in August 2016 I was honored at the annual awards for Professional Photographers of America, San Diego chapter PPSDC with the Photographer of the Year award as well as two category awards – Photojournalism Photographer of the Year and Illustrative Photographer of the Year.
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the world’s largest non-profit photography association organized for professional photographers, by professional photographers…and with more than 29,000 creative members in more than 50 countries. Their mission is to create a vibrant community of successful professional photographers by providing education, resources and industry standards of excellence.
I am so honored and so humbled by this recognition as the members of this group are amazing photographers. I have learned so much being a part of this group and am looking forward to another year of friendship, challenge and growth. Thanks to all my friends and teachers who have supported me on this new journey of mine.
