ThinkDero in Little Rock, Arkansas
Judging this year’s competition is Dero Sanford. A professional photographer specializing in custom advertising work, he owns ThinkDero, Inc. in Little Rock.
Sanford loves adventure, photography, good film, and spending his days with his son, Solomon. Having graduated from Oklahoma State University, Okmulgee, with a degree in photography, he quickly found himself immersed in the advertising scene. Working for various magazines, agencies, and companies he began to build an impressive client base. He is very personable, and his passion for fun, painless photography can be seen in all of his work.
When asked about what he might be looking for in a winning piece, Sanford said, “I love the story of a photograph. Figuring out the why and how the photographer chose his subject, light, composition, timing and other elements are all part of the interpretation of the story that was captured.”
