Judge: Jan Lightfoot: In Jan's words.... "Although never formally trained, I have always been involved with photography in one form or another. Transitioning from my own darkroom in high school, I joined the Idaho Statesman newspaper photography staff, and also worked in custom color printing labs both in Idaho and California. Later on I became a Certified Photographic Counselor through PMA and became manager of Wentling’s Camera in Walnut Creek, CA while raising my two daughters. During this time, I also taught photography classes and conducted photo field trips. In 2012, I had my first solo gallery showing at Viewpoint Photographic Gallery in Sacramento, CA and continue to show my work in various galleries and venues in Northern California. I’ve presented a variety of photographic programs to local clubs in the Northern California area and have received numerous awards through competitions and juried shows. I was a 2019 presenter at Fotoclave and I was recently honored to receive NANPA’s 2021 Showcase award for First Runner Up in Altered Reality. I am also a member of the Sierra Camera Club of Sacramento, Viewpoint Photographic Gallery and Chairman of the PSA North American International Exhibition. I currently judge for local and international competitions and juried shows. My philosophy in judging has always been to provide the maker of an image with honest, positive feedback. I stress the importance that constructive feedback can be a valuable tool to learn to see creatively, build a portfolio, or acquire a better understanding of photography. My ultimate goal in judging an image is to help photographers find expression within their own style of photography."
