Well, I can finally say this out loud . . . my photo won the GRAND prize in the Capture Cincinnati photo contest! I’ve known for a couple weeks, but was ask to keep the news hush, hush (which was tough). Last night was the official book release at Joseph-Beth in Oakley. It was fun to see so many photographers faces that have become familiar to me through this project. The chapter winners and I even got to participate in a book signing. It was truly an incredible experience.
The book looks FABULOUS! I don’t know how they chose what to include. There were so many incredible images submitted. I absolutely love the way they printed my winning photo- it’s HUGE! I also found a few of my other photos published as well, “Chubby Cheeks“, “Reflections“, and “Playing Hard“. To top it off my “Friends” photo is on the front page of the Enquirer along with a photo of me signing books in the Local section. CinWeekly is running an article as well with my picture.
I want to take a quick moment to thank my school “family” for coming out last night to support me. My family was unable to be there so it meant a lot to have good friends stop by. THANK YOU!
