Print competition has been so important in my life because not only has it helped me grow as a photographer, but it has given me the confidence I needed as a landscape photographer and artist.
I enter print competition because it makes me push myself. It makes me push the boundaries of my abilities to stretch and grow. I will admit, every time my print is getting judged(especially if there is a critique) I get sick to my stomach. But I love it because it teaches me so much and in the end I become a better photographer for myself and my clients.
