A dream photo workshop to the Galapagos Islands!

Many businesses are using Facebook contests to increase their status and likes on Facebook. In 2012 I was lucky enough to win a few things including a $500 Shopping Spree at Mike's Camera in Boulder, and a full licensed copy of Adobe Photoshop CS6 ($699 value).

So another photographer, Muench Workshops, is running a contest giving away a photography workshop in the Galapagos Islands! It's always been a dream of mine to get there and as a people photographer, I love going on vacation and photo workshops to do something completely different - nature and landscape photography!

To ENTER click on this link to Muench Workshop's Facebook Page by January 30th:

and you'll need to like their Facebook Page as well as entering your name, email address, and a link to a photo website of yours. The website can be as simple as a Flickr or Shutterfly account or your Facebook page with photos.

The Galapagos Islands is a Province of Ecuador located 500 miles west of the Ecuadorian coast. They lie directly on the equator. Temperatures range from 70 to 84 degrees year round. Photographers love the Galapagos Islands for nature and wildlife including: sea lions, frigate birds, gulls, blue-footed boobies, marine & land iguanas, giant tortoises, hawks, and all kinds of marine life! There are a variety of photography workshops offered there including:

What do you think? Doesn't it look like an experience of a lifetime that I should go on? Or maybe you should go on?

Happy New Year! Photos of the Year 2012

It's a great exercise for us photographers to look over the past year and select favorite photos... there are a lot of factors that make up "favorite photos." They are often not the most technically correct, but sometimes they just tug on heartstrings, convey a moment in time, include a favorite person in our life or remind of us something special! How hard it is to choose a handful of favorites out of the hundreds of thousands of photos I take each year? What a great job I have!
