2017 ACT AIPP Epson Professional Photographer of the Year
I won this by being the
2017 ACT AIPP Documentary Photographer of the Year
I was also fortunate to be a joint winner of the ACT AIPP Highest Scoring Print, an honour shared with fellow photographer Kelly Tunney.
Before I go on I would just like to say congratulations to all the other category winners especially fellow Queanbeyan-ite Lib Ferreira of LibCreative who only started out as a mentoree 4 years ago and has gone from strength to strength with her photography!
I feel very surprised and grateful for this win! I am really quite shocked. I love the fact that the Documentary category won, which requires zero photoshop!
I am also very happy that I created an artwork from all the many WW2 veterans I photographed and that it provoked a very emotional reaction whilst being judged!
Here are my winning images and their captions:
