The International Photography Awards conducts an annual competition

photography community. The awards includes a Lucie Statue and cash prizes

And I am honored to be awarded 2 Honorable Mention in a Sports – Other Category
in the 2015 International Photography Awards (IPA) Competition for the
winning entry “fitness warrior” and “ ifly”
“Fitness warrior” was photograph using Fuji X100s. Here is a write up and video of
of how this is done. I question myself; Is X100s a commercial worthy camera? I will
let you be the judge.
As for the second award, ‘ifly’. Its a project with a local Cheer leading Team; Wildcards.
The sexy X-pro1 and XF14mm was used for this shot. Here is the link for the shoot with
other X-camera used.
Lastly I would like to thank Fujifilm for those awesome X-series cameras! Small, light
