In November 2021 I submitted 5 photos to the Wildlife Category of the prestigious Australian Photography Awards. I was absolutely over-the-moon to be advised that two of my photos, namely Midnight Manta and Salty Skull, had made the shortlist.
Given the calibre of photos I was shortlisted alongside I was more than happy with the outcome. But a few weeks later, when the winners were announced, I was ecstatic to have gone one better and been named as one of 20 finalists!
To make that cut among so many incredible photographers means a lot and I'm so thankful for the support of my friends, family, local community and, of course, those that follow me and show so much love on social media.
Thanks for all the love, I always appreciate it!
