CIPPA’s 2008 New Artist of the Year!

Peggy and I are members of the Channel Islands Professional Photographer’s Association http://www.cippa.org/, a fabulous group of local professional photographers. We joined last year, right before taking over the Professional Photographers of California’s ProPhotoWest magazine, and at that time never dreamed what a tremendous impact this group would have on our personal and professional lives.

Not only are these some of the warmest and kindest people you could ever want to meet, but they are also some of the very best photographers in the state.  So it is no small feat to walk away at the end of the year with any type of award at all. And yet, I’m proud to announce that at our year-end gala on Thursday night, Peggy did just that: She was named CIPPA’s 2008 New Artist of the Year.

Here’s a quick look at the images that earned her this prestigeous honor:

The first two images were taken during our last trip to New Orleans. The Lamborhini was taken at the Santa Barbara beach, after a day of shooting wild animals (with cameras, of course!) at that city’s beautiful zoo. She certainly has come a very long way.

Way to go Baby! I’m so very, very proud of you! - Steve
