Back To Top

A new addition to the I Love Wednesday family


 

I’ve been very fortunate over the last couple of months, flying to the US for WPPI and meeting so many wonderful photographers from all over the world has been one of the most eye-opening experiences for me. I haven’t really blogged about it yet because I think in a way, I was still in shock from it all. For those of you that don’t know, I entered the WPPI Print and Album competition this year. I had hoped to receive some epic feedback on my work, I’ve heard that just the feedback is well worth the entry fee…and look, to be perfectly honest, the competition is TOUGH, and while I had hoped to win something, I didn’t quite expect to win awards in three different categories; that was more of a dream than anything else, and after finding out, I sort of had to pinch myself to make sure that it was actually reality. Two of my photos won Accolades of Excellence in the Premier and Wedding Photojournalism categories and the album that I entered, from Felicity and Scott’s wedding, was also awarded an Accolade of Excellence.

Then … happy dances ensued.

On that note, I’d like to share with you the award winning album and the new addition to the I Love Wednesdays range, the flushmount album. For me, the wedding day is all about telling the story of the day, and with that, it all comes done to the book. These are award winning albums in their own right and made to last for generations. and that’s what it’s all about, passing on memories and savouring them.

Back from the APPAs | Award Winning Sydney Photography


I got back to Sydney last night from 5 days of photography goodness. I’m still catching up on all my emails at the moment and I promise I will reply to everyone today :)

This is my first year as an Emerging Member of the AIPP (Australia Institute of Professional Photography) and meeting so many wonderful people and seeing the fantastic quality of work produced from all around Australia was just incredible. There really are an awful lot of talented people here.

I missed the scoring of my print and was just running into the judging area as it was turning around. I had to ask 4 people before one of them told me it got a Silver Award and here it is.

Australian Professional Photography Awards - Silver Award Winner

To say I’m excited is probably a bit of an understatement and I can’t wait to see what next year brings.


AWARDS


My grandmother left this very sweet message on my mobile last night. “Hi chook, it’s grandma, I just wanted to congratulate you on winning your Silver Award, even though I’m not sure exactly what it is for.” It was actually one of the many calls I received from my very proud, yet slightly confused family. They were all so happy I won an award, but weren’t quite sure what it was. I was too nervous to tell them that I’d entered in my images, so when they found out it was all rather a jumble of information, but they were all proud none the less.

That being said, I won my first Silver Award at the NSW AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) Awards that were held over the weekend. I loved seeing work from other incredibly talented photographers in NSW and I can’t wait for the National Awards in Melbourne and seeing work from all over Australia.

This is my Silver winning print from the Pocahontas shoot.
