Hello everyone, first up thankyou for those of you emailing/noting me asking if I've fared well due to the recent naural disaters that have struck Australia. The Flooding of Brisbane/regional Queensland and Victoria, Cyclone Yasi, and the bushfires in Victoria. But I wish to say that I live in Adelaide, the capital city at the center, on the southern coast of Australia, and the wildest weather we get here are the odd bush fire, but there hasnt been one where I live in my lifetime. That said though, the weather has been really hot as of late, over 40 degrees most days of the last week.
Other than all that, I've started my new job as a high school photography teacher this term on a term contract, so hopefully I make a good impression and land some other work by the end. But due to that work, I am able to claim things like full accrediation with the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) on my next tax return, so that's what I've done, and I get to put an APP on the end of my name now
(Accredited Profesisonal Photographer).
For those of you interested my full name now is -
Steven P Duncan Mteach BA DipCIT APP
Bit of a mouthfull ay?
Those of you familiar with the PDN magazine, and Photographer's Forum magazine - I have been selected as a finalist in both these magazine's student photography awards for 2010, so that would be awesome if I won them
Also a finalist in the Clickit 2010 Photo essay category - a contest in the UK, also awesome if I can win
