I am very honored and excited to announce that two of my photos from the Amazon are finalists in this year’s Travel Photographer of the Year awards! I am always blown away by the quality and beauty of the work in TPOTY and am even more blown away to have two of my images included in the finals this year. The final round of judging happens on December 2nd so everyone keep your fingers crossed for your favorite tourist in reality! Whatever happens I am so excited to have made it to the finals and would like to thank TPOTY for this amazing honor! The two photos are actually up against each other in the same category. I shot them both this summer in the Ecuadorian Amazon and both images mean so much to me and were moments I will never forget.
