David & Luke are passionate followers of the principle that Iron sharpens Iron and it manifests itself in their continuous participation in print competitions at home and around the globe. Firm believers that competition is about more than winning awards and accolades; it’s about pushing yourself in a never ending pursuit of growth. Never the less, the honors and accolades have followed acknowledging them both as Master Photographers by multiple organizations.

 

“The WPPI 16x20 Annual Competition is 10 times more about growth than it is about prestige. It’s about putting your work out there, being vulnerable among your peers and learning through the process of understanding and making refinements. The end result is that your work becomes more impactful and creative. Being surrounded by our extended WPPI family makes the annual competition the highlight of my year!”
— David Edmonson
