What an amazing opportunity to host the Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards dinner recently in Melbourne at the magnificent Regent theatre. This was my 12th year and each year it is an incredible honor.
Anyone else feel like it seems harder and harder to keep up with the world?
Whether you are trying to stay on top of internet communications or looking
to explore every opportunity, it is becoming more and more relevant that the
real challenge in front of each of us is not finding opportunity, but rather
learning how to make the right choices. The choices that take us closer to
wherever it is we want to go?
As the NinetyDegrees5 team embarks on a new project, the momentum from the Pilbara Project continues to roll along with an article features in Australian Geographic.

What a magic weekend for the April Masterclass. Together with Denis Glennon, it was a priveledge to share a unique experience with our Masterclass attendees in New Norcia. From the moving opening address from Dom Michael, a resident Benedictine Monk, the entertaining expose of the historic art collection as shared by Dom Chris, to the beautiful sunrise that greeted us on the Sunday morning, we were treated to a special opportunity to explore ‘Creativity’ in photography! Here are a few of my favourite images as captured over the weekend.
Thanks again to all the attendees and I look forward to sharing the next stage of the journey in the near future!
It’s time to book the workshop of a lifetime.
