Well, it’s a year on after I received the big gong. This time last year I was celebrating my award of 2014 Australian Professional Commercial Photographer of the Year.
It was a real honour to be awarded the 2014 Australian Professional Commercial Photographer of the Year title at the Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPA’s). The icing in the cake is that I was voted to receive this by some very esteemed senior judges, many of whom have had long and illustrious careers in professional photography.
The portfolio of images I entered into the awards were a mix of a corporate portrait and industrial warehouse sites. It was important for me to enter these two different types of images into the commercial category as they represent the majority of my work these days. To enter the commercial category, the images must have been commissioned by a client. So they are real working images not just work photographed for the awards.
The awards are just about here for this year and I’m hoping it will be another great year.
See below for my portfolio that won me the 2014 Australian Professional Commercial Photographer of the Year.
I am really lucky in the way that I get to do what I love, every single day. Now industrial photography is far from glamourous, but it’s a part of my life that I really enjoy. I suppose there is something appealing about finding the beauty in amongst construction sites and visual mess. A lot of industrial photography is about seeing the graphic elements such as lines, shapes and textures. Not too different to architectural photography I suppose.
The images below were shot for a client based in Melbourne who were after some Sydney Industrial Photography as they have some projects going in progress in Sydney. It’s always a real compliment when I am booked for work from another state (or country) as the decision is based solely on my body of work. My client is using these images not only for their promotional use but they are also using them to update their client on the progress of the project. These were taken at two separate building projects on a warm Spring day in Western Sydney. Hope you enjoy!
