What a night. Last night, at a gala awards dinner in Melbourne, the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) awarded me the title ‘Master of Photography’. This is one of the highest accolades from the AIPP, and it is great to have been placed amongst an elite chapter of Australia’s top professional photographers. Becoming a Master of Photography can take several years and is an honour few Australian photographers achieve and I'm thrilled to join the club.

This latest award follows the success of my landscape photography over the last five years at the Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography awards. Each year, peers of the industry judge the country’s premier photographers, with the Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards offering the most sought-after accolades in Australian professional photography. The standard of photography continues to rise each year due to the fierce competition, with the awards representing the pinnacle of photographic excellence in Australian professional photography (and some of the best in the world). To continue to be awarded at this level and recieve the award of Master of Photography is truly an honour to be recognised by the photography profession for my landscape photography.
