Honored for the Honorable Mentions in the 2014 iPhone Photography Awards

Images I shot from Morocco, Italy and India received Honorable Mentions in the 2014 IPPA Awards

Yesterday the iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAs) announced their winners and they are stunning. I was honored- and humbled- to find five of my images among the Honorable Mentions in the Travel, Sunset, People, and Architecture categories.

The gallery of winning images truly shows that it’s possible to shoot incredible photos with an iPhone and made me geek out about the amazing  (and every improving) state of mobile technology.

I’m honored to be in such fine company as my friend, Hector Navarro, whose image won Third Place in the People category. I’m also thrilled to discover  photographers previously unknown to me in the mobile photography arena.

Of all the images honored this year, I’m particularly inspired by this image of Marina Towers in Chicago (aka the building on the album cover of Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot), which placed Third in the Architecture category. I think it resonates with me because it is both a travel image and an architecture image, and speaks to my inner aviation geek.

Contests are strange things– often it’s about trends or personal taste of judges. But I’m thrilled that some of my favorite work from the past year connected with the judges among others.

All of my images honored by the IPPAs this year were shot using the Oggl app by Hipstamatic. The image of Positano, Italy is one of my all time favorites– I recently had it printed using the Photos to Art app and hung it in my guest bathroom at home.

This year’s IPPA Travel category is particularly strong and worth checking out if you need a little artistic or vacation planning inspiration.
