Pretty happy to announce that I was again a finalist for NZIPP New Zealand Professional Photographer of the Year again along side Katherine Williams of Christchurch and Tony Carter of New Plymouth who took out the title this year. I was also the winner of two categories; Open Portrait and Illustrative. My business partner at the gallery in Napier also won NZIPP New Zealand Wildlife Photographer of the Year, so a big win for Hawke's Bay photographers.
