Michael Creagh named 2010 Hasselblad Masters Finalist
I just found out that I was named a 2010 Hasselblad Masters Finalist. I am very excited as Hasselblad is one of the greatest and most prestigious camera makers in history. Known for its technical precision and unrivaled quality, I have used Hasselblad cameras since I was an amateur photographer living in Brighton, England and am still a proud owner today shooting with a 39 megapixel beauty in my Manhattan studio.
There are 110 Finalists in 11 categories. Myself and 9 others were named in the Fashion and Beauty category; some really gorgeous work. There are too many great and inspirational photographers to name here, so I suggest following the link to my entry and then exploring all the great work by the many finalists. You can even vote on your favorites! It is a lengthy registration process, but it just might be worth it.
Below are a few screen shots from my fashion portfolio entry. The smaller thumbnails below the main pictures are some of the other fantastic work by the other finalists in the Fashion and Beauty category.
I have been pretty fortunate in the last couple years to be recognized for several different awards.
