I don’t get to write many press releases… so please allow me a few moments to brag:
Belleville, IL, 8/12/14 — Doug Howell of Doug Howell Photography in Belleville was recently named a Silver Medalist during Professional Photographers of America’s 2014 International Photographic Competition. Photographs created by Howell were accepted into the General Collection as well as the prestigious Loan Collection of Professional Photographers of America’s 2014 International Photographic Competition. Howell’s work will be on display at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tennessee Feb. 1-3, 2015. This International Photographic Exhibition is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers and several photographic associations.
HOW COOL IS THAT!?!? Three of my four submitted images were accepted in the the PPA’s General Collection of images and one of my images was accepted into the PPA’s Loan Collection – that makes me a 2014 Silver Medalist (1 of only 108 silver medal recipients!!)
Three of these images were photographed while on the road last year with good friend and mentor Paul Rogers. Paul’s input along with that of Dan Thornton was invaluable in creating, selecting and finishing these images for competition! And of course if you’re one of the cool kids you’ll know MB & JM are always influencing me.. good.. bad.. or whatever…
