Amidst the highrise buildings of Melbourne’s city, icons of a bygone era still exist. Beneath the cone of Melbourne Central, the tower from an old lead shot factory has been encased for future generations to enjoy.

My interest in photography began back in high-school when I used my mother’s Olympus OM-1 to shoot sports events. I learnt to understand film, light meters and other technical issues. I bought my first SLR, a Nikon F70, when I finished uni and became more focussed on shooting portraiture, landscape and photojournalism. Since then I have not looked back opening my own business in 2009 specialising in portrait photography. www.markephotography.com.au
