Wairarapa photographers Terry Wreford Hann and Esther Bunning were the recipients of several awards at the prestigious The Epson- New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography Iris Awards held in Christchurch last month.

Mr Hann won "Commercial Photographer of the Year" and Ms Bunning was a finalist in the "Creative" Category. Ms Bunning was also awarded the title of "Grand Master", the highest accolade for a professional photographer. She is one of only four in New Zealand.

"Winning this category was validation of the value of the commercial work that I'm currently doing," Mr Hann said.

Mr Hann's winning portfolio included a photograph of the Talley's boat Amaltal Columbia, the fishing trawler that was recently on fire out from Lyttelton Harbour, and an image featuring Janet Phipps from Parkvale Mushrooms in Carterton.

Ms Bunning's winning portfolio featured all Wairarapa people and a portrait of Graham Jamieson behind the counter in his Carterton shop, Bazaar Attractions.

"We always enjoy having a wander around the eclectic range of shops in Carterton and wandered into Graham's shop one Saturday afternoon. I immediately thought it would make a great photograph of him behind his counter. The shop is such an amazing treasure trove," Ms Bunning said.
