To cap off the year, we asked our community members to submit and vote on their favorite photographs of 2020, and they did not disappoint! From food photography to fine-art portraits, they shared work that proves how deep the skill and talent runs in the PRO EDU family.

Of course there were so many gorgeous, thought provoking photos shared in the PRO EDU Facebook Community that it would be impossible to give each of them the attention they deserve, but these are a few of our favorites of 2020.

There were a few incredible shots that have already been shared in other blog posts, or have NSFW content we can't share on our blog, but we want to give a huge shoutout to Mike Christopherfor the gorgeous photos they submitted for the Best Of!

We couldn't be more proud of our members and the work they create, and everything they've learned from our incredible instructors. Here's to more growth in 2021. The sky is the limit!
