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.

As often requested lately. I was asked to create a suite of corporate photography to compliment the new website of Hunters Hill Medical Practice. Their brief was concise and right up my alley, the only problem was making sure all the Doctors were available at the one time for their corporate portraits. Luckily it wasn’t up to me!
We scheduled the time to suit when a majority of the Doctors would be in, and the rest were available which happened to fall when the practice was closed. Being careful not to show any patients in the images, I photographed the staff first and then shot the remaining interior and exterior images. I returned about a week later early one morning to shoot a few more images that worked best with it being daylight.
They have a great team of people and top class facilities, not your average GP that’s for sure! If you live in the Hunters Hill area, give them a call when you next need a check up.
Corporate Photography, for me, typically includes portraits and industrial photography. On occasions my corporate clients call upon me to capture events as part of their corporate image library. I was commissioned to photograph some the opening of the Aldi store at Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre, in Drummoyne. The deadline was tight as for PR and press purposes my client required almost immediately following the event. These images were sent out to various media outlets as well and used across social media platforms. It was a beautiful Sydney morning with the attendance VIP’s Mayor of the City of Canada Bay, Angelo Tsirekas, Centre Manager David Ashton and Abacus Property Group‘s National Asset Manager Gerard McSpadden. It started with some images of the crowd queuing to enter the store followed by the official ceremony and cutting of the ribbon. Not long after this the rush of customers down the travelator to shop shop shop! They had a great deal on tv’s which it seems every second customer had one on their trolley.
