He was Australia’s top travel photographer 2008/2011 as voted by industry peers.
A definite highlight as he describes was the pressing of a collectable One Dollar coin with his portrait of Professor Fred Hollows by the Royal Australian Mint.
There have been so many interesting people whom George has had the privelige of shooting, many actors and celebrities but the majority of them have been normal just like you and me. So basically you’re in very good hands when you're in front of George's lens!
