Journey of Photographic Expression
Kaye Hargis is a Masters-level member of the Dallas Camera Club, most recently being honored with the Photographer of the Year Award for Monochrome Prints in 2013-2014 and placing third for Color Prints. She has also won many outside awards, including 2012 State Fair of Texas Best of Show in the Adult B&W category, as well as placing in all but one of years she’s entered; 2005 Dallas Zoo Grand Prize in the Feather, Fur & Scales contest, as well as several First Place awards; placing eight times in the Gulf States Camera Club Council End of Year competitions; and having tow images published in Black & White magazine’s 2013 Single Image Contest.
For twelve years mastering the art of photography has been a personal quest for Kaye Hargis. It has been a personal journey of creative expression, which has had its mountains and valleys. As enthusiasm is a key ingredient to success, she will explore ways to keep photography fun and engaging through self-directed projects and by learning new digital darkroom skills. She has received recognition in local and state competition and will share these images, and more, as she explores an extremely creative adventure—photographic expression..
