While I love shooting clients professionally, I tend to spend a lot of my free time still hidden behind a camera as I capture wildlife, events, and other parts of my life through the lens. While I feel a certain amount of happiness and fulfillment from showcasing exactly how beautiful someone can be, it’s always fun to grow my skills in other areas of photography – whether that be landscape, animal, events, businesses, or more. There’s a lot here to keep a Cedar Falls, IA photographer busy!
Once in awhile, I get the chance to submit some of my photo projects to various competitions. The Denver, IA library was having an art show, and I took the time to mount and frame two of my favorite photos from the last year – and enter them into the “professional” category. Not only was it great to support the library’s support of the arts, but it was fantastic to see my shots hanging up next to other’s photos!
The enjoyment didn’t end there. During the artist’s reception, I was quickly led over to one of my prints – which had won 1st place in the “Professional Photography” category.
I am excited to have won 1st place for “Haunted Hovel” at the Dr. E.H. Stumme art show at the Denver, IA library. Here’s to getting ready to have killer shots for next year!
