PPGBA Print of the month “Bad lands Zabriskie Point”

“Bad Lands Zabriskie Point” Death Valley was picked Print of the month June 2014, at PPGBA Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area last night. The judges gave me some fruitful comments to improve the image and I always appreciate honest feedback.

I capture the image on my desert road trip of May 9th 2014 at 6:15am. Yep got to be an early bird to catch the shot. I was the only Photog there so I had the place to myself.  I love these desert road trips because it allows me time to reflex on my journey as a photographer.

PPGBA May 2014 “Bridezilla has the key to my heart”, print of the month.

As a whim I created this image for PPGBA print comp at our May meeting. It was to my surprise that the judges (Clay Blackmore, Paul Tsang, and Rudy Pollak) picked it as Print of the Month. I really just created the image as a joke to see the judges reaction to the title “Bridezilla has the key to my heart”.

Guess you never know what the judges will like or what they will pick based on the creative prank of the maker. It was a fun image and I am pleased that it was well received. For you wedding shooters I know you can relate to a Bridezilla.

My goal for 2013 degree as a Master Photographer

My goal for 2013 was to get my degree as a Master Photographer. I now have enough print merits to apply for the PPA Master Photographer in 2014. You need 13 print merits in PPA-IPC (Professional Photographers of America-International Print Competition), and 12 service merits.

I joined PPA in 2007 and two years later got up enough nerve to enter my first PPA-IPC in 2009. Wow I got three prints, out of four, to merit was I elated. In 2010 zip..nada..nothing… a sign that I had to pick-up my game. In 2012 another three out of four. In 2013 another three out of four and just one short for the degree. PPA-Western District Competition last week landed a sealed print which went entered in PPA-IPC in 2014 will earn my final merit. So my goal is delayed one year for the Masters degree. That said I am excited about the degree and now my next goal is to get 4 out of 4 and get a print into the Loan Collection (which is the best of the best in PPA-IPC).
Might take me another five years, and I feel that print comp makes you a better person and image creator.

Hailey Airport Runway Series


Another one from the Airport Runway Series. Hailey has a great look and was fun to work with. I really enjoy this type of concept imagery. It gives one an opportunity to create images in an Avant-Garde style.
