Just got back from Focus Convention in Orlando where I was speaking on Light Painting Photography. It was great to see friends and to meet new photographers that have joined Florida Professional Photographer Association. This is also a print competition and is where the FPP presents awards and names “The Photographer and Artist of the Year”
This year I was named “Artist of the Year” I also received my “Florida Service Award”, was named one of the Top Ten Florida Photographers for the 5th year in a row and I received the following Awards:
American Society of Photographers (ASP) Award Certified Professional Photographer Award Best Of Show – Electronic Imaging Best Of Show – Illustrative First Place – Architectural First Place – Landscape First Place – Industrial First Place – Digital Illustrative Art And 6 Distinguished Print Awards
I want to thank my wife Lynn Van Duinen for her love and understanding, without her I would not be where I am today. I would like to also thank two of my best friends for helping me: Lee Burgess and Martin Gudz they both helped make this happen.
Here are the images I entered:
