Thankfully times have changed and graffiti now receives the respect it deserves as an art form with many collectors paying thousands of dollars for pieces to hang on their walls.
Mark’s experience with graffiti art gave him an excellent introduction to working with colours effectively and composition techniques which came in handy later in life when he first picked up a camera.
For his final year of secondary college Mark moved to Box Hill Senior Secondary which offered a highly specialised course in Graphic Design and the Arts.
Brought up in a Baptist family, Mark attended Wattle Park Chapel and became a Christian in his early teenage years.
As Mark’s photography skills progressed, so did his business and he soon changed the name to ‘Mark Gray Fine Art Landscape Photography’.
After experiencing significant sales growth for the following 3 years, he finally made the break from his day job as a web manager and became a professional landscape photographer.
Mark Gray was born in Melbourne, Victoria on February 20th, 1981 to parents with Latvian, English and Irish heritage.During the early stages of their relationship they both discovered a love of travelling, often leaving Melbourne to spend long weekends in bed and breakfasts at Apollo Bay or The Grampians.It was during one of these trips to Apollo Bay that Mark first witnessed a truly incredible sunrise and his love affair with landscape photography began.During Mark’s mid-late teenage years his artistic side began to show, spending many hours painting graffiti art along railway lines and any blank walls he could find.
Unfortunately, graffiti artists were viewed as criminals during this time and he had many run-ins with the law.While still working full-time as a web designer and with only a handful of prints in his portfolio, he established his first photography business ‘Australian Landscapes’ and setup a website using his existing web skills.
