Went to the South Australian AIPP Professional Photography awards dinner last night at expense of my table tennis night, and found out I had come third in the race for Student photographer of the year. Huzzah. No announcement, or prize though.. NEXT YEAR!
Especially since I'm apparently going to be mentored next year by David Evans [link]
who became, not just landscape photographer of the year, but illustrative as well, and took out the overall professional photographer of the year award. So looking forward to that.
My tutor was quite happy that she won portrait photographer of the year. She's been doing what she does for 20 years, and she had never won a gold award before, let alone a gold distinction and a category photographer of the year award
So she was pretty happy. Another student of hers, Ross Daly, who happens to be the model in my recent photo [link]
won Student photographer of the year.
But right now I really need to do some homework..
