If you’re a fan on facebook, you’ve already seen this, but figured I should post here, too 😉
I was so excited to get the results of ISPWPs latest contest. ISPWP is one of the most prestigious organizations out there in the world of wedding photography. I was invited to join a couple years ago, after I placed in PDN’s top knots competition . I’ve really enjoyed participating in their contests through the years, and have always done pretty well, but this last time I had a first place – and did well enough to place 14th overall – like, in the whole country. Kind of a big deal, if I do say so myself! 😉
So much of what we do as photographers is subjective. But it is really gratifying to get such positive feedback from a community of respected peers. One of the things I like most about ISPWP is that it’s not a big popularity contest, like so much else in the world of wedding photography. It’s not about who has the hippest blog, or hosts the best WPPI party. It’s just real, working photographers, creating amazing imagery. It’s also not something you can just buy your way into, like a lot of other “professional” organizations out there. Members are vetted carefully by a panel of pros.
Here is my 1st place winner, the lovely Deb:
