AIPP State Awards [Canberra Childrens Photographer]

For those of you that have not heard of the AIPP, it stands for the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers.  The AIPP is Australia’s leading membership body for the photography community.  Supporting professional photographers at all stages of their careers and enabling them to become accredited to the photographic organisation that is the AIPP.  If you wish to find out more about the AIPP, please go here.

Every year, the AIPP runs the Photographer of the Year Awards in each State, which is then followed by the National Awards know the APPAs (or the Australian Professional Photography Awards) in May.  Each year for the past three years now, I have made the journey up to Sydney to watch the NSW/ACT awards that were judged over the last couple of days.

Sometimes I wonder why I put myself through this agony, as it is a gruelling process from start to finish.  From the weeks of trying to decide just what images to enter, to refining these images, to the printing and mounting and then finally, putting your work out there to be critiqued by 5 of the top photographers in Australia, in full view of the rest of your colleagues State and Australia wide.   Why do I do it?  Ahem, I am crazy I think.  The reason I do this, is because I firmly believe that it is the only way for me to improve.  And now, as I have watched my journey from starting as an emerging photographer within the AIPP, to becoming a fully accredited photographer just over a year ago, to becoming a multi-award winning photographer, in the short time-frame of 3 years, I can see just how much I have improved in every aspect of my work from year to year.

I am really excited to announce that I received 5 Silver Awards this year, all within the Family Category.   Here are my award winning images for the ACTNSW State level for 2012……
