Congratulations Wayne Capili – January PFRE Photographer of the Month

Published: 24/01/2018

As you can see, we had an awesome bunch of twilight exterior entries this month. Congratulations to Wayne Capili in Monterey, CA, whom the jury has voted PFRE Photographer of the Month for January, 2018.

Wayne's last win was PFRE Photographer of the Year in 2008. An interesting fact that I had learned about Wayne about a year ago when I had dinner in San Francisco with Wayne and Scott Hargis is that Wayne spent time working with Ansel Adams.

Here are the entries that the jurors awarded points to this month in the order of points awarded:

  1. Wayne Capili - #21
  2. Stephen Reed - #9
  3. Whit Richardson - #2
  4. Dave Spencer - #11
  5. Canek Estrada - #17
  6. Matthew Stallone - #7
  7. Franz Rabe - #24
  8. Matt Rosendahl - #20

Here are Wayne's comments:

What a great way to start the year! I’ll make sure that I won’t spend the very generous cash prize in one place! LOL!! In all seriousness, the images that were in this month’s contest showed great creativity and execution, I’m honored as an old guy, that I can still run with the young talent in our field. It’s hard! And at the same time, the challenge is exhilarating.
