As a professional photographer it's easy to become jaded and only pull out a camera when there is a check involved but ASMP's Focus Philadelphia reminds me on an annual basis why I became a photographer in the first place and the value of shooting for myself.
Thanks to this years sponsors, Adobe, Brilliant Studios, Calumet Photographic, Power Plant Productions, Springboard Media, Think Tank Photo, and Videosmith and the members of the ASMP Philly Board who not only keeps this competition going but makes it better each year.
Don't ask me who they are or where the photos were taken, if I told you I'd have to kill you.
Whether your an established photographer or just emerging (I love that phrase), Focus is just one of the benefits of membership. If you are a member and have yet to shoot something better hurry the deadline is August 31st (wink, wink).
