I am a little late getting to this, but I wanted to share the news! Late last fall, I was acknowledged by the photography community at the 9th Annual Black & White Spider Awards. Judged by some of the industries top professionals and with over 8500 entries this year, I was pretty thrilled with the results!
I love this image for so many reasons. For me it’s both about the power of observation and executing a vision and the result of my first personal 365 project. These are topics I will be speaking about in my “Artists Talks” at the Exposure Photography Festival. Be sure to come and check out the gallery where my work, and the work of other local photographers, will be featured. Details and information on special events and artists talks can be found here.
