Wednesday, 1 September 2010


James Simmons, Viva Photography’s head of photography has won 3 awards at the WA AIPP Awards held last week. James won “Overall Best Print”, “Best Print – Landscape” and “Print handlers award”. His breathtaking image was taken during a journalistic photographic tour of Bangladesh. “I have an urge to tell people’s stories through photography which often finds me in unique places and lead to my photojournalistic tour of Bangladesh. I was fascinated by the culture of the developing nation. People were so accommodating and warm and have a huge amount of heart. I was particularly intrigued by the Khasi tribe who despite their cycle of poverty, were so resilient and have such a strong community so that no one goes hungry.” Said James.Congratulations James!
