Australia's identity

A few exciting things happened in the last month or so on the photography front. I was chosen as one of 22 finalists in the Art and About Australian Life prize. This was a huge thing for me, my first big recognition as a photographer! I unfortunately did not take out the big prize, but the winner Jon Lewis' photo of the barber in Newtown is a fabulous one and so very well deserved.

I was then contacted by ABC International who wanted to feature me and my photography. I got to be interviewed by the lovely Lisa Clarke and photographed (now I know how it feels to be the subject of photos!).

Motherhood

One of my friends whom I have known for over a decade just became a mother. To her and all mothers everywhere, you're amazing. Happy Mother's Day.

Portraiture workshop

Last Saturday, I spent a great day with some Fairfax photographers learning about portraiture and sharing ideas. It was really helpful to see how professionals approach their briefs and their subjects, and to meet other Clique members as well!

Here are a few of my top shots from the day.
