I was onto my 8th cup of coffee.
I was doing an unbelievable 27hr marathon of waiting…pacing….and more waiting for the announcements to come though.
Nerves frayed, expectations shot, mind in chaos, and just could not sit still.
I guess being judged by International Award Winning photographers will do that to a person!
This was my second time of entering The Portrait Masters Awards – an international portraiture award for professional photographers – and I was WAY more on edge than the first time!!!
I guess it’s because I don’t enjoy failing. I mean who does right??
But this wasn’t so much about me. This time it was more about leveling up my photography so that I KNEW that what I give to my clients was of the highest standards in quality.
Can I let you in on a secret…….it’s always about my clients – service, product, experience – everything I do is to be the best FOR THEM.
It’s my driver. My True North.
And I am AWLAYS learning, so I can maintain these high standards. So this time, for judging, I entered 10 images.
And 6 Award Winning Masters of Photography judges presented me with 7 BRONZE’S!!!
This means that my work IS of a high professional standard.
This means that I AM an Award Winning Photographer.
This means, that the dreams & passions of this little old girl from Rockhampton, Qld, Australia really are coming true.
This means that when I give my all……it comes back 10 fold.
AHHHHHHHH…….and now for sleep and dreams of my next entry submissions to The Portrait Masters Awards……
