Queensland Epson Professional Photography Awards 2017
Success at the Queensland Awards
I’m not sure how, but when it came time for the Queensland Epson Professional Photography Awards, I had an abundance of images.
I had so many images I had enough to enter two categories this year. So I did, I entered both the Newborn and Family categories, with one goal in mind. I was chasing the illusive Category Winner, I want nothing more than to be named Family or Newborn Photographer of the year.
You are allowed to enter 4 images into each category. So I chose the best 8 images I could find from the past years work and began the process of changing them from client work, into pieces of art.
In the newborn category, I entered the above images, two of which were judged a Silver award and a Silver with Distinction. The other two where scored in the Professional Practice range.
In the family category, I faired a little better with each of my entries scoring either a Silver award or a Silver with Distinction.
I have been attending the Queensland Epson Professional Photography Awards since 2014, and each year I go to celebrate the achievements of others, with a little hope for my own achievements.
This year I was honoured to be named a Finalist for not only the Newborn Photographer of the Year, but also the Family Photographer of the Year. Alas, the title was awarded to two other magnificently talented photographers and I am still chasing the title. One day it will happen, today is just not that day.
