NZIPP 2013 Iris Awards success

We’re big believers in the NZIPP – the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography.

Not only is Jason a fully Qualified and Accredited member, but he’s also the Chairman of the Wellington region. We believe in the aims of the NZIPP: providing a benchmark to our clients; promoting friendship and a network of photographers; and most importantly, raising our standard of photography.


This is where the annual NZIPP Iris print awards come in. Our clients are awesome enough to let us try a few things and create some amazing artwork for them, and every year we select our favourite ~8 images for selection into the Iris Awards.


It’s nerve-wracking and exhilarating at the same time.


This year was no different, and Jason had his best result ever, walking away as a Finalist in the Wedding Creative category, and receiving 4 Bronzes, 1 Silver and 2 GOLDS!

Not only were there 2 Golds, but one of the images – from our other business, Studio Hospcotch – was the highest scoring colour print of the entire awards.

It’s something to have your clients love and respect your work, but another thing altogether to have your photography peers – the best in the country – rate your work so highly.


Enough words, onto the images. Enjoy!
