Being professional portrait photographers we often submit our work to competitions and we have been honored to win numerous awards shown above
Photography competitions are a great way for us to grow and develop as photographers. From the beginning of our career we enjoyed sitting at various competitions and listen to judges commentaries. That feedback often helped us getting better at portraits.
Listening to all those comments and seeing what other professional photographers are creating has been one of the components of our growth as photographers.
Our photography and experienced has grown to a level that we have been invited as a judge to some of the most prestigious international photography competitions in the world, including WPPI Annual Competition in Las Vegas.
