Outstanding Photography Judges:
Rose Photography in the Pacific Southwest District
Photography in the Pacific Southwest District of the ARS has come a long way in being an integral part of most rose shows. There are beautiful photographic displays of roses at almost every show, and these rose photos are judged for excellence and composition - the same thing we see for Rose Horticulture and Rose Arrangements at each rose show.
I put together an informational and hopefully educational document to help our local
members with their rose photography so they can enter their photos in upcoming rose
shows and for their personal photography experience. These are just basic helpful hints
rose photographers can use right away to improve the quality of the photos and rose show presentations.

district are taking.
Please send some of your beautiful rose photos to me at and include a little information about
the photos including the name of the rose, type of camera, and any special photo editing techniques you used. There
are so many ways you can be creative with a camera - especially with beautiful roses. We hope to see you at the next rose show. If you have questions about rose photography, call me at 505-988-4614
