Marcus Thomson is a Melbourne-based photographer specialising in environmental portraiture.
After shooting across regional and rural Australia for the National Australia Bank’s 2009 agribusiness calendar, Marcus has been commissioned again to capture images for the bank’s 2010 project. From Western Australia to Tasmania, Marcus is currently capturing portraits of the ‘people behind the business’, and the landscapes in which they work.
Marcus’s diverse client base includes Nikon (Japan), Greyhounds Victoria, and a variety of vineyards in rural Victoria.
Now showing at the Ararat Regional Gallery alongside the Albert Tucker exhibition is Marcus’s, Vantage Point: The Shapes and Colours of Movement. A collection of aerial images, his work is a bird’s eye view of the Australian landscape. The images explore the shared patterns, colours and textures of both the constructed and the natural environment.
