Dutch Doscher/Judge People & Portraits 2012 MPA
The People/Portraits category garnered the most submissions of any category during the 2011 Mobile Photo Awards. This year, it’s well on its way to receiving the most entries yet again. Photographs of people are probably everybody’s favorite to shoot and to view. There is something about a set of eyes, the human form, and human activity that always appeals to viewers and shooters. People and portraits are as affecting today as they were when photography began over 160 years ago. We are pleased to have as our lead judge in this category the inimitable Dutch Doscher.
Dutch Doscher is a Freelance Director of after school specials, music videos and short films, for clients including Deloitte, Pfizer, National Geographic, HCCS, Sunburst and Prentice Hall.
He began his career as a Casting Director and soon expanded his horizons to begin directing and making films. His love and talent for photography is a natural extension of his film making prowess.
Dutch’s mobile photography images have appeared in galleries, newspapers and magazines around the world.
While he excels at portraiture, his travels have also inspired him to create images of waterscapes from around the United States, and he has particular affection for the ponds and streams of his native Connecticut.
His street portraits and candids are remarkable examples of the spontaneity and stealth of mobile phone photography.
