This week I found out from photographer friend Michael Singman-Aste that I scooped up two honorable mentions for the 2008 International Photography Awards. The image below is part of an ongoing series called “Covered,” that won in the Fine Art category. The IPA received over 22,000 submissions this year! Being one of the few hundred honorable mentions is a worthy accomplishment. It is nice to receive the recognition, and I enjoy being listed next to some of the well known names in the industry. Cheers to all the winners.
