Judging at Camera Clubs


About the Photographer


Current Engagements

Mentor Workshops

Home Base


My philosophy to judging prints and slides comes from an understanding to the four criteria to judging a work of art:
1. Describing the work,
2. Interpreting the image,
3. Evaluating the presentation,
4. Theorizing on the intent of the piece.
Does it evoke a mood, tell a story, have visual impact--- Is it art?

In addition, I enjoy commenting on prints and slides in all categories and analyze the work through my own experiences as an art director.

I am past President and President Emeritus of the Monmouth Camera Club (mcc-nj.org) in
Colt's Neck NJ
