The Shoot & Share contest is a free contest where photographers from all over the world submit up to 50 of their favorite photos from the past year to 25 different categories. These images are then voted on by your peers in groups of four. Voting is completely anonymous, which ensures that the images are being voted for because of their quality and not based on who took the photo! A total of 412,379 Images were submitted this year! This was my first year to participate, it was really exciting and my son loved to help me vote. We even stayed up FAR beyond his bedtime several times because we were addicted to voting! Seeing so many different images, visions, styles and artists in one place was super inspiring.
One of my favorite wedding reception images made it to the finalist round which is the top 3.1% in all of the categories! One of my styled shoot portraits made it to the ͞Best of the Best͟, top 100 photos in that category! I am so happy that I finally decided to enter this year, I can’t wait until next year’s contest! I love seeing improvement in my work, every year will only be more amazing. Thank you to all of the clients who make my dream come true. This blog post will be dedicated to showing some of my favorite images that I entered this year.
