The overall winner Pete Bristo
N-PHOTO PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2020
I’m super excited to have won N-Photo Photographer of the Year 2020. I joined Photocrowd in March and have entered many of N-Photo’s contests. I feel the magazine’s contests are more professional, asking for 3000px on the longest edge (minimum), EXIF data and a small 50-word description. Plus, NPOTY has a great variety of categories to enter throughout the year. Winning the Nikon Z 50 Twin Lens Kit is Just brilliant! I’ve been thinking about going mirrorless for the past couple of years, so I can’t wait to get out there and put this great little camera to use!
WIN A NIKON Z 6II
NIKON Z 6II – THE NEXT-GEN FULL-FRAME MIRRORLESS!
The Z 6II builds on its predecessor’s legacy as Nikon’s most versatile mirrorless camera. This second incarnation of the full-frame Z system boasts two EXPEED processors, and a dual card slot with provision for a CFexpress or XQD card plus a UHS-II SD card. It has a 24.5Mp sensor, can shoot 14fps bursts and is able to produce 8-bit internal video footage (10-bit via an external recorder). Add to that an extended battery life and a future firmware update that will allow the camera to record 4K UHD video at 60fps, and the Z 6II is N-Photo’s top pick for content creators who shoot stills and video.
1. Gothic Bride
BY PETE BRISTO
This year’s many challenges haven’t stopped N-Photo readers from entering our monthly NPOTY competition, and the standards have never been higher. But it was this beautiful bridal portrait that really captured our attention. It took gold in our summer issue’s Weddings competition and the NPOTY community agreed, awarding it the crowd vote to boot. The composition, colour palette and subject matter combine to create a truly exquisite photograph. The running bride produces a clear narrative and raises questions that linger long in the mind. We are therefore pleased to announce that N-Photo Photographer of the Year 2020 and winner of a Z 50 Twin Lens Kit is Pete Bristo!
Camera: Nikon D3S
Lens: 16mm f/2.8
Exposure: 1/320 sec, f/3.5, ISO2500
