Award Winning Photographs
Winning awards is an important process in my professional development as it provides me and my customers positive confirmation of my creative and technical skills. It is especially significant to win medals in National competitions where five-six highly proficient and renown judges have to agree that an image has an ‘X factor’ over other excellent photos. I am an active member of the North Shore Photographic Society where I present my images on a regular basis. In 2010 I won the bronze medal in the Architecture section of the North Shore National Salon of Photography with the image ‘Britomart One’. In 2011 I won a silver medal in the set subject Power with the image ‘The Tower’. This is also when I joined New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography [NZIPP] to win five bronze in the prestigious nzipp Iris Professional Photography Awards 2011. These images demonstrate high standard of professional practice, craft and skill and are important recognition by my fellow photographers.
In 2012 I won twelve awards with North Shore National Salon in the categories Open Color, Open Monochrome, The Family of Man, Abstract and Urban Environment (the Bronze medals were awarded to the images: ‘Twins in Boots’ and ‘Kenwood’). This year I also won four Bronze and three Silver awards from nzipp and have been awarded the distinction of Associate as well as being accredited as a Qualified Portrait Photographer by NZIPP.
