"Every job you go to has the potential to be an award winner.

"You're capturing history in the moment.

"Without photos in the paper, it'd be very dull and boring."

In 2013 Alistair was a PANPA winner as well as a Clarion and APN finalist for his brilliant shots around the Fraser Coast. He said it was that quest for the great image that kept him snapping.
