Travel Photographer of the Year 2015 - Highly Commended

The judging procedure for the Travel Photographer of the Year 2015 competition ‪has been concluded, entries from over 110 countries and wow, this competition is getting tougher and tougher every year!!. I am very happy to have be a finalist in one of the categories with a shot taken in Spain. I am also stoked that the image received a highly commended award.

Definitely one of my favorites to enter. Have a look at the winners galleries, amazing work… and congrats to the winning images and to Marsel van Oosten for winning the overall prize.

| | Paine Grande, Patagonia

Paine Grande, Patagonia

This is an image of Paine Grande in Patagonia (Chile). Paine Grande is the hightest of the peaks and less photographed than “The Horns” and “The Towers”. The image is a creation that I did for the Australian Professional Photography Awards and it went through a very interesting process to become the final image printed for the awards.

I took the photograph from a boat during a photography workshop using a Medium format Pentax 645D and a 300mm f4 lens. It was taken at midday (actually none of my entries were taken either at sunset or sunrise) and when I looked at it at home I liked it but I did not love it and I certainly didn’t think that it was an image that could do well in this competition.

APPAs 2015 - Chamonix Climbers

The APPAs (Australian Professional Photography Awards) are over and I am very happy with the results of a really tough year. I posted the four images on facebook and a lot of people have asked about this particular image and so I thought it would be good to tell the story.

I didn’t take this image from a helicopter, plane or from a drone but from a cable car in Chamonix in the French Alps. I was traveling with my family around Europe and went there by chance… Chamonix is a ski resort and I was really impressed that you can actually see one of its glaciers from the town.

Australian Professional Photography Awards 2015

Very happy with my APPA results this year. 4 more points towards achieving the Master M.Photog which I hope to get next year. I watched part of the judging and it looks like it was very tough to get gold… I am very happy because for each print the scores were very consistent and because each year I get a bit closer … I hope I can get the elusive gold next year…
Thanks so much to everyone who helped me select the images and for making comments to improve them. I always struggle. In particular I would like to thank Adam Williams, Ricardo Da Cunha, Luke Austin and Paul Hoelen of The Light Collective TLC Group for your comments and help with this. You guys rock and inspire me with your creativity.

Finland frozen trees post-processing

Diego Lopez of Wildphotoscape sent me the RAW file of a great image that he took in Lapland this winter. He wanted me to try and do my version.

Diego is one of the best nature and landscape photographers in Spain but his “policy” is to apply only minor adjustments with his RAW processing software (Capture NX) and Photoshop.

| | Image Manipulation

Image Manipulation

All arts have always involved some level of manipulation; be it painting, writing, drawing, stone carving etc., they all involve manipulation. Creation involves choices and decisions and interpretation.One hundred years ago the discussion was if photographers were artists but the discussion these days seems to be the other way round. Are artists photographers?

Very very happy that my image of a Geyser taken in the Atacama Desert (Tatio Geysers) has made the cover of the Travel Photographer of the Year book this year. This is my favorite photography competition. It was my fourth year entering and it is very special for me to have this image on the cover of a great book made of photographs selected in this competition.
