The resulting body of work from the residency became the subject of case studies and educational programs in the Australian arts sector, which resulted in Peter being invited to lecture and host workshops at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum.In 2012, Peter was invited back to Sydney Dance Company for an ongoing residency.That same year, he was the curator of VIVID Sydney’s new Arts Precinct Light Walk – the southern hemisphere’s largest arts festival that currently draws over 1.5 million visitors per event. The new walk included 14 sculptural light installations in Sydney’s performing arts district, and extended the festival to be the largest in VIVID’s history in both geographical size and number of artworks. To date, five works of Peter’s have been exhibited at VIVID Sydney.Within 18 months of taking up photography professionally, Sydney Opera House commissioned Peter to hold a solo photography and short film exhibition in their foyers. The acclaimed exhibition, titled MEMENTO, was a huge success and secured his position as a highly sought after talent both locally and internationally. Since then, Peter has been invited to talk at many creative industry events to discuss his creative process, critique and provide feedback on aspiring photographers’ work, and run workshops.
In 2014, Peter became a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography – where he entered the Australian Professional Photography Awards for the first time, receiving three silver awards.
