Miss World Australia Melbourne Finals. It was a great honor to be invited to photograph the Melbourne finals of Miss World, Held at Areal, Dukes Walk, South Warf Melbourne. To be present as the girls prepared for their big moment and witness the excitement was unprecedented. Soon they would step out in front of the judges, for all to see all the hard work and dedication they put in to the competition. It was also great to see that these are just average girls – not just supermodels, and are aspiring to make their dreams come true. It was also really refreshing to see that all the girls are really down to earth. A huge surprise was the other photographers – all seasoned catwalk pros, so down to earth and eager to share their experience and shooting secrets with me. The staff and event organizers were fantastic, friendly and helpful, making the event a huge success. Well done to all the girls, congratulations to the finalists’, and all the best for the Australian Finals. Glen and Camilla Wilson at GW Photography
