Dale Niles is Having a Wonderful 2017, and It's Still Only December!

Fayette County, GA-based photographer Dale Niles (see image above) is having a wonderful 2017. 

Niles' photograph Pardon? (see image above) received the People's Choice award, as well as Third Prize overall at this year's Slow Exposures show in Concord, GA.   

She also received honorable mention in the International Photography Awards competition, in the fine art collage category.

She also had her work included in the Lensculture Emerging Talent Competition Gallery; in Rfotofolio's Depth of Field exhibition at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, CA; and in the Southeast Center for Photography exhibition Other Worlds.

Among Niles' other awards this year include First Prize for work in the Summer Vacation show at the Santa Fe Photographers Gallery; a Gold Award from the Moscow International Foto Awards; second place in the L.A.

Niles also had work in a Duo show with Donna Rosser at the Lamar Arts Center in Barnesville, GA and in a solo show at the Rankin Gallery in Columbus, GA. 

She also had work in the Summer Show at the SXSE Gallery, in Molena, GA; in the Atlanta Photography Group shows in Atlanta;and in Puppy Love, a show at the Hathaway Gallery in Atlanta held to benefit charities that support rescued dogs.

Now, I'm confident this is a partial list of Niles' achievements this year, but even on this evidence, its been an exceptional year for her. 

And, who knows, we have 4 weeks of December still to go. 

Congratulations to Dale Niles for all this fine recognition -- The Southern Photographer looks forward to hearing of even more good news in the months and years ahead.
