beyond uncharted waters

Welcome to the biggest edition of Capture for the year, The Annual. Without a doubt, my favourite edition, but also one of the most challenging to compile. From almost 1,600 images submitted by student, emerging, and professional photographers from across Australia, and around the globe, the task of putting this issue together requires whittling that impressively large selection down to what you see in the following the pages. I only wish there were more pages to play with. A great deal many more pages! Nevertheless, I hope you’ll find the final selection to be an impressive and inspiring collection. In this very special edition, we also take time to look back on the year that’s been across a number of industries. What’s common across all is that photography as a professional…

editorial the year in review

Over the last year, the world of editorial photography and photojournalism has seen both some of the industry’s darkest lows and some of its most shining moments.

Outdoor advertising has been another source of riches, with digital innovations in billboards fuelling a revival in this media over the last few years. Noah Regan, creative partner at advertising agency DDB Sydney, says that he has commissioned photography across a wide variety of campaigns over the last 12 months. “The images created have been reproduced in every printed and digital platform one could probably ever imagine; from billboards to toilet talkers, from in-store animated screens to web tiles, from store-front windows to digital page takeovers,” he adds.…

wedding & portrait the year in review

Novel approaches, genuinely reconnecting with clients, and rude awakenings are among the many surprises of 2019. We are seeing the wedding and portrait industry expand horizontally – meaning two things. The first is more and more photographers entering the industry, driven in part by the boom in online resources and courses enticing people to become professionals. While a saturated marketplace is nothing new, it is now easier and cheaper than ever before to purchase a mirrorless or DSLR system and promote yourself as a photographer. The second is the booming sub-categories within our industry. From pet portraits to elopement weddings, there seems to be something for everyone to take a shot at. So, what can professionals do to navigate this developing landscape? According to Melbourne-based wedding photographer and three-time AIPP…
