I’m happy to be able to announce that my pet photography image of Flynn the Chocolate Labrador which I entered into the annual ASWPP Photography Awards has won in the Pets – New Talent category!

The PHOTOGRAPHY EXCELLENCE AWARDS 2012 aim is to encourage and motivate the photography industry, and to promote professional photography to the general public.

This is my first big win since starting out in Pet Photography, it feels really great to be able to achieve this and have my work acknowledged within the professional photographic industry.  I’m hoping there will be many more to come my way, as now I am very motivated to keep entering competitions and better myself and my photography.  I only wish there were more competitions out there open to NZ and Australia, specifically relating to pet photography, for professionals to enter and gain recognition.  I’m still crossing my fingers that one day the AIPP and NZIPP will open a category for pets in their professional awards.
