Does this mean I’m a photographer?

So…the title is a bit of an inside joke.

I like to take pictures, but I do not consider myself a photographer. I’m just a person that enjoys taking pictures and sharing them with friends, family, and occasionally with strangers.

Most of the pictures I share are of things I see while ‘Out Running’ and taken with my phone (iPhone XR), but I also enjoy taking pictures with a DSLR (Nikon D3400), a GoPro (Hero 5 Black) and a drone (DJI Spark).

Anyway, the town I live in recently had a photo contest and I decided to enter. I sent off a few images and entered in a few different categories. I didn’t really expect much, certainly not to win anything — but I did!

I got second place in the Drone category and third place in the History category. I say this with total sarcasm, but I guess I’m now an award-winning photographer (who still doesn’t consider himself a photographer).

Jokes aside, this means some of my images will now be used to help promote the town where I happily live — Tarpon Springs, which is really exciting for me. The newly updated Explore Tarpon Springs website (with some of my images) is here.
