I don’t toot my own horn too often — at least, I hope not! But I did want to share one nice award I recently received. As a part of the professional networking I’ve been doing, in January of this year I joined the Alberta chapter of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC).
Just before I headed out on my month-long road trip to Peace River, I submitted a collection of 10 photographs to the PPOC’s juried accreditation process, in the category of Pictorial / Scenic photography. The judges evaluate all submissions, looking for above average work in areas like impact, creativity, style, composition, presentation, technical execution and more.
I’m pleased to say that the panel of judges accepted all 10 images in February, and as a result I’m now a formally accredited member of the PPOC. While I’m often my own harshest critic and strongest slave-driver to improve my craft, it’s nice to learn that a selection of my work passes muster with a group of experienced industry pro’s.
I gave a short interview that was published on the PPOC Alberta web site. Five of my accredited images are published with the interview, but unfortunately it’s no longer online. To see a slideshow of all 10 images, click this link. Sorry, my gallery hosting site only supports slideshows in Flash for now, but if you can’t load a Flash animation you can look at the images in the associated gallery page.
Okay, end of shameless self-promotion… for now. 🙂
