Award-Winning Images

I believe it is important in this industry to always be learning and growing as an artist and as a person.  Part of doing that is challenging yourself to be the best you can be. I have found that print competitions are a great way to continue learning and improving your craft. I started by competing in local PPA affiliate competitions in 2011 and entered my first international competition in 2012. Over the years I have grown considerably and now compete at the local, state, district, and international levels.

In 2016 I earned my Certified Professional Photographer designation and I am currently working toward my Master of Photography (M.Photog.) degree with the Professional Photographers of America. My photography continues to evolve and improve as I take advantage of many different educational resources and conferences.
