One House and Two Photography Gurus!
The last half of 2017 brought many challenges, but getting everything back on track for 2018 was the plan. As many of you know, Julie Everhart, my wife, and I have been competing on Gurushots for almost 4 years, We actually got involved with their third challenge, and each began building portfolios of highly competitive photos.
Beginning in December of 2016, Gurushots began holding exhibitions in various major cities around the world. Both Julie and I were chosen to provide a photo in the first exhibition, and have both been seen in print and digitally in exhibitions all over the world. At the time of this writing, we are both currently being shown in Belgrade, Serbia during a "Nightlife" exhibit.
Julie competed hard and fast, and worked her way up to the rank of Guru, the highest honor on the site, over 2 years ago. Since joining, we have both won competitions, been published in numerous articles, and seen many exhibitions.
This past month has brought two of the final firsts - Julie has run her first competition, "Your Best Shot" with over 34,000 photographers and generating over 25M votes, the challenge was a great success. During the same time frame, I finally reached the final hurdle - I became a Guru myself.
Why go through all the competitions? We push ourselves to learn new techniques and to shoot subjects that are not in our "Normal" range. The primary goal of Gurushots is to create better photographers. We have both grown considerably, and continue to do so.
And let's not forget, bragging rights. After all, to our knowledge, we are the only husband and wife Gurus!
Now that's some powerful stuff!
