Wow...such an honor! Last year, I was selected as part of the Hot 100 List (find that post here), and was so pleased to find I was a recipient for this year, as well! I can't believe it, and am so grateful to the judges for selecting my work. This year's judges included True Moua, Devon Jones, and Thomas Nguyen, who are among the industry's best photographers and educators. The contest itself judges images over ten categories, and each category has ten winning images. Amazingly, over 8,315 images were entered this year. The contest has become so respected, and is something everyone in the industry looks forward to each year.
The Senior Style guide has so much valuable information for photographers, both professional and amateurs alike, and I find myself referring to their site often for new tricks or tips, as well as posing and editing ideas. If you're looking for fresh inspiration, I'd highly recommend checking the site out HERE.
I won in the Urban category, and am so excited to find out which image was selected! Stay tuned to find out which image will be featured in this year's Hot 100 Magazine!
