This image of a concert being held at Old Government House (1862) was a finalist in the Open House Brisbane photography competition 2017. Open House is a worldwide event that celebrates good design in both heritage and modern architecture. It's one of my favourite events of the year as it opens doors to many spaces that are not often accessible to the public.
In May 2017, my series on the "Faces of the Rodeo", observing the highs and lows of this iconic event, earned me a place in the Top 10 of the Documentary/Photojournalism section of Capture Magazine's Top Emerging Photographer awards.

FIAP Gold Medal
The FIAP Gold Medal is one of the most prestigious awards on offer in international photo salons. It was bestowed in the "Action" category of Singapore's Lion City International 2017 for this shot of a woman zipping through a transparent section of a waterslide on a cruise ship. In the spirit of Henri Cartier-Bresson's "decisive moment" it captures the essence of a fleeting moment whilst raising an ambiguity about its meaning, as encapsulated in the title, "Test Tube".
This image also won a Gold Medal in the Open Color section of the Ecological Truth salon 2017 held in Serbia, Slovenia & Bulgaria.
