Veazey finished in second place behind the venerable Wendell Powell Studio.

Additionally, Veazey teaches photography workshops and classes for the University of Richmond School of Professional and Continuing Studies and for Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. He also provided pro bono photography services to several non-profit organizations including the World Pediatric Project and the Cameron Gallagher Foundation (SpeakUp 5K).

In a comment provided to several colleagues, Veazey shared his gratitute: “I’m overwhelmed and humbled to receive this honor and recognition — to be #2 behind Wendell Powell… they have been providing remarkable photography for 75 years — is amazing. Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.”
