I have some exciting news to share! I was named among the Top 100 Photographers in the 2016 Shoot and Share photo contest held by ShootandShare.com Over 150,000 images were entered by photographers from all over the globe. Four of my images made the top 10% of all entries and 1 gained 4th place in the Personal Work category! The number of talented photographers and the volume of gorgeous images included is simply mind-boggling. The contest is set up to be fair and unbiased. The names of the photographers are not listed on the entries and watermarks are not permitted on images. The images are presented in sets of four, at random, but all given the same amount of face time during the voting period. There is no way to link to a particular image, so that the contestants have an equal opportunity to win top honors and it’s not a popularity contest or fan-driven award.
