Somebody pinch me!!! I just won an a NATIONAL award for my image titled 'Fallen Angel' at the 2018 Professional Photographers Of Canada awards banquet!!! These images are judged by nationally accredited judges next to the highest level in Canada!!! CANADA!!! This image has won two awards provincially and recently picked up 'Best in Wedding Portrait Class' at nationals. Only one of these awards are handed out each year.
I remember going to my first awards banquet my first year in business, thinking how on earth will that ever be me? The quality and ideas of these images were far greater than anything I could ever produce and the photoshop skills were out of this world! Fast forward 11 years, and here I am, accepting my first national award. There is only one award greater than this and that would be winning "Photographer of the Year". While these awards aren't handed out lightly, it's always great to have some goals right;)?
I would like to give a huge shout out to the PPOC, without this organization, there would be no precedent for photographers in Canada. I have learned so much through this amazing organization and continue to do so even after 11 years in business. I came home from this year's convention and awards banquet feeling so excited about what's to come. I have so many great ideas I want to implement in my business, and I think our clients are going to LOVE them.
