Maine Professional Photographers Association Image Competition Results

The MPPA Image Competition every year is a nail biter

I enter my images into the Maine Professional Photographers Association's Image Competition nearly every single year, and every single year I sit on pins and needles waiting for the results. This year, due to unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to attend the judging in person, so armed with my cell phone and text updates, I sat anxiously awaiting my scores.

There is a big difference between images that make our clients happy and images that meet the specific criteria outlined by the Professional Photographers of America and their judging panel. My goal is to create competition worthy images every single session. Which is why my images below are mostly client images. It's very important for me to prove that we are award winning photographers, not just because in a controlled setting we create stunning images, but on the fly, during a crazy wedding day we can still deliver the same quality!

It's a 12 point, rigorous judging. And it kills me!
