Highlights of 2012 ~ Akemi Photography

2012 has been an amazing year!  Among the highlights were:

I became a photographer…..full time!!

First ‘Gold’ (two in fact!!) award in the NSW/ACT AIPP State Awards. And also thrillingly a whole swag of other awards!

Went ‘live’ on this new website with Eleven Media.

Set up the home studio and can now photograph regardless of the weather and the time!

My first solo exhibition ‘Pawtraits’ was held in conjunction with the RSPCA.

I continued to work with RSPCA and Wildlife Victoria.

I had the privilege to meet and photograph many new people and furkids!  I truly love that I get to be part of capturing their beauty at that time!

Starting volunteering my photography with Shar Pei Rescue, Siberian Husky Rescue and Australia Working Dogs Rescue – all inspiring groups of people who do amazing things to help dogs who’ve have a rough go a life.

I had my first photograph published in a photography magazine.

Undertook commercial photography with Hey Pup! and Assistance Dogs Australia. Even better was that Keiko was one of the stars in the launch of Hey Pups! new mattress covers that we photographed.

2013 holds so much promise to be as good, and maybe if I’m fortunate, even better!  I have some fantastic things planned and await excitedly for the other opportunities and exciting events to unfold as the year progresses.  To everyone who has helped make it the year that it was – thankyou!  I am grateful for every kindness, piece of wisdom shared and for the faith placed in me.
