I am proud to announce five new international awards from the Portrait Masters Awards competition & accreditation program. Five of my portraits have each won a Bronze Award, and one earned the additional merit “Bronze with Distinction.”
Nearly 7,000 images were submitted from around the world and were judged anonymously by thirteen international, renowned photographers. The judging criteria involves not only the technical aspects of a portrait, but the emotional aspects as well. The accumulation of accreditation points is based on a judging system which also takes into account styling, composition, focus, lighting, connection, posing, post production, and overall technique and presentation.
In 2017, I began the process of submitting images biannually to the program, which is for portrait photographers of all genres worldwide. It recognizes the highest professional standard through judging, awards, and the accumulation of points to three levels of accreditation.
In September 2019 I achieved the level of Portrait Masters Associate Photographer and am now working on the next level, Master Photographer. The next round of entries will be in September 2022.
This process is another way I can continue to grow, to learn and perfect techniques in my art. I am grateful to everyone who trusts me to create portraits for you. Thank you.
