Shoot & Share is a world wide contest for photographers to enter up to 50 images within 25 different categories. This contest is unique in that images are voted at random without knowing who the photographer is, so images are judged on their own merit. Anyone can enter and vote. This year there were 413,000 photos submitted!
This was my second year entering and I went "all in" entering the maximum 50 images. Results came in this week and I'm excited to share that 38 out of the 50 images placed in the top 30% or higher. I had 3 finalists and 13 in the top 10%. While I am certainly pleased with these results, I'm also looking ahead for next years contest, not as an opportunity for popularity, but as a great measure to show personal growth over the year. It has been almost a full year since I left corporate America and threw myself full time into making photography my career. I could not be more pleased with the direction that my business is heading.
To all of my clients- thank you! Your support has been immeasurable and I'm deeply grateful for your trust and loyalty. See below for all the images that placed this year!
