Each year, since late 2018, I submit some of my favorite images to The Portrait Masters Awards and Accreditation program. Along with tens of thousands of images from around the world, my images compete for best-in-category and earn points of accreditation. These points go towards three possible levels of mastery; Associate, Master and Fellow Levels. All images are scored and ranked by twelve master judges, who are some of the top photographers and educators from around the world. Bronze merits are awarded for “High professional standard of technique and communication“. Silver merits are awarded for “Exemplary execution of technique and visual presentation“. While Gold Merits are awarded for “Excellence in all technical fields with outstanding creative communication and narrative” and are very rare to receive. Below are the merits that I’ve received for images submitted to the following categories: Maternity, Boudoir, Creative, Contemporary, Pet and Teen & Senior.
