Kelly Pierce Memorial Award for Best Portrait of Child - 2010

I was honored to receive the prestigious Maryland PPA Annual Convention  "Kelly Pierce Memorial Award for Best Portrait of a Child - 2010" at the Maryland Professional Photographers Association awards banquet at Ruth Chris in Baltimore last Wednesday night. My winning photo was "Eyes of Innocence" and I would like to thank those who gave me motivational and artistic advice and the young lady who so graciously posed for this photo.

Maryland PPA Blue Ribbin Winner

I submitted 4 prints into the annual Maryland Professional Photographers Association competition this year and won 4 awards - one Merit Award (blue ribbon) and 3 other awards. I'm motivated again. All prints are printed 16x20 on Kodak metallic paper and mounted on 3/16" black gator board.

After the competition judging, a few of the prints were critiqued and I now know how to make my images better yet for better presentation and higher scoring. Kristie and I will be attending the awards banquet at Ruth Chris's in Baltimore later this month.
