Hold onto your doobies, cannabis photography enthusiasts! The July 2023 photo contest winners have been chosen, and we’re excited to reveal the results. With three breathtaking entries from one talented contestant, we extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this contest special.
Now, let’s unveil the masterpieces!
Third Place: @siraynot
Tony Simonelli is no stranger to our Potography community. His passion and dedication to the craft are evident in his work with outdoor garden shots and live plant photography, and his entries have always caught our eye.
This month, his winning entry, High, presents a drone-captured view of an outdoor garden and highlights a well-organized and cared-for cultivation facility. The expert use of the drone and natural lighting gives viewers a rare glimpse into the kind of work it takes to produce the cannabis flowers we all enjoy.
Congrats, Tony! Now let’s move on to the second place winner…
Second Place: @siraynot
1000g THCa Diamond
Tony is not just a professional photographer but an artist who brings a unique perspective to cannabis photography. We know this is true when it comes to his live plant photography, and it’s also true with regard to his work with concentrates, diamonds, and extracts.
His winning entry, 1000g THC Diamond, features an absolutely massive THCa diamond being held carefully by a gloved technician. This thing looks like a giant quartz crystal, and it’s sometimes hard to believe something like this can be made from cannabis.
Aside from the mind-blowing size of the diamond, the visible details and textures, along with the perfect lighting, come together to create an image that’s as much art as it is photography.
