I’m super excited that I just won the Best Photographer in the High Desert. This is a competition that happens every year in our community that includes cities such as Victorville, Apple Valley, Oak Hills, Hesperia, Phelan, Wrightwood, Barstow, Adelanto, etc so it’s a really big competition.
I received a call saying that I’d been nominated and I was blown away. Really? I didn’t nominate myself which is how most business get in and I don’t really advertise much besides word of mouth so I was super surprised!
People love me! They really love me!
I was even more surprised when I got into the second round of voting and extra surprised when I won first place!
I shouldn’t doubt myself, but you just think there’s so much competition out there, sure my photos are good, but there’s people who have been photographing longer than me and have more experience, blah blah blah. Well folks, it’s not all about that. It doesn’t necessarily depend on being in the field the longest. Sometimes it’s just passion and enjoyment and grit and determination.
I’ve always believed that if you do something, you should try to be the best at it. And I guess I achieved that! Next step, best photographer in the world. Haha! #goodgoals
