For an in-depth look at this year’s awards and attached In-Focus conference pick up issue 44 of D-Photo, on sale now.

Already featured in our Iris coverage for her Editorial/Photojournalism win, Jackie Ranken also took out this year’s Illustrative category (spolier: she won the Landscape category too, coming up soon).

A Master of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography and dedicated D-Photo contributor, Ranken is also twice winner of Australian Institute Landscape Photographer of the Year and World Press Award.

This year’s Classic Portrait category went to Waihi-based photographer Mike Hill.

He and his wife Andrea run an award-winning photography company from Waihi Beach, which Hills says is as much about making new friendships as business.

“We provide a unique and professional atmosphere, maintaining open and clear communication so each individual’s photographic needs are looked after, while keeping it relaxed and fun for all.”

Another reoccurring name in this year’s award program, Havelock North-based photographer Richard Wood  won the Creative Portrait category as well as the awards’ top prize.

Wood works extensively throughout New Zealand and abroad as a commercial, wedding, fashion and creative photographer with his work featured in magazines as far afield as the US.

He took the time to chat with D-Photo online about his win here and you will also be hearing more from New Zealand’s Professional Photographer of the Year in issue 45 of D-Photo, on sale October 7.
