Professional Photographer and Creative Designer Caleb Walsh won the Highly Commended - Judges Pick award in this year's Trustpower Photographic Exhibition. Caleb's stunning image 'Crab stand off' won a $500 cash prize proudly sponsored by Sharp Tudhope.
"I have been fascinated with photography ever since I entered my first darkroom many moons ago now. That is literally where the magic happens and I have had a passion for it ever since.
A friend emailed me the night before the entries closed and said I should enter my Crab photo. #NekMinute. Stoked! I was walking with my two eldest children in the Tauranga harbour which backs on to our property here in Matapihi when I saw millions of tiny crabs out of their holes. I often take my Sony camera on these walks so decided to try and capture the intimate interactions of some of these little crustaceans. I find it funny how the exhibition is being displayed on the Strand which is the same harbour mouth as where the photo was taken. Keeping it local.
My advice for aspiring photographers would be Michael Jordan's quote 'You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take'."
