I'm pleased to report that I scored well in the 2012 NSW/ACT AIPP Epson Professional Photographer of the Year Awards held in Sydney last night. These awards recognise photographic excellence in NSW and the ACT by professional and student photographers. The awards celebrate and recognise the talent of Canberra’s local photographers and are the highlight of the industry’s calendar. I was fortunate to be awarded two prestigious Gold awards — a Gold distinction for my image Taxiing homeand a Gold award for my image One tree hotel. I also received three Silver Distinction awards and a Silver award. I was also runner up 2012 Epson AIPP ACT landscape photographer of the year and runner up 2012 Epson AIPP ACT creative photographer of the year.
