Interview with Jody MacDonald
Action & Adventure Award, EXPOSURE 2013
Jody MacDonald, why did you decide to enter the contest and how did you prepare your submission?
I decided to enter the contest because it looked like it had a lot of mainstream exposure.
That it would reach an audience beyond my adventure sport photography world. I prepared my submission with this in mind. Images that would appeal to a broad audience.
I also liked the look and feel of See.me’s website. They seemed to be very professional.
Do you have some advice for photographers interested to submit their work to this year’s EXPOSURE Awards?
“Be very critical of your own work.”
Just the same advice I would give to anyone entering any contest: Look at the previous category winners and be very critical of your own work when entering.
What does the EXPOSURE Award mean to you? Can you please share your experience?
“I think it gives you confidence in your own work which is really important.”
It is definitely an honor. I think it should always be an honor to win anything. Especially in the field of photography when there are so many photographers out there with digital cameras.
Also, winning a category that is judged by such prominent industry professionals is a huge honor. I think it gives you confidence in your own work which is really important.
It’s also great to be apart of a company that is doing so much to promote the power and importance of photography.
The only downside to my experience was that it took about a year to get paid and I had to email them several times in order to get payment.
How has participating in the EXPOSURE Awards changed your career?
I’m unsure of how being a category winner directly effected by photography career but I’m sure it exposed my work to an audience I probably would not have otherwise reached.
