Very pleased to be selected again as a Finalist in the 2020 National Photographic Portrait Prize in Canberra. Images will be revealed at the National Gallery exhibition on Friday, March 13th.

My portrait of the artist Stephen Cummings has been selected as a finalist in the Martin Kantor Portrait Award, which runs in conjunction with the upcoming BIFB during August. I’m loving that a darkroom silver gelatin print has been chosen, and that it’s a pic of one of my favorite musicians.

OLIVE COTTON AWARD 2019

June 26, 2019

Pleased to be a Finalist again in this years Olive Cotton Award at the Tweed Regional Gallery in NSW. with my diptych portrait of Dr.Rodney Syme. It’s always a great event, and I look forward to seeing the entire exhibition hung next month.

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.
