Some big news

So things have been busier than I ever imagined they could get and I have been horrible at keeping up on blogging.  Facebooking is so much more fun.  I'm taking a few moments while lightroom processes some images to mention that I received the 2011 International Diamond Photographer of the Year award from PPA (the largest non-profit professional photographers organization in the world) http://www.ppa.com
 This award is one of the most prestigious awards that photography offers.  Only 11 other photographers out of thousands received this award this year.  I'm humbled an honored to have my work receive such accolades.  Below is part of the spread that appeared in PPA Magazine this month.

this is not my image but what the article says about award is pretty cool
