Fstoppers Photographer of the Month (April 2016): Mark Zawila

The Fstoppers community is brimming with creative vision and talent. Every day, we comb through your work, looking for images to feature as the Photo of the Day or simply to admire your creativity and technical prowess. In 2016, we'll be featuring a new photographer every month, whose portfolio represents both stellar photographic achievement and a high level of involvement within the Fstoppers community.

This month's winner is Mark Zawila! His eye-catching work demonstrates both innovative concepts and technical mastery. Be sure to check out our favorite shots of his below and give him a follow to see his full portfolio! Mark is now in the running for Fstoppers Community Photographer of the Year! 

How to Be Chosen

Remember, in 2016, we'll be featuring a photographer chosen from the community every month. At the end of the year, the Fstoppers Community Photographer of the Year will be chosen from the 12 monthly winners, with the overall winner getting a tutorial of their choice from the Fstoppers store. Check out the rules to be chosen: 

  1. You must have uploaded an image to your portfolio in the past 60 days to be selected.
  2. For the year-end award, you must have remained active in the Fstoppers community by uploading an image at least once every 60 days.

Note that you may need to refresh your portfolio by deleting your oldest or lowest rated pictures to make room for your most recent work. However, every time a photo in your portfolio is rated an average of 3.5 stars by five or more people, you earn an extra upload! Also, if a photo of yours is selected as the Photo of the Day, you earn an extra upload.
