While I was away on the Adobe Lightroom Adventure the Queensland Professional Photography Awards were judged.
It was a very special honour to this time not only be awarded Queensland Wedding Photographer of the Year, but to also take out Queensland Landscape Photographer of the Year – particularly as I was off shooting landscapes. For me, these two awards together symbolise how the different aspects of my photography have come together over the years. I started taking landscapes and ‘peoplescapes’, and then began photographing weddings as if they were an entirely different thing. It was only when I began to approach my weddings the same way I approached my landscapes that my “style” (which funnily enough some called ‘weddingscapes’) emerged, and I began to succeed as a photographer and really start to love shooting weddings.
To top it off, I achieved the overall Queensland Professional Photographer of the Year. More info can be found at www.qaipp.com.au
