In October last year (2007) when I had my work on display for six months in Warringah Mall shopping center on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Pro Surfer and 7 time world surfing champion Layne Beachley stopped by my display and selected two of my images to be used as 1st and 2nd trophies for the ASP Womens Pro Surfing Tour of the Beachley Classic held on Narrabeen Beach, prize money $100 grand. The winner here is Stephanie Gilmore holding my 30 inch framed Manly Beach shot on the winners podium. 2nd place took a 18 inch framed shot of my image Sydney Reflections.
The shot to the right is the display I had in Warringah Mall at the cheap low rental price of $130 grand a year.
