    Brag book

    We participated in this year’s Professional Photographer of Iowa convention that spanned the last 5 days – and submitted prints for competition. 6 judges from all over the nation traveled in to analyze entries from well over 100 photographers.

    I’m pretty damn thrilled to say that both Brian (photographer and business partner) and I were each awarded with a Top 10 Iowa Photographer plaque which was based on the scores from our individual submissions. In addition, we took home a few first place awards for individual print categories along with a handful of other ribbons/certificates for high scoring prints.

    Two of the prints that placed first were a solo image of Travis Ferguson (former ISU FB player) and a glamour/commercial image of Travis with a female. It’s awesome to have been able to grow my career alongside Travis growing his model career.

    In total shock that we did so well, notably regarding my prints – as it was my first competition. I didn’t even want to submit any for competition and was glad I had people pushing me to do so!

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Awesome! New photographers interested in learning are always great. Weekend workshops are on the way. Get her on board with the PPI though - the fall/winter conventions are invaluable!

    Much appreciated! I know Don's work yet never got an opportunity to meet him. Dan McClanahan was a very deserving recipient of the award.

    Wish we would have gotten an opportunity to meet you - hopefully at the fall convention!

    Yeah, we're struggling thru it - injections are helping.

    Thanks for finding the typo. :)
