NAPƒS 2017 Pƒotographer of the Year

The North Austin Pƒotograhic Society 2017 ‘Pƒotographer of the Year’ is Patti Mitchell!

As evidenced below, Patti’s dominance throughout the year put her way ahead of all other Class 1 and Class 2 photographers when competition points were tallied in early November.

Patti joined the club and attended her first meeting in January 2017, immediately establishing her presence with a 1st place in Class 1 with her gorgeous picture, “Ecuadorian Jewel – Long-Tailed Sylph.”

Great photography is easily recognizable and Patti’s strong sense of composition, her love of nature, bold subject matter, and wonderful sense of humor all consistently helped sway judges in her favor.

As part of her Pfotographer of the Year Award, Patti received a $50 gift card from Precision Camera, a free framed fine art print, and a free 1 year Zenfolio membership.

Congratulations, Patti!
