Pleased to be a Finalist and Semi Finalist again at this year’s HeadOn Photo Festival in Sydney, launching May 4th.

I was pleased that one of my portraits of Dr.Rodney Symes has been chosen as a finalist in this years Percival Photographic Portrait Prize. I approached Dr.Symes as a portrait subject after reading an article about his work with the ‘Dying With Dignity’ campaign. He has been a leading advocate in getting recent legislative laws changed concerning the issues around assisted dying.

I’m also very pleased to be a finalist in the Inaugural Martin Kantor Portrait Prize, which is honoring Australians that have made a significant contribution to Australian society. It runs in conjunction with the Ballarat Photo Bienale this year, and features a commission I shot of the exceptional Dr.Genivieve Goulding.

I was once again very pleased and honored to be a Finalist in this years National Portrait Prize in Canberra. It is the 10th anniversary of the Portrait Prize, and it was a great night put on by the National Portrait Gallery. Thank you to all those who helped put together such a fantastic evening.

Thrilled to have one of my images from the exhibition ‘NIGHT TREMORS’ chosen as a finalist in this year’s Bowness Photographic Award at the MGA. It’s getting ti be a very tough one to crack.
