Professional Photography has been Milton Wordley’s working life. After 70 laps around the sun he’s now retired. Early on in his career he worked as a photojournalist on many Newspapers, including the Adelaide News, The Australian, the London Daily Express, the Australian Womens Weekly and the Bulletin. In 1983 was one of the 100 International Photographers invited to shoot for the book ‘A day in the life of Australia’. Milton has been committed to the Photographic Industry for many years. He was the inaugural National President of the Australian Society of Advertising, Commercial and Magazine Photographers (ACMP) and been involved on many other national committees, including the AIPP Mentoring program, the old AJA National Freelance committee and the Australian Professional Photography awards. He was the Chairman of the ‘Fuji ACMP Photographers Collection’. Milton established Southlight Photo Agency in the early 1980’s as a cooperative for freelance photographers. Over the years many other highly regarded photographers based them selves at Southlight’s purpose built Studio in the heart of Adelaide. But as the Dylan song goes, ‘The times they are a changin’ , and like everything else, photographers and the photographic industry must move with the times. Early in 2005 Milton closed down the large studio and continued to work like many others nowadays from home. In 2012 he worked on a major project ‘A year in the life of Grange’ and in 2013 self published a book of the same name that went on to win International awards . He retired himself from professional photography in 2017. Being a lover of wine, he has often observed the people who make wine as interesting as the wine they create, he started a wine blog ‘People of Wine’. He’s still involved, teaching a bit at the CCP and mentoring young photographers. He now lives at Aldinga Beach in the McLaren Vale wine region of South Australia.
