What an honour to be named 2019 NSW Illustrative Photographer of the Year at the New South Wales Professional Photography Awards sponsored by Epson last week. Finalists for this category were Naomi Reiter and Charles McKean, both superb photographers.
Below are my four images from the winning portfolio, as well as some images of the awards evening. Thank you to the sponsors, the judges, the volunteers, the council and so many others that make these awards happen.
A Little Bit About these Awards…These professional photography awards were introduced in 1976 and have grown from strength to strength. Along with the National Awards, these are the largest awards for professional print photography in Australia. It is the only professional photography awards that require physical prints to be submitted for judging. While many images look good on an instagram sized screen, printing is another game entirely. The Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) is the only photographic membership body.
