I’m very excited to say that thanks to several wonderful photographers from APPA who encouraged me to enter print competition, I had a very successful first year. Three of my prints merited, and much to my surprise my “I’d rather be in Oz” print won the Kodak Gallery Award of photographic excellence. The wizard of Oz print involved a lot of work by many people, and I’m so excited to have this award for the image.
This was a record year for entries on our state level with over 100 prints entered. The Arkansas Professional Photographers Association is made up of hard working photographers ranging from 40 years in the business down to just a desire to start and each one of us is always ready to learn. The more I know the more I can do for my clients.
