2012 Award Winning Professional Photographers of East Tennessee Images at Annual Salon

This year’s East Tennessee’s Professional Photographers image competition winners are below.  The quality of the images were incredible and many of the area’s best photographers participated.  All three judges were master photographers meaning that they have won alot of photography competitions and have taken extensive classes on judging.  This year we were blessed two nationally certified judges due to Carla Hoskins hard work and one state certified judge.  They were very generous with their feedback on how to improve the quality of the photos even more.  Below is a list of the winners.
