January Digest!

Hello everyone!

I hope you're nice and toasty compared to the past few weeks. Can you believe it? 2013 is done and we're looking at a brand new year filled with new adventures, new photographic endeavors and excitement for the things to come. Happy New Year's to everyone!

I'm trying to come up with a few fun places for us to shoot in the winter and when Spring hit, we will hit back with full photo force. I won't be around much over summer so I'll make sure we hit the city and our memory cards hard and fast as soon as things warm up. But in the mean time, winter may offer a few opportunities to shoot and enjoy. I don't want to torture anybody with the cold so our events will be spaced out in the coming weeks. That doesn't mean that we can't do opportunistic ice and snow shoots though, so pay attention for emails if the weather is looking like it'll help!

I wanted to share two things: A photo contest hosted by Outdoor Photographer Magazine and a link.

The contest is pretty self explanatory so here it is: https://app.mobilestorm.com/cp/onlinePreview.php?t=Mjk2M3wxNjkyMHxndXMucGhvdG9nQGdtYWlsLmNvbXw4MjM5MjZ8MjAzNTU5MzA1fDExMTU0MjA=

The second thing I wanted to share is a link I've had open in a tab in my browser for weeks now. I first saw these images at the National Geographic headquarters in DC and was pretty amazed by them. George Steinmetz took to the air to photograph the world's deserts and succeeded in capture some stunning photos of of the world's harshest, most remote locations. The NYTimes photo blog, Lens, did a piece on him: http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/13/floating-in-the-desert-air/?_r=3

Hope you enjoy the links and good luck if you decide to enter the contest!

See you guys very soon hopefully, best!

Gus
