After winning a 3rd Prize - Bronze - Award last year for my Lighthouse Series, I am super excited to announce that this year my photography has won two 2nd Prize - Silver - Awards at the 2014 PX3 - Prix De La Photography Photography Competition.
In addition to this 2nd Prize award, a very recent series of Icelandic Waterfalls has received an honourable mention award as well.
My Image 'Canada Traincars' won 2nd Prize in 2 categories, the Professional - Fine-Art/Landscape and Professional Nature/Sky categories. My series 'Icelandic Waterfalls' won an Honourable Mention Award in the 'Fine-Art/ Landscape' category.
Here are the images that have received the awards, along with links to the awards page:
1. Canada Traincars Image (Photographed in May 2013 near Calgary, Alberta. This images is currently being exhibited in Vancouver, B.C.):
2. Icelandic Waterfalls Mini-Series (photographed in May 2014 during my most recent trip to Iceland):
I also want to congratulate all my friends, and students, who also received prestigious awards at PX3. I spent hours browsing the winners of each category, as this is a great opportunity to see some outstanding photography and get inspiration as well.
So here are some links to friends and students who's work has received awards. Please be sure to check it out - fantastic work here by some incredible photographers!

His website is here. Nathan won several awards, here is a link to one of his series: http://www.px3.fr/winners/zoom2.php?eid=1-46838-14&uid=0&cat=
- Benoit Jansen-Reynaud. A great photographer and friend of mine from Victoria (very close to Vancouver). Benoit is also involved with Stark Magazine, a fine art magazine and community celebrating creative and intelligent vision. I find his series 'Fast Forward' very unique and inspiring, and the award is very much deserved: http://www.px3.fr/winners/zoom2.php?eid=1-44794-14&uid=0&cat=
- Thierry Vanhuysse. I met Thierry, and his wife, in New York City this past April during the Vision Explorers Workshop. We 'clicked' right away, and I hope to connect with them both again closer to their home in Belgium. I am very happy to see Thierry get much deserved attention, and several awards, for his work http://www.px3.fr/winners/zoom2.php?eid=1-41096-14&uid=0&cat=
- Moises Levy. Moises is an incredible photographer. I also met him in New York, a few years ago. I have been following his work every since, and noticed that he also received an award for a series about waterfalls in Iceland (just like I have). I just love his unique angles, very different from what I shot (despite the fact that we where in the same locations). Link to his Iceland 'H2O' series: http://www.px3.fr/winners/zoom2.php?eid=1-40716-13&uid=3242994&cat=
