Are you ready for the World Photographic Cup?! This May, 30 countries are competing in the highly-anticipated international event co-founded by PPA, the World Photographic Cup. The national teams, including two-time winner Team USA, will be vying to take the cup from two-time, reigning champ Portugal. This year's list of registered countries spans from the U.S. to Pakistan, Singapore to Spain. For all things WPC including galleries of competing images, visit WorldPhotographicCup.org.
Today we'd like to shine the spotlight on a Team USA member and creator of the above image in the Landscape/Nature category: Kevin Dooley.
Kevin Dooley is an award-winning wildlife and wedding photographer who grew up in Placitas, New Mexico. At the age of 18, he enlisted into the Navy and served on an Aircraft Carrier. Upon completing his service, he returned to New Mexico and opened a photography studio in Albuquerque, which is still running 37 years later. His passion for wildlife photography and Africa led him to his safari adventures and he eventually opened Idube Photo Safaris. Kevin is a certified FGASA (Field Guide Association of South Africa) Wildlife Guide, and takes guests from all over the world on amazing photographic safaris in Africa, Alaska, and the Antarctic. He also teaches wildlife and wedding photography workshops.
CONGRATULATIONS, KEVIN! WE'RE SO PROUD OF YOU & THE REST OF TEAM USA!
The winner of the World Photographic Cup will be announced at the WPC Awards Ceremony in Sydney, Australia, on May 6, 2018. For more information on the World Photographic Cup, and to view the finalist images from around the world, visit WorldPhotographicCup.org.
