It’s that time of year again…

No not the holidays but photo competition time. Can be quite a humbling experience reviewing one’s work from the past 12 months trying to figure out what is contest worthy. Each year I usually let out an exasperated “is that it" as I troll through the take!!!

Anyways be wise with your money and try to think like a judge.

Links to some contests below.

My favorites are American Photography, Communication Arts and PDN Phgoto Annual…

Good times last night at the celebrity packed PDN Photo Plus Expo bash…

It’s photopolooza time here again in NYC this week what with the Photo Plus Expo and all the trimmings associated with it. Yours truly is joining in all the fun with an officially sanctioned seminar with friend and inspirator Monte Isom. Apparently we will be jabbering on about ‘How to maintain a career in photography?’ And its happening in prime time 8.45am Saturday morning… Here for the full expo seminar schedule.
PDN also sought out my thoughts on collaboration for their Expo issue. Turns out in a previous life I was grinding away in a yawning gorge of craft before bridging the gap on the planet mentordom. Thankfully the perky powers of Bell Ends communal “we are all in this together” knowledge pot has us all drooling in the collaborative soup. PDN has the scoop on the soup here…..
