North Dam Mill Photographer Wedding Images Score Highly in Competition

At the 64th Annual Maine Professional Photographers Association Exposition and Convention held last month in South Portland, Russell Caron, of Russell Caron Photography, Inc., based in the North Dam Mill, scored in the Top 5 Photographers in Maine based on his scores in print and album competition. Of his eight entries, six were from wedding images he made in 2012. Notably, wedding images notoriously don’t compete well against other categories of competition entries.

The other images that won awards were in the commercial category of a food image (Russell also owns a food photography business []) and in a general scenic category of his “Fall Into Winter” image of a lone orange-leaved tree in a field of snow (taken in Saco in 2011). That image also won the cover shot and the Committee Choice Award at the 2013 Maine Photography Show in Boothbay last month.

Russell also accepted the gavel as the 2013-2014 president of the Maine Professional Photographers Association at the convention.
