FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Alan Gardner, M.D., of the United States, was Awarded First Prize in the Nature, Wildlife category for the entry entitled, “Great Egret.” The jury selected PX3 2016’s winners from thousands of photography entries from over 85 countries.
"As a busy Dermatologist practicing in Atlanta, Georgia, I have always sought a creative outlet outside of my professional life. Photography provides me with the perfect medium to express my creative side. I enjoy observing a scene and honing my ability to "see" a final vision. Taking the time to compose a shot in such a way that evokes emotions and feelings that perhaps is not obvious to anyone else, is what drives me to continue to pursue this passion."
~Alan Gardner, M.D.
