After a career in engineering and education, I discovered what my life was about: family and wedding photojournalism. I decided I had to learn from the best, which is why I participated Foundation Workshop. Praised for my critical attitude and teaching abilities and frequently awarded by Fearless Photographers and the Masters of Dutch Wedding Photography, I want to use my knowledge and experience to judge this wonderful contest.

Sabina Mladin, Sabina Mladin Photographer, Arad, Romania

I've been photographing weddings for 5 years, I love people and emotions and I'm in love with beautiful feelings, that I like to capture with my camera.

Wolfgang Rada, orange-foto, Vienna, Austria

Born in Vienna, in 1969, raised in Germany but back in Austria and located in Vienna again. My first paid job as a professional photographer, more than twelve years ago, was a wedding. I stuck to it till these day and it is still my first love. From then on I shot far more than 300 weddings, worked in many beautiful locations on 4 continents and won 19 international wedding photography awards. I would describe my photography style as photojournalistic, bright, colorful and bold. On the wedding day  I love to shoot all the little things and these brief and fast passing moments that make every wedding so special. I am grateful to be trusted by so many brides and grooms and do not want to miss one single wedding. Personally I have been described by my lovely brides as funny, easy going, soothing, patient and unobtrusive but also persistent and determined (although my girlfriend always say they must speak about another person).
