The Portrait Masters Awards
Oh my goodness, I have so much to share with you all! I have spent the last year and a half mentoring with an A M A Z I N G portrait photographer from L.A, the great Sue Bryce! She is one of the inspirations behind Jessica Patnesky Portraits and I love everything she represents, and who she is. I was able to spend a few days with her at The Portrait Masters Conference in Phoenix, Arizona this past September and I hope to do the same in 2019.
Okay, enough of the personal drool Jess. Moving on, The Portrait Masters holds an awards and accreditation program twice a year in which photographers, both locally and abroad submit photographs to be judged by master judges. I am on my way to accreditation and with that comes a few awards that I would like to share. In 2018 I was awarded a few bronze awards the first time I entered. Then, I decided to enter in the next round and am so honored to have received TWO SILVER AWARDS! I am beyond thankful and so excited to continue my growth in completing this specific goal. While I have decided to focus on our baby business for 2019 I do plan to enter The Portrait Masters awards and accreditations late 2019, but until then I am more than satisfied with where I currently am. <3
