The judging for the 2013 Queensland Professional Photography Awards took place this weekend. This is my second year entering the awards in the Emerging Photographer category.
I’m pleased to say that judging resulted in four awards for me, two Silvers, and two Silvers with Distinction! And here they are. Hope you enjoy them.
ANZAC – Silver with Distinction (Illustrative)
This is a composite of 100 exposures of Brisbane’s ANZAC memorial, taken at different times on one day. I shot this as part of my Project 365 last year, so it was important to shoot, edit and post on one day!
By all accounts this one inspired a lot of discussion (and disagreement!) with the judges in the Illustrative category on Saturday. Very pleased that the spirited discussion resulted in a Silver with Distinction!
Steve – Silver with Distinction (Portrait)
Steve Mackay is a very talented singer, songwriter and performer, appearing recently on X-Factor with his band ParisLane. He is a crazy good pianist; I like to think I know a few things on the piano, but he’s unbelievable. Steve isn’t an angry man as far as I can tell, but he sure dialed up the intensity for this portrait.
Amy – Silver award (Portrait)
This portrait of Amy is the second Silver award winner for the 2013 QPPAs. While shooting promotional photos for ImproMafia’s production of the 2012 Theatresports Grand Championships, I took a few moments to work with the stunning Amy to make this image.
