Two photos were awarded at the WPJA Contest in 2016: Since the beginning of 2017 my photography has received several recognitions regarding not only the aesthetic value but also my attention to details.
My aim is to try and work like a story teller but at the same time to try and capture that “lost moment”, as we tend to remember it.
I am therefore proud that such a prestigious organization has selected two of my photos in the WPJA International Contest.
The first photo arrived 5th in the ranking in the “Ceremony” category, the jury left a comment: “It happens. The proverbial stuck ring. This image is a storyteller, establishing a sense of the hapless groom and the charmed response of the bride.”
The second photo arrived 9th in the “Touch” category and the comment left from the jury was “This is just a good, raw moment. Wonderful expressions and the photographer being at the right place at the right time”
