Award Winning Photography

Why should you care if I am an award winning photographer?
The simple answer is Better Pictures!

Participating in print competition trains me to concentrate on and see the differences between average professional images and a great professional images, and this translates into “seeing” great images in my head while I’m shooting.

By attending print competitions I get to see great images from all over the world, and this helps me see things in different ways, at different angles, with different lighting, all of which makes me a better photographer. I am more able to quickly adapt to different situations and create the best images possible, given the situations, surroundings, and the light.

Bottom line is... you get more creativity and absolutely beautiful images
