PPOC – Ontario Print Competition Sudbury Ontario Photography

We had our annual Professional Photographers Of Canada Ontario Division print competition this past weekend right here in Sudbury Ontario and all 4 of my images have been accepted in the print Salon.  With a few modifications to a few I will now be sending these off to Nationals this Spring in Tremblant Quebec (My good friend Mike Long of Portland Pinups is one of the key speakers at this convention and I was just informed that I will be receiving my first “Masters Bar” there as well.  Unfortunately I cannot attend as I have previous committed shoots).

It is always a learning experience when you get to listen to other master photographers judge your prints.  At first your a little disgruntled as they are “trying” to find something wrong with the image, either lighting, post processing, presentation, exposure or even subject matter.  MOST photographers will close out any suggestions at this time.  In this industry, constructive criticism is the best educational tool we can learn from, and if you open your ears and minds to the suggestions made by fellow master photographers you will learn more, apply more, and in the end, give more to your clients.  This will be my 10th year entering my images in National and International Competitions and it’s still a great learning experience.  I would like to personally thank all the judges for their comments and suggestions (you know who you are). CONGRATULATIONS to all the Ontario Professional Photographers who entered.

    Great Work James!

    Still can’t get over the fishing hook pic… I have fond memories of being victim to a hook through the skin between my thumb and index finger lol.

    Look forward to more!

    James, I continue to be more and more impressed with what you are able to accomplish with your photography skill. My subconscious hope is always to be as good as you are.
    Great job on these.

    So it looks like you have a lot of beach and water pictures. Is the water cold up there where you live or are you going to other destinations for these shots?

    The wedding photos were shot in Jamaica. Water is still warm up here now. I jumped in a lake yesterday as a matter of fact.
