NZ Professional Nature Photographer of the Year

I am totally thrilled to announce my portfolio of printed images entered into the 2021 NZIPP Nikon Iris Awards, has given me the title of 2021 Nature Photographer of the Year! The Nature Category is sponsored by NZIPP and I am so very thankful to have wonderful support from our sponsors!

The 2021 Nikon Iris awards were hosted in Nelson, and is an intense, nerve wracking time for all professional photographers entering! Our hearts and souls are put out there for the live judging for 3 days, involving 5 judges at a time judging our work.  All our work has stringent rules that are to be adhered to, and its a nail biting time for all!  More photos to come, albeit just from my cellphone of the Gala dinner where the winners of the categories are announced!

Righto, off to buy some bubbles!
