Iris '14: Fusion, Illustrative, Landscape

Continuing D-Photo's online coverage of this year's Iris Professional Photography Awards, we are proud to present the winning images in the Fusion, Illustrative, and Landscape categories.

Fusion category: Ollie Dale

Auckland photographer Ollie Dale wins the Fusion category for the third year in a row. His unbroken streak since the award was introduced in 2012 has led some to suggest the category simply be renamed the Ollie Dale Award. Check out Ollie's winning video below.

Illustrative category: Richard Wood

Hawke's Bay's Richard Wood took out the top award at this year's Iris competition thanks to his category-topping Illustrative portfolio, assisted by a strong showing in the Portrait Creative category.
