“It’s a great honour to have been named the 2014 Victorian AIPP EPSON ‘Photographer of the Year’. My love and passion for photography is only heightened by the fact that I get to team my profession with visiting some of the most amazing places on earth. Antarctica is truly one of the most photogenic places I have ever visited.” said Joshua.
