Well what is Shoot and Share? easiest way to answer that question is that it is a HUGE photography contest that happens once a year starting in January! Photographers from all over the world enter their best work from the following year and people from all over vote for the best images. In the month of January you have a chance to enter your best 50 images once they are entered the team from Shoot and Share go through all images entered by everyone to make sure they qualify and are in the correct category. What I mean by the Shoot and Share team I mean actual people actual photographers not a computer.
In the month if February voting starts and I swear to you it is so addicting! you seriously are voting all day when you get a chance to do so. So many of my clients this year asked if they can help vote and of course they can. So I would give them the link and would warn them it gets addicting. They would message me later saying they voted for an hour and did not even realize it or that they voted for over 3 hours. ha ha I warned them. Voting ends at the end of February and then everything gets broken down to who ended in what in other words how far did your photos go in the competition. The finalist and the winner get some amazing prizes!
This is my 2nd year entering and it was the same feeling as the first one exciting and in awww of others work.
This year I went way farther then I did last year. I got so many votes and hearts compared to last year. Not going to lie I did not expect to get as far as I did. I just want to say thank you to all of you who voted for my images when you saw them. I am beyond grateful for all the support from my clients, friends, and family.
Here is a little video of some fo the images that were entered this year. (How cool is that they make you a video)
Here are my awards from last year:

So to all of you who ever feel like doubting your self don't! I know it is easier said then done. Trust me I have been there and when I least expect it I have to snap my self out of it, and this contest this year helped me big time with not giving up on my passion!
So to Shoot and Share thank you for this moral booster and thank you to all of you for working so hard on this contest and being so patient with all the questions you get on the daily.
