2019 Quills: TV Camera Work (Creative Camera Work)

Travis Nemtsas of Nine News won the 2019 TV Camera Work (Creative Camera Work) Quill for 'Budj Bim'.

Judges' citation

A visual delight, Travis Nemtsas’ pictures show the spectacular scenery of the Budj Bim cultural landscape. He and journalist Stephanie Anderson were able to highlight the importance of the region and the Gunditjmara community’s work towards a UNESCO world heritage listing. Travis shot continuously throughout the day to capture how different light transformed the landscape. He used multiple cameras - including drones - to create an exceptionally high standard of landscape portraiture that provides a revelatory sense of place. Travis also edited the story himself.

Travis' entry consisted of a news report featuring a spectacular mix of aerial and ground footage from Budj Bim.
