Mashable contacted me a few days ago to ask if the image above could be used in an article on the A to Z of iPhotography and I was more than happy to oblige. The article pulls together an image of each letter of the alphabet as taken by iPhone users and uploaded to Flickr. Check the article in full and click through to find me at ‘S’.

Head On Images

I’ve entered the two images above and one below into the 2011 Head On Portrait Prize. If you don’t know what Head On is all about, it started off as a an independent national photographic portrait competition and has morphed into a massive photography festival of which the portrait prize is just a part. 40 finalists are selected from thousands of entries, I should find out in early April if I’ve made it so wish me luck!

I’m currently exhibiting at the Bears Artspace at the Monstrosity Gallery, 93 Bourke St, Woollomolloo, Sydney. The Artspace is part of the Bear Essentials festival run by Harbour City Bears alongside the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival.

After a very busy and successful opening on Monday 21st Februrary I’ve already sold two images which is pretty exciting. The exhibition features 15 emerging artists working in various media. Pictured above is one of the images I have on display, all items are for sale and the exhibition runs until 6pm on Wednesday 2nd March.

365:2010 – June Highlights and the big 200

In Uncategorized by pauldwade / July 21, 2010 / 0 Comments

The 365:2010 project hit the big 200 milestone on Monday 19th July. Unfortunately the event completely passed me by as it was a working day and I didn’t even notice! The next biggie is 300 which falls on October 27th, I’ll try and remember that one.

So here are my highlights from all the images taken in June. Remember if you want to see more of 365:2010 you can visit the set on Flickr, if you have a Facebook account you can become a fan and get the latest photo posted daily to your news feed.

EOS Festival of Photography

In Uncategorized by pauldwade / July 6, 2010 / 0 Comments

Over the weekend I visited a couple of exhibitions which are part of Canon’s EOS Festival of Photography currently running in Sydney. Firstly, ‘Photos 1440‘ is an exhibition of images taken by Sydney Morning Herald photographers. 1440 represents the number of minutes in a day, though I’m pretty certain there aren’t that many images on display. A slideshow with a selection of images can be seen on the SMH site. Here’s one of my favourite images, taken by Dominic Postiglione:

Secondly was the ‘World Press Photo 2010‘, an exhibition I visit every year. It celebrates the best in photojournalism from around the world and features an amazing selection of images, some confronting. If you can’t make it to a city holding the exhibition you can view all the winners on the WPP site. Both exhibitions are on at the State Library of NSW with Photos1440 running until August 1st, and WPP10 finishing on July 25th. Here’s one of my favourites from the WPP, an amazing capture of a Stealth Bomber doing a flyover at the 95th Rose Bowl game, by Mark Holtzman:

Citrusy Fresh!

Citrus Orange 2

Over a dull, cloudy and occasionally rainy weekend I setup a little home project to take some close-up macro shots of citrus fruit in soda water. That may sound a little strange but the bright colours and bubbles can make for some interesting images:
