Once again, National Geographic has singled out one of my photographs for special exposure through their ‘Your shot’ program for non-National Geographic photographers to submit shots to the prestegeous organisation in order to generate a bit of exposure. For the third time my photograph of the lighthouse at Airey’s Inlet, south of Geelong in Victoria has been graced with an ‘editor’s favourite’ award.
This particular image has been the most successful image of my career, winning one of only two gold awards in the Australian national AIPP photography award’s science category for 2010, It has also won 4th place in the (then) International Aperture award’s science category, now Loupe awards. I only wish I have more time and opportunity to get out there and shoot these type of subjects more often.
