Picture This Photo Contest for September 2010

Although a lot of the country may still be experiencing searing hot weather, once September rolls around, most of us gladly begin to anticipate fall and all of the abundant, ripe harvests that will come to fruition.

We’re thrilled that Charles Mann, a well-known photographer from Santa Fe, is the judge for this September’s Picture This contest. Charles, who has been a freelance and stock photographer for over 16 years, specializes in imagery of gardens, horticulture, New Mexico culture and southwestern scenic landscape. He has photographed four books : Cutting Edge Gardening In The Intermountain West, Secret Gardens of Santa Fe, Viva Guadalupe and Celebrating Guadalupe. His work has appeared in many magazines, including Horticulture, Organic Gardening, Country Living Gardener, Sunset, Fine Gardening, Phoenix Home & Garden, the Santa Fean, and Su Casa and for publishers such as Houghton Mifflin, Conran Octopus, and Storey Communications.  Charles has published essays from England, Japan, New Zealand, Italy, Majorca, Ireland, Alaska and from most major cities in the Western United States.

This is what Charles has to say about the challenge for September’s Picture This.

Reminder For June’s Picture This Contest

A reminder to get your entries in for June’s Picture This Contest.  Our judge is Josh McCullough of Phyto Photo. The theme for this month is The Best Frame You Have Ever Created.

This is how Josh described what he is looking for in the winning entry:

“We are all learning and growing and marking our progress each day, each moment, with the aspiration to be more aware, more knowledgeable, more fulfilled. And there is no way to still that understanding to one moment in time, one frame. The way we see that frame changes as our perspective does. And what a great thing to be able to look back on that past frame, or out into the world as our current perspective leads us and judge that for what it is now to us at this moment. And that is what I ask of you for this months contest, to give me your best ever. That’s right, the BEST FRAME YOU HAVE EVER CREATED. Your favorite. The one that means the most to you, that conveys what skill you had to bring to bear at its creation and now as you ascertain what it expresses. Your BEST EVER!”
