Awards

Early in my career as a graphic designer (BFA Graphic Design, University of Georgia) and photographer, I had the luxury of working with organizations that regularly submitted my work for annual awards contests. The awards below were accumulated between 2001 and 2006; Since the end of 2006, the focus of my work has shifted and as an individual photographer running my own business, award submission has taken a back seat to other, more pressing needs.

While all of the awards below are special, none are more so than my NFL Hall of Fame Honorable Mention photo… This award was won just 4 years after picking up the camera for my design work; it was a reassurance that the hard work I had put in to perfecting my craft as a sports photographer was paying off.
