One of the most exciting feelings about my job of wedding photographer is having the opportunity to see new places and meet new people, all of that while photographing. I experienced exactly that just few months ago when I met Yating & Neng, a cute couple from China. They came to Croatia for their honeymoon before the wedding so they wanted me to be their honeymoon or engagement photographer in Rovinj and Motovun.
The results of this year’s first round of Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) contest are in and one of my wedding photos won new award! You can see the photo in the post. Congratulations to all of my colleagues who placed with their photos in this round. You can see the whole winning gallery at the official WPJA website.
The thing is it’s not so much about the awards themselves, as it’s about what’s behind them. Fearless Photographers, ISPWP and WPJA are very significant and influential wedding photography societies and all of them hold quarterly contests for their members among which are the world’s best wedding photographers of our time.
I won 3 new awards in International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) Spring 2015 contest!!! Once again it was a great feeling to be in a position of finding my name among so many other talented and famous names and photographers I admire.
Fearless Conference came to Europe two years ago so it’s not that new. And right on time for that first conference which was held in Amsterdam, Nikola decided to go and visit, learn and find some inspiration. Later, seeing from his point of view, the conference succeeded in doing exactly that for him. So he visited the second year and the third year, this year, I came along to see, hear, feel the magic. And I was surprised by the things I’ve had learnt.
I've been traveling through India with my wife for the last 15 days and while we’re having a great time getting to know this amazing culture and Indian people, the one thing we were looking forward to do was to participate in Holi festival, a celebration that in recent years is getting so popular all over our planet.
I’ve never worn any kind of jewellery at all so it was sort of painful to imagine having a ring on my finger. Luckily, my wife’s not into jewellery either and we’re both so not into shiny sparkling things in general, still we wanted to have some wedding rings, so she had a mission of finding alternative ones.
I'm so happy to win another award from awesome International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) in their Fall 2014 contest!
