Shoot & Share Contest 2019

Each year there is a major photography contest that allows photographers from all over the world to share their work, and inspire others.

It’s a way to bring the community together and share what we love.

This was my first year entering the contest. As a photographer, I constantly doubt my work and ability. I entered the contest thinking that there was no way I would make it to the top. There are so many talented photographers in the world that I look up to and aspire to be a good as them.

This year, there were 583,150 photos that were entered into the contest.

I had one image make it into the finalist round placing 238 out of 3009.
