Just got back from the Professional Photographers of West Virginia Convention in Oak Hill, West Virginia. We had a great crowd and got to mingle with many very talented photographers. Today the speakers were David Huntsman of Versailles, KY and Clayton Spangler of Charleston, West Virginia. Both are not only very gifted photographers but nice guys too. If you want to see some of the winners keep checking the PPWV Website at www.ppwv.org. The results should be posted in the next week or so.
The print competition was also lots of fun and we had many beautiful prints on display.
Personally, I took home four blue ribbons, second place in the commercial category and won the Phillips Rittenhouse Award for the best News Photograph for the 5th time in the last 8 years of competition.
