A Honiton photographer is beginning to have his work recognised on a national scale after his photographs was featured in an arts magazine.

Mark Tipping, 48, has had several photographs featured in the August 2016 edition of Black+White Photography magazine, which provides a platform for creative photographers working within the monochrome aesthetic.

Mark says he draws his inspiration for his images from the scenery of East Devon, including Honiton and Exmouth.

When asked how he would like to progress with his photography, Mark said: “At the moment, it’s a hobby, but I would like to take it further and turn it into a career.

“I am not sure what the next step is as to regards to what photos I take. It would be good to do a book and exhibitions.”

Mark is focussing taking photos on his iPhone, breaking away from the traditional use of the digital DSLR camera.

He says a lot of his photos are taken for the artistic aspect - his rough, gritty editing style casts a new light on the usually tourist-like scene he captures.

“I am not into making pictures popular,” he added. “I like to focus more on the art more than the image itself.”
