      Entering awards is not compulsory for a photographer, but I do it to challenge myself, improve my work and also raises the level of professionalism and what is expected of professionals in the industry.

      As Master photographer of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP), I enter the state and national awards every year since I joined in 2012.

      In 2018, I was invited to be a judge at the WA AIPP Epson State Photography awards. It was a fantastic experience to be on the ‘other side’ and judging an image.

      In 2018, I was honoured to be the last recipient of the prestigious John Whitfield King Award for excellence in portraiture.

      I have entered many categories over the years, with Wedding and Portrait being my specialty. I love the process of selecting images, editing and preparing them for print.

      Participating in competitions is a labour of love. I don’t do it to ‘win’, but to push myself creatively. I am inspired when I see the amazing work that other people have produced.
