Ellicott City, Maryland, August 5, 2013 — “A Warm Heart”, created by Pam Long of Pam Long Photography in Historic Ellicott City has recently been accepted into the Loan Collection of Professional Photographers of America’s 2013 International Photographic Competition.  Long’s work will be on display at the Phoenix Convention Center January 12-14, 2014, in Phoenix,  Arizona.

A panel of 43 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,000 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, just over 1,800 images were selected for the General Collection and 682 (roughly 7 percent) were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection— the best of the best. The Loan Collection images will all be published in the much anticipated  “Loan Collection”  book, and over 200 selected General Collection images will be published in the “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.

Titled, “A Warm Heart”, Long’s photograph will be in the International Photographic Exhibition alongside other top photographic works from the competition and traveling and special invitational displays. These images constitute one of the world’s largest annual exhibits of professional photography gathered simultaneously under one roof.  Long created this image during a fundraiser, ‘Santa Paws’, that she held at her studio for a deserving local animal shelter.  She is thrilled to have the honor of being a part of this Loan Collection for two consecutive years.

Alishia’s high school senior portraits {Ellicott City Photographer}

5 08 2013

We are proud to have Alishia as one of our Class of 2014 Senior Spokesmodels from Centennial High School!  Thanks, Alishia, for representing our studio!  If you know Alishia, be sure to ask her for a link to her custom mobile app so you can receive a special bonus when you place your order with us!  🙂

Alishia came armed and ready for fun senior photo shoots!  This girl knows what she wants and is great at following directions to make it happen!  We loved working with her! Our goal at Pam Long Photography is to have our client’s personality shine through their images and, especially for our seniors, to include some of their hobbies or interests.  When Alishia and her mom came to her first photo shoot, they came with 3 boxes of shoes!!…along with her outfits!  This girl LOVES shoes and she looks fabulous in them.

Alishia is smart, flexible, determined, and funny!  She has been busy with her high school activities;  she’s involved with Best Buddies, Horizon Club, Lines of Love, PAWS club, Cross Country and the Yearbook committee!  Each and every senior that I’ve worked with these past several years gives me comfort that the world will be a great place!……and Alishia is no exception.  I’m so glad that she chose PLP to create her senior pictures.  I’m thankful to have met her and her wonderful family!  🙂

These are some of the portraits that Alishia chose for her album.  I hope you enjoy!
