Not to long ago I sent in some images to the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers. I came in 2nd place overall among the best wedding photographers in the world. NOT!!…one of my images was from a workshop that I spoke at in Brasil and was not allowed which placed me lower in the contest 🙁 I was not aware of the rule so they disallowed the image and I ended up in 5th. Still not a bad finish considering the awesome talent. If you want to be inspired check out the winning galleries from previous contests. ISPWP was created for professional photographers to raise the standards of the wedding photography industry.
This was the placing before the controversial image was disallowed. I perfectly understand the rule as they don’t want photographers sending in images from workshops…even though this was my workshop. I’m not mad, I just want to kick the judge in the balls.
A new contest is in the works and we have entered another round of fresh images. We’ll see how we fair this time around. Regardless of how we place it’s just so awesome that I get the opotunity to work with clients who appreciate the art!! Thanks everyone.
I thought this would have done better but perhaps they thought I had done something to the brides tongue. Her tongue is untouched in the image…I’m not sure if that’s good or bad 😉
This came in 1st in the humor section although I’m not sure what humorous about it?…
