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!

NAPƒS 2017 Critic’s Choice Award Winners

Our Critic’s Choice judge for 2017 was Randy Kerr, legendary Texas photographer and past NAPƒS speaker.

Randy’s comments…

This was really tough! So many many really nice images. I was left to go beyond what makes a great photograph because there were so many great ones. With that said, I made my choices based on three elements: storytelling, emotional transformation, and cultural purpose.

As I age, as time moves on and artists grow, those of us who influence others are responsible to educate the cultural necessity to be better storytellers of the human experience in culture and our fragile eco-systems. The selected images do this needed work on behalf of our world’s future.
