Thank you to all the photographers that shared their photos in the Creative Portraits Photo Contest with chances to win a professional studio light kit and more!

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Renee Robyn for her collaboration as a guest judge. Renee's style is an ethereal combination of fact and fiction, merging together expertly shot photographs of unique and interesting subjects with hours of meticulous retouching in Photoshop to create easily recognizable imagery that is both stunning and distinctively her own. She currently teaches workshops around the world.

Grand Jury Winner

"This one immediately stood out to me because it isn't following any of the popular trends in photography and really is a "creative portrait". It thinks outside the box, made me laugh, and is executed well. A delightful divergence from the crowd!" - Renee Robyn

Runner Up

"I always appreciate the darker beauty portraits, the white eyes and makeup was a nice change from the typical beauty portrait." - Renee Robyn

Runner Up

"The stylistic choice between location and wardrobe is complimentary and very lovely. What I enjoyed most was the fairy tale feel and her delicate pose." - Renee Robyn

Amateur Winner

"The bold design stood out from the pack and the transition from the skin to trees was done quite nicely. I'm curious what it would have looked like with a little bit more color!" - Renee Robyn
