COOGEE photographer Amber Scobie scored a gold award at the recent Australian Professional Photography Awards.
The image was captured during a family shoot at Manning Park in late 2016.
It features the hands of Munster market gardener Duane Sain and his son, Markus.
“When I was processing the image I just thought it was very profound to have the innocent hands of a child together with such working hands,” Ms Scobie said.
Ms Scobie, who is also a medical photographer at Royal Perth Hospital and a wedding and family snapper, said she was “over the moon” with the recognition on an eventful night where she also scored a silver distinction in the documentary-birth category and a silver in the portrait category.
