2017 AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards

This weekend just passed saw the annual AIPP APPAs (for those who don’t know – the Australian Professional Photography Awards are the biggest event in the photography industry calendar)

Every year I enter and push myself to create works outside the box. Creative pieces I maybe wouldn’t otherwise create.
The awards always give me this push and even with the stress and nail biting, Always happy for that.

Each APPA I grow and learn as a photographic artist. I am challenged, rubbed raw and ready to go again for the next year. I’m truly inspired by all the amazing works which are entered and proud to be an AIPP member and part of these awards.

This year I entered 4 works again in Analogue and Historical Process and came away with 3 Silver Awards. I am very happy!
I also entered a Photographic Book this year – a hand bound cyanotype one off artist book. Although my Book did not score an award, it provoked interesting discussion and debate with the judges. It challenged what is a book and pushed ideas further – for that I am extremely happy!!!

Congratulations to all the category winners – the works you have created blow me away! To all the finalists and every one awards – thanks for entering. Seeing all the works you make is part of what keeps me inspired and coming back for more each year!!!

Thanks to the AIPP – such a fantastic family to be a part of!!!

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
