ASleep PSNZ Gold Medal

Titled “Asleep”, this image gained The Shirley Peverill Award and Gold Medal for Photojournalism at The Photographic Society of New Zealand’ National Exhibition of Photography. It is one of eleven National Titles and Gold Medals Simon Woolf has achieved at NATEX. Over the years a number of other Woolf Photography Photographers have achieved National Titles and /or major awards.

“Asleep” was taken while on a commercial website assignment at The Wellington Club. The subject Dave Smith, saw Simon Woolf, camera in hand, coming down a corridor. As a bit of fun, he immediately pretended to be “Asleep” and Simon was quick enough to catch the moment!


Hadleigh Kodak Gold Award

Hadleigh Parkes is a young Opera Singer. He came to Woolf Photography to have a wide and varied portfolio of images to help promote his singing. This image was a particularly strong, simple effective photo, which entered into, and gained a Kodak Gold Award.

Woolf Photography hold the national record for Kodak Gold and Silver Awards over the 19 years of Kodak Gold Awards. We also hold the record for the most Kodak Gold and Silver Awards for Wedding Albums, and also the most Kodak Gold and Silver Awards in a given year ( 28 awards)


Lily Kodak Gold Award

Lily came to Woolf Photography even before she was born! We have a Bump to Baby Package, which has been hugely popular which involves three sessions , Bump , New Born, Baby Photos. Lily’s Mum like the idea so much that she extended the time so that Lily ( and her other children) had photos every year until they were five. Each child then had an album produced of their first five year from their being a bump!

This photo of Lily won a Kodak Gold Award.
