I was suprised and honoured to be featured in this years Annual Capture Magazine along side some of the best photographers in the business.
The photo is of a pontoon in Pemberton and was taken with an old medium format film camera.
Presently it is printed and on display at Hybla (Middleton Beach, Albany) and looks really beautiful on the fine-art textured paper specifically selected for this image. You can contact me to purchase it or click the image below.
For those of you who missed having a look at my exhibition 'Stirlings - Above and Beyond', you can still have a look at the prints at the following new venues;
1. Hybla - Hybla is the latest addition to high quality restaurants in Middleton Beach. It has amazing views over Ellen Cove and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
2. Make a Scene - Is an artist collective pop-up shop open for until December 30 2014 run by a group of very talented local artists. It is situated on Proudlove Pde in Albany (next to the IGA at the bottom of York St)
For the past 12 months I have been photographing the Stirling Ranges National Park and surrounds. The project connected me back to memories of my childhood growing up in the area.
Throughout the project, I was lucky enough to have some amazing mentoring by Tony Hewitt, and also formed a great relationship with Paul Jarvis from Perth Pro Lab who was very generous with his time and feedback. Thanks Tony and Paul for your support.
Everyone is welcome to come for a drink at the Vancouver Arts Centre in Albany on the 5th Oct at 4pm. See you there!
This year I became a full member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography and entered both the WAPPAs and the APPAs, and was pretty happy with my scores.
Results for the APPAs can be seen below;
At the WAPPA's (slightly easier judging, supposably) I scored 2 x Silver Awards and 1 x Silver Distinction.
On Sunday March 9, Angelo St in South Perth will be blocked off for the Fiesta 2014 Marketplace. I will have a small exhibition in the alley way next to Halo Cafe.

I recently entered into a competition called The Youngblood Editions 2013 run by The Queensland Centre of Photography.
It was an opportunity to have my Portrait of Cars project published as a photobook and displayed as an exhibition and displayed at the The Edmund Pearce Gallery in Melbourne.
