I am proud to announce that one of my portraits won a silver award, and three each won a bronze award in the International Portrait Masters Awards competition & accreditation program.
More than 11,500 images were submitted from around the world and were judged anonymously by twelve internationally renowned photographers.
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.
Last September 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 July 2020.
This process is another way I can continue to grow. 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 an international judging system. Images are judged on styling, composition, focus, lighting, connection, posing, post production, and overall technique and presentation.
Thank you to everyone who trusts me to create portraits for you.
