I was excited to be asked to photograph the AATFA’s in Melbourne last weekend after photographing the Tasmanian State Finals earlier in the year. Belinda Fettke_BPhotography_AATFA_2013_APEX web 1It really is a 2 person gig, so I asked my dear friend Alan Moyle (Photobat) if he could join me.

Belinda Fettke_BPhotography_AATFA_2013_APEX 8We have decided to upload the images from The AATFA’s to Alan’s website for viewing. He has an ordering system that is automated so it will save some time. I will add the link onto here tomorrow when they are uploaded. In the meantime, please enjoy a sneak peak into a few behind the scenes shots and Megan and Hannah getting ready. Belinda Fettke_BPhotography_AATFA_2013_APEX 5

Belinda Fettke_BPhotography_AATFA_2013_APEX web 2We were so proud of Hannah’s success in getting to the Nationals and she looked stunning!Belinda Fettke_BPhotography_AATFA_2013_APEX 11The event was held at the White House Institute to a full audience. The winner and runner up of each of the four sections at State level are represented in Formal Wear, Casual, Wearable Art and Society & Environment. The designs by young people from year 10 to year 12 were simply outstanding and Megan Rose and I came away inspired yet again! Congratulations to all the designers and thank you to the wonderful volunteers who make it happen year after year. I would like to make special mention and thank Sarah Clark for co-ordinating this year’s event.Belinda Fettke_BPhotography_AATFA_2013_APEX 14 Having both Henry Roth as a judge and Esma Voloder as guest co-compare certainly added to the evening :-)Belinda Fettke_BPhotography_AATFA_2013_APEX 15
