A pic­ture of suc­cess

BENTLEY’S Ryan McAu­lay was named WA Stu­dent Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year re­cently, scoop­ing awards with his three sub­mit­ted im­ages.

Mr McAu­lay (32) is study­ing an Ad­vanced Diploma of Pho­tog­ra­phy at North Metro Tafe and, in ad­di­tion to tak­ing home two sil­vers and a sil­ver dis­tinc­tion for his en­tries at the 2018 AIPP Western Aus­tralian EPSON Pro­fes­sional Pho­tog­ra­phy Awards, also re­ceived the Print Han­dlers Award se­lected by the han­dlers who ex­hibit the prints for the com­pe­ti­tion.

Mr McAu­lay’s im­ages can now been seen on ro­ta­tion in Perth’s CBD on the new Ya­gan Square Dig­i­tal Tower, or in print at Perth Town Hall.

The awards were run by the Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Pro­fes­sional Pho­tog­ra­phy and pre­sented on May 31.

“This com­pe­ti­tion is where the best of the best in WA have their im­ages judged and com­mented on so I’m ab­so­lutely mind-blown that all three of my im­ages re­ceived an award,” Mr McAu­lay said.

Orig­i­nally from the UK, he dis­cov­ered his pas­sion for pho­tog­ra­phy while trav­el­ling the world, us­ing his cam­era phone to cap­ture pho­tos be­fore later buy­ing his first DSLR cam­era.

“I like the cre­ative side of pho­tog­ra­phy in set­ting up por­traits but also the un­pre­dictabil­ity of street pho­tog­ra­phy,” he said. “I’m not too sure where I will end up with my pho­tog­ra­phy but I am en­joy­ing the jour­ney get­ting there.”
