Expose Your World Book

I received my Expose Your World 2008 Competition award today in the mail. I was, unfortunately, unable to travel to Australia for the awards ceremonies... that would have been a fantastic trip. Still, it was a real honor to be chosen as a finalist in both the Single Shot - Place category, and the Photo Essay - Environmental Story Category. My Meander image was also chosen as one of the cover photographs (bottom right corner).

The image at the top of this post shows the cover of the book. The second image shows the full-page photo essay spread - these are images of Glacier National Park in Montana. And the image below shows the single shot finalists page with my image of Horseshoe Bend in Arizona - Meander - at the bottom.

I also won an 8GB compact flash card, which will come in very handy. It's been a good year for me. I feel really lucky to be able to put so much time and effort into something I love so much. Photography has been a fantastically rewarding career choice for me!
