Wedding photographer Matt Adcock, was awarded 13th place for photo 87536 in the Great Natural Light category for the WPJA's 2008 Q4.
- Great light, and then the photographer found a soft tender moment but also used foreground devices and shadows to give us a sense that we are peering into a private moment. All the elements were brought together to make a wonderful photo.
The WPJA contest judges presented Matt Adcock, a Quintana Roo, Mexico wedding photographer, with this Master Piece Award as recognition for top wedding photojournalism in the industry.
The leading documentary wedding photographers in the world enter their best photos to the Wedding Photojournalist Association's photography competitions. They want their wedding reportage photographs to be evaluated and selected by some of the most notable and respected working picture editors and photojournalists in the news industry (these are not wedding photographers or other WPJA members judging their work). Winning these competitions is a true accomplishment for a wedding photographer.
