One of the fundamental tenets of being a Professional Photographer is continuing the journey of the craft through on going education. Photography is an ever changing industry and keeping on top of things is a mandatory requirement for members of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography. Continuing education can take on many forms: Gear, techniques and business education are just a few things Professional Photographers must keep up to date with to keep an informed and competitive edge.

Last month I travelled to my old stomping grounds of Townsvile to attend a workshop with the amazing Damian Cagnlia, you can see Damian's work here.

The workshop was amazing and was great to meet fellow North queensland members of the A.I.P.P.

"Nightfalls" Commended in 2017 Photographer of the Year (Professional)

I am not really one to enter competitions to be honest. I am a little cynical of the process and know people who shoot specifically for competitions. I had completely forgotten I had entered one of my photographs from the "Nightfall" series on a whim several months ago. I was pleasently surprised when this image received a commendation in the Professional Photography category.
