The 2019 Shoot & Share contest results are being tallied. This made me realize I hadn’t ever shared my results from entering the 2018 contest. 2018 was my first year entering. The Shoot & Share photo contest is a free and fair photo contest open to everyone. 175,000 people from 160 different countries participated last year. There were 413,000 photos submitted! The voting process was totally anonymous & a lot of fun.
There was a ton of talent displayed and so many breathtaking images submitted. It was a lot of fun to be a part of. Although I didn’t place within the Top 100, I was happy with my results, and most importantly, happy that I put myself out there to enter in the first place.
I want to send a huge shout out to my clients for being so freaking awesome & giving me the opportunity to create these images with you. I entered 50 images (the max allowed), and 18 of them placed in the top 30%. I’ll be sharing those below.Finalist Images
