Our judge for the delayed May contest (sorry) is a local guy who has achieved quite a bit in the field of photography. His bio:
Paul Marotta of Arlington formed Perfect Bokeh Photography two years ago, along with a communications consultancy, after being let go from an executive position during the economic downturn.
Paul specializes in event coverage, as well as studio people and pet portraits. His current and recent clients include WBUR-FM, Huntington Theatre Company, Berklee College of Music, First Night Boston, NPR, ArtsEmerson, SpeakEasy Stage at the Boston Center for the Arts, Sol y Canto, Mystic River Watershed Association and more.
His work has appeared around the world, including in such publications and companies as the US Fish and Wildlife Service, GAP Clothing, Car and Driver Magazine, New England Conservatory, Variety, The Boston Globe, WHYY, and more.
Paul’s work is represented worldwide by Getty Images, National Geographic Stock Images, Saatchi Online, and numerous other stock photo agencies. His photos can also be seen at the annual Arlington Center for the Arts Open Studios in October each year, and his work is currently being featured at Cameras Inc. in Arlington and Somerville as the Photographer of the Month. He is a curator/editor for Getty Images Worldwide, responsible for searching for and recommending images for their stock photography collection.
Paul is diving into your May "Reflections" photos and will quickly choose his Final 50, and then Top 10. Here's a look back at the entries.
