I was so happy (not to mention surprised!) to receive two silvers in the categories I entered in the Kodak Gold Awards this year! It was my first time entering a New Zealand competition, but like many photographers my connection to Kodak goes back years and years, to the first blurry photos taken off film in a homemade darkroom. It’s great they sponsor an award series like this and I liked the idea of being a part of it.
I received awards for a wedding photo of Danielle and Johnny, shown below, and of Leah who were all as excited about photography as I am. I am hugely thankful to them (as I am to everyone I have the privilege of taking photos of) and, really if you think about it, all I did was point the camera.
