Very excited to share the news that I am a winner of the prestigious Travel Photographer of the Year competition. I was named runner-up in the Wildlife and Nature category for my image of an alligator and its reflection in a Louisiana bayou. TPOTY is considered by many in the industry to be the premier international travel photography competition. A panel of highly regarded judges considered tens of thousands of entrants from 123 countries.
You can see the press release here: Travel Photographer of the Year. So far there has been press coverage featuring my image in many news outlets including The Telegraph, The Mirror, The Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Sun, CNN, MSN, and AOL. You can find the CNN coverage at CNN coverage of TPOTY (scroll through the images to see mine) and the Mirror coverage very prominently featuring my photo at Mirror coverage of TPOTY. My image will be exhibited at the UK City of Culture festival, then in London, and on to international venues.
Feeling very honored and humbled by this major validation of my recent career change.
