Photographer of the Year award from Professional Photographers of Southwest Ohio
One of the biggest lessons that was drilled into me early on in my career from other photographers was to never stop learning. We can always grow and refine our craft. Our local PPA affiliate chapter Professional Photographers of Southwest Ohio is amazing. Connecting with so many photographer friends, hearing talented speakers and participating in print competition has helped me continue my education. Last year we had two digital competitions that combined scores to give awards. The awards usually are at the end of the year but this time we had them on Monday. The ribbons are 1st place for wedding, 1st place for album and 3rd for artist (which it was my first time entering in that category). And with those combined scores I was awarded Photographer of the Year. This is the second time in a row that I have won this great honor. A big thank you to our couples who invite me to document their day and allow me to use their images for competition.
