2018 AIPP South Australia Epson Professional Photography Awards

At the recent 2018 AIPP South Australia Epson Professional Photography Awards I was successful in winning the title of 2018 AIPP SA Commercial Photographer of the Year with my portfolio of four images.

Here is some more detail behind each of the images.

 Qantas 737-800 'Innisfail' on departure from Adelaide Airport. I was standing around 50m from the end of the runway to capture this image as she tore straight toward me and then roared overhead. In that short time the wheels were up and she was away. Shot on a Nikon D800 for  Adelaide Airport Ltd  and processed in Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex. This image is available for purchase at my  Print Store .

 Detail of Qantas Dreamliner 'Great Southern Land'  GEnx engine  on arrival at Adelaide Airport. Fun Dreamliner fact - they can start both engines at the same time! Shot on a Nikon D800 and processed in Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex.

 NUSHIP Brisbane (III) is the second of three ships of the Hobart Class guided missile destroyers. This image was captured for the  Air Warfare Destroyer Alliance  from a helicopter as she underwent sea trials in the Gulf St Vincent. You can see that her deck is yet to be prepared for final delivery. It was a great experience directing a very large ship to undertake specific manoeuvres for the camera - the skipper was amazing, it was an incredible sight to see just how nimble a ship of this size can be! Upon commissioning into the Royal Australian Navy fleet she becomes known as HMAS Brisbane. Shot on a Nikon D800 and processed in Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex.

 Air New Zealand 787-900 Dreamliner engine detail.  I captured this for  Air New Zealand  to celebrate the inaugural Air New Zealand Dreamliner service into Adelaide. The all-black body contrasts beautifully with the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine. This aircraft has one of my favourite liveries.
