This is the day, the day that my title goes from “Photographer” to “Published Photographer.” My goal this year was to become more competitive in my photography, to enter any competition that I could and submit to as many publications as I could to really challenge myself and grow as an artist so that I may be able to translate that into the art that I create for my clients.
When I submitted my photos to Dear Photographer magazine I knew that I would be among many, after the deadline came it was posted that over 8,600 photos were submitted and I had very little expectations. So imagine my surprise when I received not one but two acceptance emails. I had two photos out of the 192 chosen that would be included in this beautiful publication among some of the top artists in the industry.
I have to say that I have always understood the importance of print, of having a tangible photo that displayed my art. But seeing my photos and MY name among these other talented artists has been so humbling. I still cannot believe it and I am so excited about what the future holds for me and my work. Thank you for following me on this journey, I can’t wait to share the next chapter with you!
Below are the two photos that have been printed in this breath taking publication and some photos that show the beauty of the publication so you can see it too. Oh, and I couldn’t keep the two little baby models out of the fun…they thought it was pretty special when they found themselves among the images!
