Scott Leggo has been announced as the 2011 AIPP ACT Epson Professional Photographer of the Year, and the ACT landscape photographer of the year.
This follows Scott’s success at the 2011 Epson NSW/ACT Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) Professional Photographer of the Year awards held in Sydney over 27–28 March 2011. At the awards, Scott received a prestigious Gold award for his image ‘The Wall’ featuring the Great Wall of China.
Winning the prize of top Canberra Professional Photographer of the year is terrific recognition of Scott’s ability to capture outstanding images. According to Scott “winning this award as well as the landscape category was a surprise. To be judged by your peers in this way against some truly exceptional work from fellow professional photographers is amazing. It’s an honour to be recognised in this way. Also, it’s a great acknowledgment for all that goes into a lot of my work. My four winning images, two of which were shot in China, were all taken in temperatures below zero. Each had their own unique challenges to capture. It’s great when all that effort results in images that others judge so well – it’s personally very rewarding.”
Scott’s Gold winning image ‘The Wall’ will soon be released as a limited edition print on Scott’s new updated website, due to be launched in the coming weeks.
Scott has announced an exciting new ‘Plant-a-Tree’ Partnership with Trees for the Future. Under this partnership Scott has committed to plant a tree for every limited edition print or other product sold. Additionally, Scott has also committed to plant a tree for every fan of the Scott Leggo images Facebook page and followers of Scott Leggo images on Twitter.
Scott attaches great importance to actively doing something on issues of sustainability and the environment, believing strongly in what businesses can achieve in regards to their own corporate social responsibility. According to Scott “this initiative is just the beginning of a longer term plan of mine to do more for the environment while raising awareness of environmental issues. I believe we need to preserve the few wild, untouched places remaining in the world and protect our precious wildlife and natural resources. This effort with trees for the future is just one small way in which I can help make a difference to the world we live in.” “I am pleased to help with Trees for Future’s worldwide efforts to not only help promote awareness of the environment but help communities around the world plant trees. Their efforts help restore tree cover to degraded lands, protecting the environment and helping to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations.”
