Submitted. Canada was invited to enter 18 images in the first annual World Photographic Cup and Abbotsford photographer, Jason Brown, was honoured to have two of his images selected. The images chosen to represent Canada were selected by a panel of members from the Professional Photographers of Canada.
Brown’s first selected image was “Shoe-icide” which is an image of a glossy, red shoe hanging from a hook and dripping blood which already won top Illustrative image in Canada and British Columbia salons. His other selected image was “Radial Ascension”, a photograph of a glass staircase circling a glass elevator which won top Architectural image in British Columbia. Both are part of the Canadian Loan Collection which consists of 40 photographs selected to represent imaging in Canada for 2013.
Brown says, “I was thrilled and honoured to be invited to participate in the World Photographic Cup. The caliber of international submissions was phenomenal. It inspires me to keep improving my photography and retouching skills as I prepare my next round of competition entries.”
Canada won one gold and one silver medal. The First World Photographic Cup went to the USA Team with one gold, one silver and three bronze medals.
Brown is a second generation artist and has been pursing photography since he bought his first SLR camera in 1997. He has used his photography skills to support many non-profit organizations locally and internationally such as Matthew’s House, Run for Water, Crystal Gala, Fraser Valley Child Development Centre and We Day.
Brown regularly does portrait photography for families throughout the Lower Mainland and commercial photography for a wide variety of North American companies. More of his photography may be seen at www.rastudio.ca and www.jasonbrown.ca.
