It means the world to have such a personal image selected as the winner of the 2019 National Portrait Prize! Thank you to @portraitau & @canonaustralia for your generous support of portraiture in Australia. Thank you to the jury & all the kind words and support received in person and from afar. I’ll be dancing on these clouds a while yet. ♥️
Greta in her kitchen, 36 weeks // Pregnancy carried my sister into a new chapter of her life, and she welcomed it warmly. Effortlessly. Ready for things to change. We’d spent much of our late twenties debating the ‘right time’, if there was even such a thing, but she'd found it. This portrait is an attempt to depict the tranquillity in Greta's transition into motherhood and her trust in the future.
Printed by the wonderful @peter_hatzipavlis at The Print Shop @pscmelb & framed by the lovely Maurizio at Dean’s Picture Framers in Thornbury.
The exhibition of all the amazing finalists opens today, Saturday 23 Feb and will travel to several galleries in Australia over the coming year. Go see! #nppp2019

Congrats to Paul Marcellini for winning the fifth @ilpoty International Landscape Photograph of the Year (awarded for a single image) from nearly 3000 entries from 863 photographers, with this striking image. “I shoot raw and start working on my files in Adobe Camera Raw before moving into Photoshop. I use the tilt- shift lenses to make nearly seamless stitches and after putting together the panoramas, I typically do colour and contrast work to lead the eye to the centres of interest, but there’s not much more done after that. I always try to minimise the post-processing since large prints are the goal." To see more of the winning images visit

"Together Capa and Taro changed their names, took pictures on the front lines of the Spanish Civil War, and revolutionized the art of war photography. If there was ever an iconic couple in the history of photography, they would be it. Though Capa became the better known of the two and arguably the most famous war photographer of the 20th century, Taro was not one to take a backseat to her male partner. While they remained together, Taro refused Capa’s marriage proposals, choosing her work over that of a wife." Found at Flavor Wire

This THURSDAY is the last day to enter the Capture Australiasia's Top Emerging Photographers Awards, with $26,000 in cash + prizes. Winners and Runners Up are also showcased in the May/June 2019 issue of @capture.mag. 📸 @brihammond

We like the way you think @chloeferres! Tis not surprising then that you’ve been a two-time finalist in the @anzphotobookaward 🙌

It was a pleasure to print and bind this heartrending book for @annamariaantoinette D’Addario of the @luminacollective in late 2018. 'Farewell Angelina' is an autobiographical poetic exploration of grief, following the violent loss of Anna's sister in 2015.
The effort involved in editing, sequencing and selecting materials was phenomenal, and its custom production was equally intensive. The pages were inkjet printed onto Japanese Mulberry Kozo handmade paper, bound into sections, concertina pages, with gatefolds, vellum paper inserts, and a hand sewn booklet. ‘Farewell Angelina’ was recently acquired by the @nationallibraryaus photo artist book collection. To acquire a copy contact Anna. View an adaptation at@artgalbal until 10 March.

Those eyes have seen more than most! Another shortlist for the @portraitau National Photographic Portrait Prize - a collaboration between (primarily) commercial Australian photographer @sharsent + documentary photographer and prolific photobook creator @stephenmdupont.

Stephen won the @anzphotobookaward in 2012 + 2015, and is one of a few Australian photographers who has tried all publishing models - with major trade publishers, international indy art book publishers, in collective editions + self publishing.
He has published 1000s of digitally-printed books that sell for affordable prices with a low margin, as well as only a few inkjet printed limited editions that sell for thousands of dollars with a significant margin. Both are equally valid and determined by the purpose of the book (and we imagine) the need for revenue to fund the next project.
As a result, Stephen has established a network of international collectors who appreciate his work and are keen to hear about his new publications, so his photo books are now preserved in the @nationallibraryaus, @libraryof_congress + @yalepeabodymuseum.

Good luck gents! #photobookjousting
