Photographer of the Year 2015 Winners

Every year we run an internal photography competition for our staff members, with the overall winner taking the title of ‘Photographer of the Year’ and the prestigious Joshua Shearer award.

This year was one of the toughest years we have ever had to judge and we thank each and every entry we received. There is definitely a reason we call ourselves the “photographic specialists” and we think you will see why with these winning shots from this year’s competition. There was 6 categories our staff could enter in, with the winners of each, going into the running to win the title of the ‘Photographer of the Year’. A huge congratulations to John Ralph from John Ralph’s Camera House in Erina for taking out this years top prize. Now here are the winners…
