Wedding photographer Mark Black, was awarded 1st place for photo 1700201 in the Weather category for the WPJA's 2015 Q3 Photography Contest.
- Technically, it was a little shaky but the photographer took the time to do a timed exposure and capture the lightning, and that was really nice. It added a nice storytelling photo to the couple’s images of their rainy day.
The WPJA contest judges presented Mark Black, a Illinois, United States 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.
