2017 Australian Travel Photographer of the Year – Runners Up
It’s an absolute honour to be named the runners up in the travel category for Australian Photography’s 2017 POTY competition!
It was also a privilege to have professional photographers Nick Rains and Richard I’Anson comment and critique my work. Richard, of Lonely Planet, was one of my favourite travel photographers when I was just starting out, and still is to this day. His book Lonely Planet’s Guide to Travel Photography was invaluable to me when I first purchased my DSLR and began taking it on family trips.
My entries were a selection of some of my favourite images taken over the last year, on my travels between Asia and Europe. Each image was the culmination of hours of research, planning and exploration, to make sure I’m at the right place, at the right time of year, and right time of day.
A huge congratulations to the winners and all the other finalists!
