News and Awards

I am honored that I had several of my printed photos selected to win awards at the San Diego Fair’s Exhibition of Photography. I entered 15 photos. Of those 9 were selected to be printed and further judged for the exhibition. Of those 9, 6 won an award.

The highest honor went to “Rainforest Den,” receiving the “Coordinator’s Award.” This photo is displayed on the first wall you see when entering the exhibition beside the “Best of Show” photo. The photo titled, ” Lines in the Sand”, taken at Death Valley National Park won an overall Honorable Mention. The three on the bottom row, each received 4th place in their respective categories. Emerging Rose and Garnett Peak each received a “Donated Award” from different photo groups.

As a result of getting various awards, I was asked to be part of a panel discussion at the fair on Saturday June 25 from 7-9PM. If you live in the area and wish to stop by, I would love to see you there.

Prints for Sale

In other news, most of my photos area available to purchase as prints. I updated my website to include information about purchasing prints. You can view this here.

Prints on Display

Finally, I printed several photos for a friend’s dental office in San Marcos. Three of them were large prints, 72 by 48 inches. They really came great! People are commenting that they look like paintings! Here are some photos from her office.
