At precisely this time last week I was experiencing a rather eclectic mix of exhaustion, elation, excitement and nervousness. Day one of the 2015 AIPP NSW/ACT Epson Professional Photography Awards was completed, and as the NSW President of the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) I found myself in the interesting position of being an organiser, entrant, panel chair and judge!

This was my best result to date at the state's most prestigious professional photography competition, but it wasn't over yet.Read More

As wedding photographers we naturally love to travel and every Aussie winter we look forward to a vacation to explore somewhere new. This year we were exceptionally excited for our six week European adventure. This long break, which had been months in the planning, would take us through eight cities in five countries and provide the perfect way to relax and recharge in warmer climates after a busy wedding season.

Those reasons alone justified our trip but we returned in absolute disbelief at exactly how much happened in just six weeks.Read More
