2017 Shoot & Share Contest – RESULTS!

This year’s results are LIVE!

I was a part of another Shoot & Share contest in 2017.  What is it? Click HERE to find out more.

 

Just like in 2014, 2015, & 2016, I submitted some of my favorite images to be voted on.  The best part about this contest is WE, the photographers, get to vote for one another.  We are given 4 photos at a time when the contest starts in each category and you simply click your favorite.

These are the categories :

Each year I get more and more inspired by photographers all over the world.  It is exciting to see so much talent all in one place, and how cool to be a part of something where for one time each year, you feel uplifted by your peers.  While my initial reaction to this contest is nothing short of awe, I am ultimately humbled when I get to see how many people voted, and even better, marked one of my photos as their favorite.  I am truly grateful for all of you talented people involved this year and for all of my clients who made these photos possible.

This year, 26 of my photos made it through several rounds!  Here is how they placed :
