Hope is one of my Senior Model Team and I’ve so enjoyed getting to know her and working with her! It’s always so bitter-sweet when I finish their Individual shoot because I know their season is coming to an end with me. I look forward to seeing what wonderful things she has in store for her future after she graduates. She’s a true beauty!! Best of luck to you Hope! I know whatever you do will be amazing!
Now this might come as a shock but Joy is not a Senior in high school as she looks . . she is one of my Young models! She looks so mature for her age but yet can still have the innocent laughter and fun of a pre-highschooler. I've known this family for years now, and I've been wanting to photograph Joy for quite some time so I was thrilled when her Mom contacted me. Those blue eyes!!! Look out Jill and John, . . you might have to chase the boys away with a stick!
Virginia Photographer Named Bronze Medalist at International Photographic Competition
Kate Mitchem of KateMitchemPhotography is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.
Northern Virginia - Kate Mitchem of Kate Mitchem Photography in Manassas, Va. was named a Bronze Medalist during Professional Photographers of America's 2018 International Photographic Competition. MITCHEM'S work will be on display at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Jan. 20-22, 2019. This International Photographic Exhibit is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers.
A panel of 32 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,073 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, 2,622 images were selected for the General Collection and 513 (roughly 10 percent) were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection—the best of the best. The Loan Collection images will all be published in the much-anticipated “Loan Collection” book and over 365 selected General Collection images will be published in the “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.
The level of the award is determined by how many of those four images receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. MITCHEM was named a Bronze Medalist by earning a merit—a mark of quality and honor—for each of the four images included in HER entry case to the International Photographic Competition. This is the most prestigious competition of its kind, where images are judged based on a standard of artistic excellence, not against each other. In 2018, SHE was one of only 208 Bronze Medalists.
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the largest international nonprofit association created by professional photographers, for professional photographers. Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA's roots date back to 1869. It assists 30,000 members through protection, education and resources for their continued success.
