It is a rare Autumn day that I can take time off to reflect upon my personal progress as a wedding & portrait photographer based in Prague.
Though I used to relish the idea of entering wedding photography contests - in late summer of 2018 after much prodding from my own staff - I finally relented.
The Wedding Photojournalist Association or the WPJA was an obvious choice as they set the bar very high for both accepting members as well as recognizing excellence amongst its rank. I did smile a bit as I recognized many members - who like myself left photojournalism for the wonderful story telling ability that is present in modern & contemporary wedding photography. So many of the giants of todays wedding photography were formerly successful photojournalists.
Though I have only just started to submit images I am pretty pleased with the recognition received so far. I do hope to add many more such wonderful moments captured on the behalf of couples who entrust in me to tell their stories.
