While it is definitely most important that brides dig my Walkabout style, it’s pretty nice when competition judges like it and reward it, too.  In the recent bloodbath that was the Wisconsin PPA Affiliated competition (I saw some “Superior” category prints get 78s), my prints held their own, and one in particular brought me some nice crystal hardware (it’s so pretty!).  Sundown Serenity snapped up the Kodak Gallery and the Fuji Masterpiece in the wedding category. A Little Slice of Purity snagged an Outstanding Artistic Quality.  My total print case score also landed me a spot as one of the Top 10 Photographers in Wisconsin.  On to nationals and hopefully some spots in the Loan Collection (fingers crossed).
