I’ve been waiting with bated breath to find out if I’d won the annual Iowa Aviation photography competition that the Iowa Department of Transportation puts on. I submitted my photos at the beginning of October, and I have to admit: it has seemed like an eternity to find out if any of my photos placed in the competition. Happily for me, I received an e-mail today that winners have been selected – and that I’m among them!
Taking photos of aviation is something I’m really passionate about. Just like my Central Iowa portrait photography business, I love that I’m able to meld my passion for photography into my passion for aviation so smoothly. Just like my food photography, it makes me happy when I can immortalize the love of freedom and adventure that aviation represents.
I hope you’ll celebrate with me. Here are some of the winning photos!
