Winning the Frans Lanting Award 2014

I am super thrilled to announce that I have won the National Geographic Frans Lanting Award 2014. My shot was selected as the overall winning image by the jury out of 5000 submissions. Winning this competition means a lot to me and shows that the effort put in planning and executing shoots as well as all the investments in equipment and travels are not in vain.

Above a short movie on when the final results were announced by Humberto Tan and Frans Lanting himself in the live broadcasted RTL4 Late Night Show. I was a bit flabbergasted :-)

The image of the poser has brought me many positive reactions and lots of attention.

Thanks for all the nice comments and messages after the show!
