This week I had the huge honour of being named the Epson AIPP Victorian Portrait Photographer of the year for 2014 amongst amazing talent.
A huge thank you to my amazing mentor Peter Coulsen I could never thank you enough for your support and for sharing your talent and skills with me over the last 3 years. Also to Mercury Megaloudis who has been a massive influence and support for my business, and to my bestie of besties makeup artist Ms Saphire Gaskas, friend and supporter, I find it hard to express what these people mean to me.
And before I roll out the images which were awarded Gold Awards at last weeks judging, I would also like to make a special mention to Vicious models and to Andrea de Deugd hair and to Lizzie Sharp makeup, thankyou so much, and all that have supported that I didn't mention. Also to the award sponsor Kayell thank you. I have so much more to write about my work, it is so much than work, it is a personal journey and one I hope you enjoy these images much as I have enjoyed creating them.
