never give up

In order to survive and thrive as a working professional photographer in a marketplace that continues to evolve at a rapid pace, persistence, perseverance, and grit are crucial. As is being able to think creatively to solve not only the visual problems you’re presented with, but also to address the obstacles and challenges that your business constantly throws at you. Over the last few years, Tamara Dean has become one of Australia’s most celebrated photographic artists. She’s won or been a finalist in almost every portrait photographic competition of note, and in 2019, after entering each year since its inception 12 years ago, she won the $50,000 Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize. But Dean hasn’t always focussed on fine art photography. She started her career as a photojournalist before moving on to…

Dennis Rickard It was 11 years ago that Dennis Rickard’s journey in photography first began. Travelling frequently with work – Rickard has worked in the telecommunications industry for the past 34 years – he thought it would be fantastic to capture some of the amazing sights he was taking in. This interest lay mainly with landscape photography, and Rickard was fascinated with both the natural world and the man-made. While he has an affinity for black and white imagery, Rickard also captures striking images in colour. In terms of the images he enjoys shooting, Rickard says that he’s trying to convey the sense of space in his images, but at the same time keep the subject as simple as possible and showcase what nature has to offer, which will “hopefully engage the…

Winning the Moran Prize is a remarkable achievement for any photographer, but it was a very special highlight in Tamara Dean’s career. “It’s something that I had had a go at every year for the past twelve years,” she explains. “I’ve entered the Moran every year since it began in 2007, and I’ve been a finalist nine times, and highly commended twice, so there have been a fair few images that I’ve put forward.” Winning with Endangered is an “extra bit special” too, she adds because it has a lot of personal value to her. “It talks about some of my most fundamental concerns and loves – the environment and the experience of being alive. To be able to have an image that speaks to something bigger than myself is wonderful…

While the World Press Photo awards might not hold the title for the longest running competition (although 62 years is extremely impressive), or the highest number of entries (78,801 photographs entered by 4,738 photographers from 129 countries) or the largest prize for a single images, what it can boast proudly and consistently is that of a showcase of the greatest photojournalism from around the world – something it’s been doing for decades. This year marks the 62nd time the contest has been run. Founded in 1955 in the Netherlands, the World Press Photo competition was conceived by a group of Dutch photographers keen to showcase their work to a global audience. Little did they know just how huge it would grow. Based in Amsterdam, for over six decades the World Press…
