Just wanted to update about RAWards 2012: I won Chicago's Photographer of Year! I was completely surprised and extremely proud of myself. This meant I was going up against the rest of nation to become National Photographer of the Year. It was out of my hands and into a long wait to hear back from the judges. Last week they announced the winners and sadly I did not win. Being a National Finalist and Chicago Photographer of the Year, is still pretty great. Once again I would like to thank everyone for all the support.
