“Just Married,” Highest Scoring Image Submitted
A few months ago I joined Vermont Professional Photographers (VPP.) I know, I know, I’ve been a professional photographer for over five years now, but I felt I was missing an outlet to share my passion, and better ways to improve my photography. My second-attended meeting just so happened to be VPP’s Yearly Conference, in which part of the weekend includes a print competition. Now those of you that know me, realize that type of competition really isn’t my cup of tea, but I was encouraged by a fellow VPP-er. And I am so glad that I did submit, because I ended up winning an award that I am so over-the-top PUMPED, honored and humbled about.
I received the “Most Promising Newcomer Award for 2013” and I couldn’t be more proud. To have my peers, mentors, and friends award me with the honor is such a thrill – and I even got an official plaque! To have found a group that has similar interests as me, who is fun-loving and interested in bettering their photography just like me is cake enough, but to then receive an award from those I admire is the frosting AND the sprinkles! To see the other amazing work that also won, please visit VtProPhoto.org here.
I guess this means I have to submit again next year!
