Here are the six images I created for this summer’s two major competitions – the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and the Professional Photographers of North Carolina (PPNC). The two images on top, of siblings Ivey and Jacob, were made by me in a PPNC ProShare class covering portraits without a permanent studio. The one of Ivey won a PPA National Merit and was selected to be a part of PPA’s International Loan Collection. Ivey is my third PPA Loan print. Jacob was not entered in PPA. His image was awarded a PPNC merit in state competition and awarded second place statewide in the men’s category. He was also selected for the PPNC Loan Collection. The middle row are images of Whiteville High School graduate Brad on the left and an unknown youngster in Tabor City on the right. Both were awarded artist merits at PPA. Brad is a fan of Lord of the Rings and agreed to pose a Aragon for this image, which contains two dozen elements. The youngster on the right – his image was made for a story about the school –  was made into a digital painting by me. Both images also merited at PPNC. The bottom two images both merited at PPNC. On the left is an image from model session of Bronson, completed in his house with new backgrounds inserted. On the right, East Columbus High School graduate Evan wanted a digital blend to show his love of music.

I photographed three more seniors this weekend. Had a wonderful time with all three and created some really nice images for them to choose from. Have a senior session tomorrow night. Two slots available for seniors on the Sept. 13-14 weekend.

I have been photographing Quinlan for a long time. And in those years, three of his portraits have earned PPA National Merits for me in print competition.

I had the pleasure of photographing rising South Columbus High School seniors Nolan and Lily this weekend. Two really nice sessions with a lot of creative images coming from those sessions. Studio and location work were the order of the day. Both will have a tough time selecting their favorites.
