Vote for Sarah & Luc

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

It seems that this year PPOC – Ontario is hosting their “Peoples Choice Awards” publicly online this year.  Anyone can vote for any of the images and there are 4 of mine to choose from.  You can only vote once so make it count.  My personal opinion is I would like to see one of my clients images win, one that has faces of my clients.  2 of them where created for my own personal humor, and 2 were actual clients.  My vote went for the Jamaica wedding image of Sarah & Luc.  Anyways, please cast your vote.  If you don’t know which images are mine, just scroll down the blog to my print competition post.

PPOC – Ontario Print Competition Sudbury Ontario Photography

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

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.

Accepted “A Hands Best Friend”

Accepted “The Big Catch”

Merit “Sea Of Love”

Merit “This is what happens to crappy print judges”

My 20 page Destination Jamaica Wedding Album of Sarah & Luc also received a Merit
