Local photographer wins national award
Corpus Christi portrait photographer Raymond Gray of Gray Photography has earned a Platinum Level “Photographer of the Year” Award from the Professional Photographers of America. Gray will be honored at PPA’s annual convention, Imaging USA, in Nashville, Tenn., in January. Gray received this honor by winning a national merit award for all four of his entries.
Gray’s award-winning photographs came from a variety of assignments this past year: “A Slower Pace” was taken in Venus Italy; “My Lucerne, My Town” was captured while documenting the heart of Europe; “Mi Lugar” and “Faith and Perseverance” were recorded while in San Miguel, Mexico.

His studio does amazing work, and we love to work events with them.
While shooting wedding video, we get the opportunity to work with a lot of photographers in the Corpus Christi area. Unfortunately, these photographers try to knock the work of Gray Photography. Well to all the naysayers out there here is a question for you; “Did you get a national award for meriting on four prints at nationals this year?” I didn’t think so. We would like to congratulate Raymond Gray for his award this year. Keep up the good work in 2010.
Just my two cents,
