Local photographer’s image wins Masters Cup nomination
A photo taken by Amy Timacheff, of Tiger Mountain Photo, was nominated for the Fifth Annual Photography Masters Cup.
In April, Amy and her husband Serge traveled to Jordan as official photographers for the International Fencing Federation at the Junior & Cadet World Championships 2011. Her image “Fencers Jump in Jordan” was of junior fencers Philip Marsh, of Great Britain, and Alaa El Din Fayz, of Egypt, competing in the gold-medal match for junior men’s individual epee.
The photo was one of 11,321 entries from 83 countries and was just one of 272 honored, hers winning Nominee in Sport.
“As a surprise to me, Serge entered this image into the Masters Cup,” Amy Timacheff said. “We love working together and traveling the world capturing images, not only for the world of fencing, but also for our vast artwork collection.”
