Imaging USA 2018 | Awards | Spring, TX Photographer

Cristie Reddehase

Platinum and Gold Photographer of the Year

International Print Competition is held every year. PPA members from across the globe join the competition. IPC involves two judgings. The first one determines if your images are merit-worthy (yeah, that’s industry-speak to say you made the first cut). If they are, you earn a second judging, which could possibly earn you an additional merit and a spot in the Loan Collection (our way of saying that your work is the “best of the best”).

This year, during the 2017 IPC, a panel of 33 eminent jurors from across the United States judged nearly 5,800 total submitted entries. Only, 2,660 images were selected for the General Collection and 644 (roughly 11 percent) were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection.

Each participant can enter 2 separate cases (4 images each) to be judged. Cristie turned in a General case and an Artist case for a total of 8 images. All 8 images were selected as part of the General Collection, and 5 out of the 8 were selected for the Loan Collection.

Cristie was named Platinum Artist Medalist, meaning that 3 of her artist merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. She was also named  Gold Medalist, meaning that two of her general merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection.  In 2017, she was one of only 3 Platinum Artist photographers of the Year and one of only 50 Gold photographers of the Year.

WHAT DO I WEAR FOR MY SANTA SESSION?

There are so many different choices for what you should wear for your Santa portraits. I would suggest either cute Christmas pajamas, a formal holiday outfit, or go with casual jeans and a sweater. 

The best colors for either Santa set are: Brown, Tan, Cream, Red, Maroon, Greens, Grey, Navy, Golds and Light Blue


Here are some stores that offer some really cute kids clothes for Christmas:

WARDROBE TIPS:

• Please dress in white sparingly, for this color often reflects light strongly. 

• Solid colors work best. If you like patterns, make sure it’s a smaller pattern. Large patterns stand out and will distract from the overall portrait.

• Avoid clothing with words or logos. These can also be distracting.

• Try to find outfits that are classic. Something that won’t look dated in 5 years.

• We love barefoot kids. If you have shoes, make sure they match the outfits. Tennis shoes are distracting and don’t go with the overall feel of the portraits.

• Choose colors that are natural, which means avoiding neon colors such as hot pink or lime green.


Still don't know what to choose for pictures? You can always email me a picture of the clothes you are considering and I can let you know if they will look great in the portraits!

Double Diamond Photographer of the Year | Silver Image Photography | The Woodlands, TX

Cristie Reddehase

Double Diamond Photographer of the Year
Silver Image Photography
The Woodlands, TX

I am very excited share my 2016 competition images with all my family, friends and clients. A few weeks ago the 2016 Professional Photographers of America International Photographic Competition took place in Atlanta, Georgia. For those of you that are not photographers...this is like the Super Bowl for photographers. Each year, thousands of professional photographers enter thousands of images for a chance to be featured in the exclusive PPA Loan Book, which includes some of the best of the best images in the industry, and earn merits toward one of two photographic degrees - Master of Photography and Master Artist. You can enter up to 8 images a year to be judge. This year there were around 5700 entries and 2428 of those images were excepted as merits into the general collection and 1007 of those entries were accepted into the prestigious Loan Collection and will be published into a book at the end of this year.

I’m super excited that ALL 8 of my images were accepted as merits and ALL 8 were accepted into the Loan Collection, giving me the title of 2016 PPA Double Diamond Photographer of the year. This is not an everyday occurrence...I’m the first female to have achieved this honor and 1 of only 5 people to have ever earned this title. Very, very proud of that! I'm still shocked, surprised, thrilled, humbled, ecstatic, and still in disbelief that I made Double Diamond this year. I’ve dreamed and hoped for this (like every photographer), but I never thought it would come true. I can’t tell you how amazing it is to be a part of this industry and to compete with some of the best photographers. It’s truly an honor. Now to start on next years images!

 I'm also eligible for the following honors, which will be presented at ceremonies during the Imaging USA PPA National Convention in San Antonio, Texas in January 2017:

* Diamond Photographic Artist of the Year: 
Awarded for superior photographic in computer-applied techniques and proficiency. All four of my images were awarded a merit and accepted into the prestigious PPA Loan Collection.

* Diamond Photographer of the Year:
Awarded for photographic excellence. All four of my images were awarded a merit and all four entries were accepted into the prestigious PPA Loan Collection.

* Master Artist Degree:
Awarded for superior photographic skills, which are demonstrated through years of advanced education, service to the industry, and 13 merits earned at PPA International Photographic Competitions.

* Imaging Excellence Award:
PPA's Imaging Excellence Award recognizes those individuals who continue to excel in their profession and succeed in PPA's International Print Competition. To be eligible for this honor, an entrant must hold a Master of Photography or Master Artist degree from PPA and have a minimum of 13 images accepted into the PPA Loan Collection.
