Photography: Michael Pillows

"Many people during the course of their lives, have experienced moments that remain imprinted on what I like to call our photographic senses. We often catch glimpses of pictures and visuals that help reawaken the images in our mind. Even though each one of us views a picture differently, for some it can help rekindle and bring back to life a special moment or at least give shape to a future journey.

I was brought up to pursue my dreams, and work hard towards my goal, which has always been in education. While pursuing my B.S. degree, I chose to take photography 101 as an elective, never thinking it would change the way I viewed life.

Through a great instructor, and hours of trial and error, I was able to gain experience in the darkroom. With this strong foundation, the way I viewed the world was forever changed.

I have judged in person – and now over zoom – many varied competitions, ranging from abstract to portraiture and everywhere in-between. Part of what makes me who I am as a judge is that I still compete in my local club and have made the rounds of juried shows. I really enjoy seeing and experiencing live gallery exhibitions and doing so keeps me both grounded and current."
