I’m delighted to share that I was named a finalist in the 2020 Travel Photographer of the Year competition. One of the world’s most prestigious photography awards, TPOTY holds a special place in my heart, as their awarding me a prize for my reflective alligator photo in 2016 helped pave the way for my career change to become a full-time professional photographer that same year. With only a handful of finalists culled from more than 25,000 entries representing more than 140 countries, being shortlisted for this competition is a wonderful validation of one’s work. Please wish me luck in the final round of judging. While I can’t yet divulge the portfolio of my photos that was selected as a finalist in TPOTY’s People of the World category, I will share a few photos from the 2016 winners’ exhibition held in London.
