Jul/Aug TPC Photo Contest Judge


Holly Moore, PPSA

Georgetown, Texas


My husband and I moved to Georgetown, Texas in 2005 and in 2006 I joined the Sun City Photography Club as a novice photographer. The following year I became a member of the Photography Society of America, and have been enthusiastically pursuing the art of photography ever since.

I began by taking the majority of the courses offered by PSA, as well as local courses and workshops. I have and continue to participate in many opportunities offered by PSA. I enjoyed the Print of the Month competition for many years, receiving the Print of the Month in February of 2013. I am involved in a Digital Dialogue and two Print Circuits, receiving numerous Green Eagle Awards over the years. I have been a member of the PSA Print Collection for three years and will chair the committee beginning in 2020.

I am also a member of the Texas Photographic Society and the Williamson County Art Guild. I enjoy exhibiting and competing locally, statewide and internationally. Many of my photographs have been accepted into juried print exhibitions throughout Texas and have been published in various calendars and magazines. Some of my work is on permanent display in the state of Texas. Architecture, still life, landscapes and travel photography are my favorite subjects. In 2016 I was commissioned to create the photography for the Williamson County Museum’s 2017 Calendar.

My goal to earn a Distinction of Proficiency, (PPSA), including thirteen Honorable Mentions and two Medals of Excellence, was achieved in 2017. In 2019 I received my first Galaxy in PIDC and am currently working towards my EPSA distinction.

One of my long term goals was to become a PSA judge. I began volunteering as a judge for local youth organizations in 2014 and created the first Competition Special Interest Group for the Sun City Photography Club. In 2017 I judged the PSA Print of the Month and was on the judging team for the PSA Digital Council Challenge. That same year I was accepted as a judge for PSA affiliated club competitions.

Judging is one of my favorite activities and one I consider to be an honor and a privilege. It is a way for me to give back to PSA and to share my knowledge, while providing an opportunity to learn and be inspired by the works of my peers.
