Photographer of the Month Awards for 2018

Beginning in January, we'll be selecting a photographer of the month. Each month, we'll cull the best of the most recent photos in the community and select our favorite, featuring that photographer's work. At the end of the year, we'll select an overall winner from the 12 monthly winners, who will win a tutorial of their choice from the Fstoppers store. To qualify each month, you simply must have uploaded an image to your portfolio in the past 30 days.​ So, get out there, post some photos, and check out the work of the talented Fstoppers community! We're pleased to have you here.

Grace Almera has my vote, for a chance at "Intro to Video". I already sort of have my camera and lighting skills to fit my style and know I want to venture to the unknown with video and learn is scary part of the industry and craft because a lot of people ask me if I do video but like I don't know I lose lots of potential clients but I truly want to learn this new craft and use my camera to its fullest. Thanks

Clay Cook's Fashion and Editorial! I'm not a fashion photographer by any means, but I feel like this will be really relevant for my work with cosplayers.

would love to win the tutorial ''where art meet architecture 1'' i got convinced this is the tutorial for me not only because i am a contractor and also into photography but when i watched Amateur Vs Pro Architecture Photographer Shoot The "DOME HOUSE" and the funny thing is i voted thinking it was mike kelley's work only to realize it was lee and when he said he used mikes tricks against him i knew that was the tutorial for me. so yes ''where art meet architecture 1''

I really want to get my hands on your Perfecting the Headshot tutorial. I’m excited to see how this class can take my portraits to a new level.

Lilia Alvarado gets my vote for a shot at photographing the world 4
