shine pet photos at royal/t.

May 15th, 2009

My friend and fellow pet photographer Sarah let me know a few months ago about a national competition in search of the next emerging, fine-art pet photographer. I’ve never even used the words “fine-art” to describe my style of photography but decided to give it a go.

They announced the winners of the competition last week and I found out…. I WON!

I think the coolest thing about winning this competition is that I get my own art opening during the Culver City ARTWALK on Saturday May 30th. My photography will be showcased at the Royal/T during the ARTWALK and for 4 weeks after - it’s truly an amazing space!

I’ll be at the Royal/T on May 30th from 12-7PM for the opening, and then afterwards from 7-10PM for the after party with open bar. The party will also feature a multimedia showcase of the other 4 finalists (including my homie Nicole! Congrats chica!)

So please consider this your invitation to come hang out and party your face off! Mark Saturday May 30th on your calendars. And if you can’t make it on the 30th, maybe you could swing by and check out the show another day! Congrats to all the finalists and thanks to the judges over at Unscene and Royal/T for choosing my work. It is truly an honor to be the winner of this amazing competition.
