I’m still feeling overwhelmed by winning Manitoba Photographer of the Year on Friday night! Especially being in the running with Marlene Fast, a lifelong professional photographer and amazing artist. She has been a tremendous inspiration to me since I met her, both from a business and personal perspective.
When I saw her images I honestly didn’t think I had a chance. You can see Marlene’s photographic art work here.
And as I mentioned before, it was a “chance” incident that lead to the creation of the final image – Infinite & Eternal. Being inspired by machinations of the universe , and of course by my friend, without whom the inspiration wouldn’t have been the same. Isn’t it funny how things work?
Here are the winning images that won me Manitoba’s Photographer of the Year, 2011:
MISTY MORNING MAGIC
THE DEVIL’S IN THE DETAILS
Awarded: EXCELLENT + Best General Photograph, + Judge’s Choice Ribbon
INFINITE & ETERNAL
