The NineDots awards take place every other month and are always judged by 3 incredible photographers from around the world. At NineDots we believe in awards as fuel for continual improvement rather than being purely for peer recognition or creating hierarchy, so every round our wonderful judges provide their expert insight into their judging process and offer feedback on the images entered through these regular ‘expert insight’ pieces. This helps everyone improve their craft – those who entered and those who didn’t, by getting advice from photographers at the top of the industry around the world.
Based in Greece, Elena Haralabaki is an incredible wedding photographer who has won almost countless awards for her striking and emotive work – including last year making into the top 5 Fearless Photographers in the World
We are super lucky to have her judging this round and lending her insight for this video – enjoy!
