For the first time ever, I entered a photo competition. But it wasn’t just any ol’ competition, it was THE biggest international photography competition for professionals. And I’m so please to share that my image was awarded a merit!! This is huge news and I’m so excited that a panel of jurors selected my work as a top photograph. My photo will be displayed at the International Photographic Exhibition in Nashville, Tennessee this coming February. The full press release is below!
This is the photo, “A Morning Stroll.” It’s also one of my favorite images.
