Profession Photography, State Awards- AIPP.

Aipp awards. State awards nsw.

Back at the end of April, I spent the three days working at the AIPP Epson NSW/ACT state professional photographer awards in Canberra. This is a volunteer role I take on – not only the awards but the role of NSW president. I have to say – I love it. Being able to work with so many members, help, encourage and bring together community – that’s what’s it’s all about. I worked my butt off over the weekend along with countless other members and we do it because we love it. We believe in members and the AIPP. We share a love for our industry.

So thank you – to every single member who entered, helped, participated, volunteered, celebrated, cried, encouraged, laughed, shared, participated, helped, encouraged, inspired, judged, print handled, helped, bought me a drink, and really anyone who shares this incredible community of ours. I was filled the entire time with this immense gratitude to all members and everyone AIPP and our family. We have something amazing and not everyone gets this – I am extremely grateful to you all. I’m one lucky gal!!! Thank you.

Oh, and I was lucky enough to walk away with a silver distinction for my entry efforts and I had my first proper go at judging this year. That was scarier than waiting for my own scores but I learned an incredible amount and I was able to really help some members earn the awards I believed they deserved. I judge on the documentary category, which is a category I feel very strongly about. The winner for NSW turned out to be a member who needed my help last minute to borrow a print case and get her entries in on time! I am so happy for her and so happy I was able to help get her entries in! Even happier I was able to judge them and I didn’t even know that was her category until she won!!!! It really does give me a warm glow being an AIPP member and especially working on Council and at Awards! I can’t wait for APPA now in August for nationals and NSW again (back in Sydney!) for 2019!!!

Danielle was an absolute delight to work with and the images speak for themselves. She shot in a natural, casual way (exactly what we wanted). My guests barely knew she was there. Such a pro!

I wouldn’t chose anyone but Natural Lights Photography for my photos. I think the results speak for themselves but they make the whole experience fun and easy going with no awquardness about being in front of the camera. There dedication to the art and work is admirable and definitely something you don’t see I everyone. Weather it is family portraits, wedding portraits or anything in-between. I can’t recommend them enough. Awesome people and awesome photographers!

Natural Lights photography recently covered our wedding. From start to finish they were complete professionals. The direction, the ability to capture the right moments and there friendly nature made the whole experience unforgettable. We knew the prints would be amazing but we were still blown away with the results. Couldn’t recommend more highly! We’re are so happy we chose them!

The Natural Lights Photography team are highly talented photographers with great energy and a real creative flare. They have photographed both my pre wedding shoot and wedding, my photos are incredible and I would highly recommend them as they are a pleasure to work with and they make the whole Experience enjoyable. My husband and I loved having them shoot for us and I look forward to using Natural Light’s plenty in the future

In 2011 Danielle photographed my cousins wedding and the pictures were amazing! Last week she photographed my 8 week daughter. She had a hard morning with my squirming VERY awake and "not having anything to do with it" baby and the pictures are incredible! If you're looking for a great photographer, Danielle is your lady! Thankyou so much!
