I considered myself an artist with a camera. One thing is what you like about your work, and another is what other people think about your work. I started submitting my photography work to The Portrait Masters Accreditations to understand where I stand at a professional level. My portrait got into the Top 20s after the first submission. I continued to submit my work, and every time I saw myself grow with quality. My portraits were receiving Bronze and Silver awards for high professional levels, and I placed in the Top 20s several more times. Associate Photographer Level Achieved!
The year 2020 will be memorable for me because of significant changes globally and because I become an Accredited Photographer this year. The fun part of being an artist is that you are always continuously improving.
