Paris, France/Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
Michael Grecco received several awards in the 2011 Prix de la Photographie Paris competition, which received over 4000 entries from around the world. He received gold awards in the Portraiture and Personality categories for the entries entitled "Steve Martin" and "Martin Scorsese on Rooftop" and several other awards, including two bronze awards. He has been invited to exhibit his work at Espace DUPON in Paris in July.
About the Winner: After a defining stint in photojournalism at the Boston Herald, Michael realized that, while he loved documenting his real-life, and 80s music subjects on the fly, he wanted to explore his interest in directing people in a more controlled environment. Of course, the prospect of warmer climates and, a proximity to an industry that had a lot of interesting subjects, proved to be a more than attractive impetus for moving West.
Michael has spent years perfecting his signature lighting technique, and in addition to his work for clients, and as an authority on studio and location lighting, he began teaching his process to photographers all over the world, as well as publishing a book on the subject. He has won awards for his advertising and editorial portraiture for a large and impressive diverse group of clients. Recently, Michael has moved into publishing books and creating films around his photography projects, beginning with his publication of “Naked Ambition,” his coffee-table book on the porn industry, and “Naked Ambition: An R-Rated Look at an X-Rated Industry," the movie.
The 2011 Prix de la Photography Paris (Px3) competition is a photography competition that invites emerging and professional photographers to submit their work for juried consideration. The winners in each of the categories - Advertising, Book, Fine Art, Nature, Portraiture, and Press - have been invited to exhibit their work at Espace DUPON in Paris during the month of July. Now in its fifth year, Px3 strives to promote the appreciation of photography, to discover emerging talent, and to introduce photographers from around the world to the artistic community of Paris. Winning photographs from this competition are also published in the high-quality, full-color Px3 Annual Book.
