I had the great fortune to photograph Christie in 2010. The above image was one of my favorites and I guess the judges liked it too! Thank you Christie for being so beautiful!
PPA’s International Photographic Competition is the gold standard for photography competitions and features the best of the best photographers from around the world every year.

“Dreaming of Love” was also the top scoring print at the Connecticut Professional Photographers Association print competition in March of 2011. It won a Master Court of Honor and the American Society of Photographers highest print award. This image was excepted into the ASP Loan collection and will be on display at the National convention in January in New Orleans with the “Best of the Best”.

The above image of Farmer Eddie Dondero will also be on display in the General collection at the January convention. Thanks Eddie for being such a natural in front of the camera! He is truly a “Movie Star” in the South Glastonbury area. If you ask, I’m sure he will give you his autograph:)
