

January 20, 2008 – 3:17 pm

Margaret Pomeranz - Heart of Gold

Heart of Gold International Film Festival

 

Heart of Gold Film Festival

 

Heart of Gold International Film Festival

The rural mining town of Gympie, located on the Fraser Coast recently held it’s second annual International Film Festival, drawing impressive crowds and film makers from around the globe. The Heart of Gold International Film Festival is a festival with a difference and an inspiring vision, and being asked to be the photographer for the event couldn’t have been more of an honour. The entire community pitched in to help bring an impressive showcase of short and feature length films to the four day festival. Seminars were held with some very inspiring speakers, including Margaret Pomeranz, Rick Stevenson, Cathy Henkel and Loic Valmy. With an impressive 130 films from 38 countries, I made the most of every spare moment to catch a glimpse of what the film festival was all about, “films that make us laugh, give us hope, inspire us and get us back to a focus on what is really important, each other”. The Heart of Gold Website can be found here, and if you are a film maker, get your entries in! Hopefully I’ll see you there in 2008!*

*NOTE – The date for the 2008 Heart of Gold International Film Festival has unforunately had to be postponed until March 25-29, 2009!
