35 Awards International Photography Competition

35 Awards International Photography Competition

https://35awards.com

Last year, for the first time, I found courage in myself  to take part in one of the largest and most prestigious international photo competitions -  35awards. It was the 7th edition of the 35 Awards. It is  a significant challenge for me, because the best photographers in the world take part in the contest.

How to build a photographic career abroad?

When building your own brand, when you are building a photographic career also abroad, it is extremely important to challenge yourself and to be recognised not only locally but also internationally. It is true that the quality will always defend itself, but without a well-developed brand and name, there is no chance of being recognised.

A great dilemma arose

In the meantime, a war broke out in Ukraine with Russia. Sadly it is related to this competition because it has been organized in Russia. A great dilemma arose. I got messages telling me to quit as a lot of people are withdrawing and I can expect a bad PR. They often forget that not everyone is in such a good position to give up something. Especially if you work internationally and try to stand out among others in a given industry. That someone would be looked at regardless of their country of origin. This competition is known all around the world and the achievements in it are also recognizable. I decided to submit my photos for those reasons. I represented Spain and Gibraltar in 7th edition- 2021/2022

The results of the 35 Awards International Photography Competition

And yes, we finally have the results. Last year's edition was attended by 124,827 photographers from 174 countries, who sent 470,000 photos! Therefore, today I can share with you, the greatest success so far in my career as a photographer. My photo is among the BEST 35 PHOTOS in the FEMALE PORTRAIT category. Moreover, I’m in the top 300 best photographers in the CHILDREN STAGED PHOTOGRAPHY category. It is a great honor for me and a motivation for the future.

At this point, I would like to thank my mother, whose photo was in the forefront, and my loved ones for their support and patience.

Communion photosession with Moose Photoshoots in Gibraltar

Do you want to know what is the best way to select the best photographer for your child's communion in Gibraltar? Which offer is right for you? As there are so many offers and photographers in Gibraltar you have every right to feel confused.

 

Who is the best communion photographer from Gibraltar for you?

First of all you should think about the budget for this purpose. It’s also worthwhile to ask your friends for recommendations. Then look for photographers in the area who specialise in children photography. Each of us specialises in different types of photography. For communion the best will be a person who photographs kids mostly (so no wedding or newborn photographers, because they specialise in reportages or studio photography mostly) and who like children. Then the photographer’s style should reflect your preferences.
If you think about having the communion photoshoot with me it’s absolutely an option. Let me tell you some more about what it looks like.

 

See my portfolio and get a feeling of which kind of style I practise

My portfolio is available here, there you can find more information and get a feeling of which kind of style I practise. It is one of the most important decisions. If that doesn’t “click” then maybe you should consider to keep looking. Photography is an artistic expression. It’s crucial that the portfolio of the photographer reflects your expectations, that way the chance to get it right is much higher. With me you can choose two types of the photos – my personal natural style, but full of colours, lights and contrasts or fine art. More information about the differences in those styles here: Fine art photography or natural photos - what is the difference?.

 

Choose the best suited communion photoshoot package from my offer

When you are sure that the portfolio reflects what you would like to see with the final product it’s time to select the best suited communion photoshoot package. Children who are going to the communion are 6-7 years old, so I personally recommend a one hour photoshoot package. There is a 1,5 hours offer where you can choose 2 different places, but it can be strenuous for kids at this age, it’s quite long. We are aiming for a pleasant experience for the children and the parents and would like to avoid bad associations with the photoshoot. The most amazing pictures are taken when a child is excited, happy and relaxed. Usually the first 15 minutes of the photoshoot is focused on getting to know each other and to leave the stress behind.

 

Communion photoshoot in Gibraltar - how does it look like?

After selecting the package and the place we are booking a photoshoot. The responsibility to prepare the clothes lies with the parents. We can take some pictures with the family members, communion is a very important event for the whole family, I just need to be made aware of the fact that this is what you want so I can properly plan the scenario of the shoot. Please try to arrive on time, because sometimes I have a couple of photoshoots the same day and I can not be late.

 

When the photos are ready?

The last thing that you must have in mind is that it takes up to 6 weeks to finish editing the photos. That is why you should consider booking early to make sure that the photos are available when you need them. I am usually booked for 3 month in advance, so if you plan to have a communion photoshoot ready in May, you should write to me in January/ February latest. That way we can make sure that everything is smooth and ready for this important event.

Ewa Burns

We are the sum of all our experiences. I believe the photographer can capture a split second in time that can cross barriers and boundaries that bind people together and touch in each of us what is human. Photography is my luxury. It is one of the way of my self-development, the feeling of satisfaction, the motivation to the wide spectrum of activity. It consumes all my free time, and even the time that I already do not have. Born in Cracow, I have an immutable and unchangeable Polish soul. I have wondered the world searching for windmills that led me on my never-ending Quixotic quest for beauty, meaning and humanness. My personal reality is that I am tethered to four children who keep me down to earth every time I want to fly.

Hi, I am Marta, a fulfilled mother, wife and artistic soul. I've been in love with photography ever since I can remember but a little over 1.5 years ago I decided to try my hand as a creator in this field and for the first time I grabbed a professional camera. Then I discovered Photoshop and started trying my hand at post-production. I love to create, to break the rules and to pour what is in my soul into photos. Photography and post-production have become an integral part of my life. Thank you for recognizing my work, it's a sign that I'm going in the right direction and motivates me to keep working and creating.

I truly love photographing primarily children bringing my creative ideas and a part of myself through them, and keeping that inner child and magic alive.  It truly is a wonderful gift being able to create and share lifetime memories.

Katrin Biendl

I'm a professional photographer, located in Germany. My passion for children, nature and animals is her source of inspiration to capture valuable memories and to freeze unique moments for eternity. I learnt everything about photography by myself and developed my own and very specific style.

Jagoda Kolasinska

Hello, thank you very much for this award! My name is Jagoda Kolasińska and I live near Warsaw, Poland. I have been dealing with photography relatively no long time, although it has always held an important place in my heart. After giving birth to my second child, I was looking for an idea for myself and what I could do in my life. I focused on child and family photography. In my photos, I try to create a story by smuggling a bit of magic, but at the same time keeping it natural. Come to my world!

Nadia Colin

My name is Nadia Colin. As a wife, mother, and children's fine art photographer in Louisiana, USA, I often find myself searching, obsessing, with the details of both life and photography. Before this, I traveled to the most romantic and desired places on earth while working as a graphic designer on cruise ships. During this time, the world itself was my canvas. Traveling to places like Rome or Venice has trained my eye to see the beauty that constantly surrounds us. The way light filters through trees, waterfalls in fields of grass, or the magnificent complexity found in even the simplest flower. Beauty is everywhere in nature, if you look closely enough. These experiences shaped my way of looking at things, and having a family has shaped me even more. Now, it's an absolute joy to combine my love of nature, art, and family to capture a moment in someone's life, a fleeting moment, frozen forever.

Children:

Kristen Coverdell

My name is Kristen Coverdell and I am a full time Registered Nurse and Fine art children’s photographer based out of Oklahoma. My passion developed when I had my second child. I enjoy photographing children and high school seniors. My children are definitely my inspiration.

Mirella Komar

My name is Mirella Komar. I am a specialist in tourism and management. I would have never thought that I could ever go into photography. I wasn't looking for it, it found me. Over 6 years ago, I accidentally found a photo on the internet that touched my heart and soul. My camera and I have been inseparable ever since. At first it was my hobby but soon afterwards photography has absorbed me completely and it has become my addication and love. I have been professionally involved in photography fot three years. I mainly do pregnancy and woman’s session. When it comes to chilrden’s sessions, my son is my main model. I could say that the camera and the photos I take with it are my second child.
