And a special thank you to the team of three judges who discerned the award-winning images. Those judges are:
Stan Kaady is an Atlanta based photographer who creates elegant and dynamic portraits of people, from internationally acclaimed attorneys and C-Suite decision-makers to marine biologists, first-responders, construction workers, and government officials. He also collaborates with corporations and agencies to help design and create narrative-based images for in-house libraries.
Robin Davis is known for her evocative portraits and photographic narratives that resonate with mood, personality, and place. Using simple techniques in the most creative ways she empowers her students to build their own visual vocabularies. Please be sure to check out her The Third Eye - Creative Photography Workshops.
Scott Turner began photography during high school; working on the school paper, yearbook, events, and “portraits” for friends. He says he didn’t consider it an art so much as a craft.
After retirement from a career in information technology, he returned to photography with the maturity and perspective to appreciate the craft as a powerful tool for creating art. Now, he seeks to improve his own skills and artistry, not only by study, but also by examining and appreciating the work of others. He says that so many photographers are producing great images, that he finds it humbling.
