Judge: Roy Sewall
Roy is a semi-retired professional photographer based in Bethesda, Maryland, adjacent to Washington, DC.
Roy’s interest in photography evolved from travel in six continents, yet he found his own community to be one of the most photogenic locations in the world.
From 2001 to 2009 Roy concentrated on capturing scenes of the Potomac River and the adjacent Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal. He then developed diverse bodies of work that include foreign and domestic destinations, architecture and design, people, nature, old places and things, and abstracts. He then moved on to a project called “Mysterra” – illusions that convey fantasy, whimsy, and spirits. Today Roy’s interests are quite broad.
Roy has done extensive work for private and commercial clients, as well as Potomac River and C&O Canal-related government and non-profit organizations.
Roy considers the ultimate destination for a photograph to be a large fine art print, 12″ x 18″ or larger. He has exhibited in numerous DC-area groups and one-person shows, as well as in his own studio.
