Welcome to my first official photography giveaway. My altruistic side has met my desire to explore new and exciting locations for outdoor photo shoots. I’m looking for places with great sight lines (no parking lots or cars in the background), and/or safe for kids to run around, options for shade, great textures (maybe a funky building?), not too crowded (pictures on the mall, for example, can be hard to get without other people in the background), perhaps a covered area in case of sudden rain, who knows! — make sure to “sell” your location with a description of why you think it’s great, and photos or links to websites about it (if you can’t get pictures, feel free to enter anyway!).
The winner (or winners?!) gets a free photo shoot at the winning location!
Email me about your favorite outdoor location for a photography shoot. For this contest, the location must be within about a 30 minute drive (mid-day, not rush-hour!) of Bethesda, MD. Don’t forget to make your case!
All submissions must be received by 11:59pm on April 9th (that’s a Friday, folks!).
The winner will be notified later in April (to allow time to visit these fantastic locations, if necessary!).
Judging: All judging will be done by yours truly. Yep, pretty subjective. Make your case strong!
The 1st place winner will receive a gift certificate for a free photography shoot. You may redeem this yourself by the end of 2010, or pass it along to a friend.
3 runners up will receive a credit for 2 5×7 prints (must be same photo) or 1 8×10.
Gift certificate details:
Good for one (1) free photography session, redeemable for children’s portraits (including newborns), maternity, senior portraits, or an engagement session at the winning location (see “session info” for standard description of a photo shoot and what it includes). That’s a $175.00 value — FREE to you, or fully transferable to a friend.
