COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

On the eve of the big game, a local UGA graduate is just learning about a couple of big honors.

Photographer John Pyle in Columbus, known for his top-notch senior shoots, has been picked to be in the Bulldog 100, the top hundred businesses in the nation run by Georgia alums.

He heads to Atlanta in January to find out where his business ranks. Two of the teenagers he photographs learned Friday afternoon they both won the Senior Ignite Modeling contests, two out of 25 in the nation.

WTVM surprised the girls with the news today.

 "It takes 100% of me and 100% of my wife to do it," said Pyle. "It's a blessing because I get to create, I have freedom to create and I get to connect with people."

Columbus High Senior Mallory See and Northside High Senior Madeline Jane Irvin will head to San Diego next year as national modeling contest winners. Congratulations to them and Pyle!
