Awards and Achievements I have received are merely to show consistency of creativity as a photographer and artist. I enter awards to challenge and push myself, which helps keep my standards high, so you as a customer can trust you are in good hands and that you are going to get the best possible outcome for your investment.
NZIPP and PSNZ are a great platform to do this and I am incredibly grateful to them for giving me a chance to showcase my work.
If you have a story or an idea or you would love to be part of an exciting journey of discovery and artistry then give me a call so we can have a chat about it, I'm always on the lookout for ideas. I invite you to come on a journey with me, you won’t regret it. my award is your reward!
The images in this gallery are awards that I have won through the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers annual Iris awards and New Zealand National Exhibition. They range from Bronzes through to Silver Distinction. I think it’s incredibly important as a photographer to be entering these awards as they push my creativity further and show the public that I am keeping my standards high. I am hugely grateful to NZIPP and PSNZ for running these awards annually and giving photographers a chance to showcase their talent.
