We announce judge for our #architecture #photography #photocontest #London

We are honoured to announce the judge for our current architecture photography competition.  Voted as one of the top 14 of the world’s architecture photographers,  Johnny Kerr is an American fine art photographer based in Arizona who has pursued art in various forms since childhood. His college studies and post-graduate vocation concentrated on graphic design but during his late twenties a desire to change careers brought him back to school to study education. Removed from the commercial sector, and creating art solely for himself once again, Johnny found a new voice in the medium of photography.

Self-taught in the craft of photography, Johnny cites his lifelong study of art, along with his graphic design experience and appreciation for minimalist design as having the largest influences on his vision as a fine art photographer.
Since earning his Masters degree, Johnny makes his living teaching photography and devotes his personal time to his family and personal photography projects.
You can see Johnny’s work here and enter the competition until the 31st January.

I entered the competition because the scope of the competition was very much in line with the type of photography I enjoy the most. I’m humbled by the honour, especially seeing the strong competition from other participants.
