Portrait Photo 2022


New Mexico Magazine, “Fashion Plate” by Kate Russell

Photos that allow the reader to hear the inner dialogue of the subjects in them are rare and this hits it spot on.


Arizona Highways, “He Has Horses Down to a Fine Art” by Douglas Merriam

The moodiness of this photo is well executed with dramatic and isolated lighting.

Tie for Silver


Texas Highways, “Big Artist, Small Town” by Tom McCarthy Jr.

Nice photo. Colors look great.


Oklahoma Today, “September/October 2021 Cover” by Lori Duckworth

The rhythm of the ceiling lights and paintings above the subject successfully articulate the vertical framing of this space.

Tie for Bronze


The Bermudian, “Flora Duffy” by Meredith Andrews

Great lighting.

Award of Merit

Yukon, North of Ordinary, “Garbage Truck Santa” by GBP Creative

This image tells a fun and surprising visual story through the juxtaposition of Santa and garbage truck.
