A big congratulations to our buddy Cliff Mautner who was chosen as the 2012 Nikon Wedding and Portrait Photographers International photographer of the year, and was presented with the award last week at the WPPI Conference in Las Vegas.

Anyone who has seen Cliff’s amazing images, or learned from Cliff live or online (people literally rave about his Kelby Training Online classes) knows what a talented, passionate photographer and educator he is, and we couldn’t be prouder that he was chosen to receive this prestigious award.

Our hearty congrats to Cliff and a big high-five from his family here at Kelby Media Group.
