12 from 12

December 12, 2012 – 12:12 pm

It’s been such an incredible year, with fun new projects, exhibitions, new friends, travel and amazing new clients. I’ve put together a wrap up of my top 12 from 2012. And of course, I had to post it on 12.12.12 at 12:12.

Mark Lobo - Matt Tucker - Japanese Tattoos

Matt Tucker – I helped Matt Tucker document his beautiful tattoos by renowned Japanese tattoo artist, Horiyasu.  The final product was an incredible large framed print on metallic paper.  It was truly rewarding to work on this passion project with Matt and produce something that he truly loved.

Mark Lobo Photography - Rangitoto Island - Auckland - New Zealand

New Zealand – My birthday weekend was spent in Auckland, New Zealand, taking photos and playing tourist in such an incredibly photogenic country.

Mark Lobo - Phoot Camp - Ike Edeani

Phoot Camp 2012 – I caught up with old friends and made many new ones at Phoot Camp 2012  followed by an exhibition in New York. It was truly one of the highlights of the year, with a trip to San Francisco, Chicago and Boston thrown in!  The trip also inspired a new personal series of mine, titled “In their shoes“.

Mark Lobo Photography - Brisbane - Darren Lockyer

Darren Lockyer – Rugby league legend Darren Lockyer sat for his portrait for an editorial piece I photographed for WISH magazine.  It was inspiring to work with someone so accomplished, yet so humble and authentic in character.

Mark Lobo Photography Melbourne - Finders Keepers Markets

Finders Keepers Melbourne – I’ve started to focus on working out of both Melbourne and Brisbane. The Finders Keepers Markets, which I also shot in Melbourne a few years back was impressive in scale, as was the beautiful light that hit everything inside the venue.

Mark Lobo - iPhone Photography Award

IPPA award – My obsession with capturing moments on my phone actually paid off  (well, slightly), with two of my Instagram photos getting two honourable mentions in the 6th annual iPhone photography awards.

Mark Lobo - Mark Visser - Hemispheres Magazine

Mark Visser – Sand filled my camera gear as I spent a morning on the beach photographing big wave surfer Mark Visser, most notably known for his death cheating big wave ride at night, which earned him the nick name “Night Rider”.

Von Vintage – I took my Von Vintage work on a road trip to exhibit at analogue gallery, Strip of a Lifetime, in Newcastle. This is a video from opening night.

Mark Lobo Billboard - Go Health

Go Health – Billboards around the city started to fill up with my work with Go Health Gyms and Big Fish. Seeing work appearing larger than life always invokes an odd, giddy feeling of excitement in me that never gets old.

Mark Lobo - Foot Locker - Forever Summer

Foot Locker – I worked on a few Footlocker campaigns in Melbourne and Brisbane with the Famous Group.  I ws thrilled to see this Summer campaign finally hit the stores and I can’t wait to see the results from the other shoots.

Mark Lobo - Sofitel Magazine - Enchante

Sofitel – I worked with Sofitel and Underbrand to create imagery for their new magazine, Enchanté.  I shot some delicious looking food photography and got some great city views.

Mark Lobo - Seven With Another - Spinning Cube

Seven with Another – I teamed up with talented “Maker”, Adam Head, to collaborate on a project for art exhibition, Seven With Another. We created a large spinning cube that would fill the room with light when triggered by the flash of a camera. I’m working on a side project with this piece, which I’ll share soon.

Stay safe and have a great holiday season everyone! I’m looking forward to an even better 2013!

Von Vintage Exhibition at “Strip of a Lifetime” in Newcastle

September 14, 2012 – 9:52 am

Von Vintage - Strip Of A Lifetime Poster - Mark Lobo

A good friend of mine, Lani recently came across a beautiful vintage hire shop and analog art gallery in Newcastle called, “Strip of a Lifetime“.  She instantly thought of my Von Vintage project and urged me to get in touch.  I checked them out and fell in love.  The shop is home to an original coin operated 1960’s photo-booth and their tagline is, “Dedicated to the preservation of the Vintage Photography Experience”, one of the driving forces behind the Von Vintage project.

The space itself is supported by Renew Newcastle which aims to provide unused spaces to artists, cultural projects and community groups.  I couldn’t think of a more like minded endeavor to get Von Vintage involved with. So after exchanging a few emails with owner, Paula Birch, I’ll be road tripping down to Newcastle to exhibit my work on the 27th of September! Opening night will be a part of the Renew Newcastle’s Spring City Walk, which I am very excited to be a part of.  And I couldn’t have asked for a better time to be in Newcastle, the exhibition also coincides with the This Is Not Art festival!

Please help spread the word, or drop in if you are in, or able to get to Newcastle!  Hope to see you there!

The details:

When:
Thursday, 27 September 2012, 4- 7pm
