"Dynamic Lighting" Photo Contest Winners

Posted on November 01 2017

Earlier this year we opened a photo contest to submissions using a theme of "Dynamic Lighting". We asked you to bust out your strobes, umbrellas, and reflectors and submit your very best work for a chance at winning an Expert D 1000 lighting kit.

We were truly blown away by all the incredible entries we received; the quality of the submissions being sent in were all so good that we honestly had a very difficult time judging which photos to pick.

Finally, we were able to narrow down our choices to three finalists we've outlined below.

1st Place Winner - Frances N. Claudio

From the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, Frances Neyra Claudio defines herself as a Fine Art and Commercial Photographer. She picked up a liking for photography at a very young age and started taking a photography class on Saturdays while she was in high school. She started to attend the University of Puerto Rico to get a BA in Photography, but has since transferred to the Savannah College of Art & Design where she is currently pursuing a BFA in Photography.
Inspired by light and darkness, Frances's commercial work is mainly focused in color palettes and energy.  While her fine art work focuses on the contradiction of social beliefs, taboos & identity, her work also deals with themes such as the human body, movement, memory, innocence and remembering the forgotten. Frances’s work has a tone of sensibility while commenting on the human social and personal behavior.

2nd Place Winner - Eric Cucciaioni

Eric Cucciaioni is a dual French-American citizen from Florida. He enjoys photographing a little bit of everything as he likes “the constant challenges and diversity of projects that photography assignments can bring”. Graduating from the University of Central Florida Film School, Eric started out as an assistant photographer about 25 years ago but starting shooting on his own about 12 years ago.

3rd Place Winner - Savannah Wishart

As a full-time photographer, writer and creative director, Savannah Wishart graduated from the Brooks Institute of Photography in 2012. Her work took her back and forth between the United States and Europe. For the last five years, she has set out to find her own meaning of “the primal revolution”. Although different to everyone, the idea is to connect to your most primal nature to create a life free from constraints that we may feel placed upon us within society.
