A People’s Choice Winner! – artistic photography in Portland, OR

We just got some good news yesterday: the folks at the Oregon State Fair called to let us know that Ben is the 2009 People’s Choice Winner in the Fair’s Oregon Salon of Photography! This was our first year entering the competition, so we were already happy to have so many of our entries accepted for exhibition, but winning the People’s Choice award is an incredibly exciting honor!

We also have Ben’s winning piece, “Ethereal Sea,” along with some of our other photos exhibited at this year’s State Fair, available for purchase at our new Etsy shop! Our art photos are available in 12″x18″ prints, ready to spruce up any bare walls you might in your home or office.

On Exhibit at the Oregon State Fair! – artistic photography in Portland, OR

This year, we’ve been able to explore our artistic sides more, and found just enough time to enter our first photography competitions, the Oregon Salon of Photography and the International Exhibition of Photography, both presented by the 2009 Oregon State Fair.

Sarah entered 3 photos from her recent China trip into each competition, 2 into the Color division and 1 in Black-and-White. Ben entered the maximum in each competition, 3 Color and 3 B/W in the Oregon Salon of Photography, and 4 Color and 4 B/W in the International Exhibition. The competition was fierce, and only 1/3rd of the photos submitted were accepted for exhibition. Fortunately, all but one of our submitted images were accepted for display (and Ben thinks the judges are crazy for that one…), eight into the Oregon Salon and 4 into the more difficult International Exhibition. One even earned an Honorable Mention in the International Exhibition!

We look forward to sharing our work in many more competitions in the future, and encourage all of you to go to the exhibits, and enjoy the excellent works by us, and by the other talented artists who were accepted! They’ll be on exhibit at the Oregon State Fair in Salem, from August 28th through September 7th.
