OK, just to warn you... this post is all brag. But also all fact! :)
Shirley and I just got back from Wisconsin Professional Photographer's annual convention. I won Photographer's Choice Best Senior Girl Folio, Photographer's Choice Best Boy Folio, People's Choice Best Girl Folio, People's Choice Best Boy Folio, and Senior Photographer of the Year for combined total score betyween the two folios (this was my 14th time I won this top award)! But this was the first time I ever won all the high school senior portrait awards!!!
Here are the senior portrait folios:
Ryan '12... Score 86
Chloe... Sore 81
I had the highest scoring case of four portraits, and was chosen Wisconsin's Photographer of the Year (my third time)!
I scored a "100" on Got Legs! A 100 is an EXTREMELY hard score to achieve. In 20 years of entering I've never done that, and in most competitions no one does.
Here are the portrait entries:
Kitty Kitty... Score 90
Lady of the Lake... Score 94
Voyeur... Score 82
Because all the entries scored over 80, I also was awarded a "Four for Four" medal. This too is a difficult award to win.
One final note... NO portrait photographer in Wisconsin has EVER won all these top awards!!!
Am I proud? YOU BET! Thanks to the people who allowed me to photograh them and make ME look so good!
