2010 Nillumbik Prize
« on: June 10, 2010, 06:44:36 AM »

I  am very pleased to announce that one of my works ‘Portrait of Skipper’ has been selected and accepted to be part of the 2010 Nillumbik Prize at Montsalvat in Eltham, Melbourne. Although portraiture is not my ‘bread and butter’, Montsalvat is one of my favourite places in Australia for photography (I frequently go there to photograph my kids Julian and Alicia or sometimes just for a coffee at the small cafe) and when I came across this gentlemen in the grounds I just knew I had to photograph him – thankfully he kindly obliged. I am very pleased with this photograph and very humbled to have it accepted into the gallery as part of the 2010 Nillumbik Prize. This work will be on display at Montsalvat from the 22nd of June this year.[attachment=22527:_74X7042...Edit2009.jpg]

Good stuff Josh, congratulations.  I seem to remember you putting that image up on User Critiques a while back (albeit in colour and without the vignette) and I liked it very much at the time.  As I still do.

My congratulations, too. It's a wonderful portrait, reminiscent of Rembrandt.

Congratulations!

Was he posing, or did you ask for permission after taking the picture? Thanks.

THank you.

No he wasnt posing - he was sitting quietly actually listening to an ipod on a bench when I struck up a conversation and asked if I could photograph him - all I did was ask to remove the ipod and asked him to look out into the distance like he was thinking of days gone by.
