Delano photographer McDonald wins awards
Joe McDonald of McDonald’s Studio in Delano, received three photographic awards for his competition photographs entered at the Minnesota Photographers State convention in Alexandria April 15.
McDonald received a “Judge’s Choice Award” for his print titled “Ride on the Wild Side.”
He also won the elite “Kodak Gallery Award” for photographic excellence for that same print, which features Justin Rehmann of Howard Lake by the railroad tracks in Delano.
The third award McDonald won was the “Court of Honor” for the highest total print scores for all four of his entries in the Masters category.
“It is a great honor for my images to be recognized by some of the top photographers in America,” McDonald said. “It was also a lot of fun to receive the awards at the ceremony banquet in front of my colleagues and friends.”
