We’re happy to announce that our lead assistant photographer, Pamela Napoli was awarded 3rd place, in a call for artists by Shicon, an Italian based design firm. Shicon began soliciting artists for a branded contest on behalf of A.N.C.I., the Italian National Footwear Manufacturers Association. Shicon contacted Pamela directly after seeing one of her photos on Flickr, taken during a wedding with T.H.E. Fitzgerald Photography. The contest was for A.N.C.I’s “Creative Award – Cool Hunting Edition”. The top 30 photographs are being exhibited during the bi-annual MICAM Shoevent, one of the largest international footwear fairs in the world. The fair is held in Milan, Italy, the shoe fashion capital of the world, on March 6th through March 9th. Pamela’s photo is currently being exhibited there and we are very proud of this accomplishment, as there were over 300 entries by photographers throughout the world. Shicon took this call for artists very seriously as A.N.C.I. is one of the highest regarded Italian footwear manufacturers in the world. So Congratulations to Pamela for her International Photo Award.
Pamela began working for T.H.E. Fitzgerald Photography some years ago and has been a great asset to our team. While attending Boston University on a scholastic scholarship, Pamela studied Photography and Photojournalism while pursuing her degree in Computer Science. This allowed her to bring a fresh perspective to the lens when shooting as the assistant photographer. She is usually charged with shooting the Grooms Quarters prior to the wedding and then provides the main photojournalistic shots of the wedding, taking spectacular photos of guests in candid, intimate and humorous moments and also capturing small details of the wedding that are cherished by the couples we shoot for.
