SEATTLE, September 8, 2015 – Southern California based photographer Anne Watson has been announced as winner of the “Capture the Moment” International photo competition hosted by Zooppa and Lindsay California Olives. Her winning photo, Happy Birthday Hedgehog, features an adorable hedgehog made from toothpicks full of cheddar cheese and olives at a children’s birthday party. Anne’s photograph was selected out of over 500 submissions from around the world.
Anne is a graduate of Pepperdine University and currently runs her own photography business with offices in Orange County and San Diego. Her passion is food photography, and her career background has led her to combine her enthusiasm for cuisine with her love for photography. Anne’s unique perspective on food allows her to tell the story of a dish, show her passion for the craft, and her photos always look appetizing. When away from the camera lens, Anne has another full-time role as a mother and stepmother and lives with her husband on a ranch in North San Diego County.
Photos were submitted in three categories, Cooking & Eating, Special Occasions, and Family & Friends with Anne’s winning photo coming from the Special Occasions category. The over 500 submissions, including other winners, are available for viewing on the Zooppa website.
