Accolades

Mike Bray Photography

My first “outside” involvements in photography centered on non-profit organizations and charity fundraisers.  In recent years I’ve participated in county fair competitions, sold individual prints, calendars, and note cards.  

The awards and ensuing recognition have been gratifying!
