I figured it was about time for another Lot116 contest! I asked around for what type of contest I should have this time and got lots of good ideas....but my favorite was one that my sister (go figure!) mentioned:
"How 'bout....find/suggest the most unique local location and win a shoot there!"
So here's the deal: By "location", this could mean pretty much ANYWHERE! Like....some hidden gem of a location (please, nothing that every photographer shoots at), a friend or family members home that is awesome, your backyard (huge bonus points would be a big tree with a tire or rope/board swing, cute treehouse, fort, etc), an amazing bathroom with an awesome bathtub (vintage clawfoot tub, or even a new tub that is just amazing), a gorgeous kitchen, bedroom, gorgeous pool, music room, kids playroom, your business location (Restaurant? Fire station? Sea World trainer? Disneyland employee?, Farm/Orchard?, etc), a secret little park that no one really knows about, etc. I'm also a sucker for vintage cars, pets, skateboards, etc as well...so those could count as extra bonus points. I am however a "natural light" photographer, so I prefer locations that get great natural light.
*NOT FROM SAN DIEGO?* - It's ok! Even if you are in another city/state, you can enter! You will still win a free session with me, BUT would have to pay for travel fees, etc. You would still win the $300-$350 (weekday/weekend) session fee, so that's a few hundred off of a shoot right there! :)
The WINNER would receive my "Basic Session Package" (worth $300 -$350!):
Basically i'm looking for something cool and unique! If you think you have the perfect "photo shoot spot", here's what you do:
1) Take 2-3 photos of the location(s). Yes, you can submit more than one location!
2) Email the photos (please make sure they aren't overly huge - to save my inbox haha) to firstname.lastname@example.org and add "Location contest" in the subject.
3) Let me know what area the location is (so that I know whether the location is in San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, etc).
4) Let me know the ages of any kids that would be in the shoot (and NO, you don't HAVE to have a kid to be in the shoot - this could be a couple, one person, engagement shoot, newborn shoot, etc)
The deadline for this contest is two weeks from today, so please email you entries NO LATER THAN MIDNIGHT on FRIDAY, MARCH 5th. The winner(s) (yep, who knows, maybe i'll pick more than one ;) hehe) will be announced on/around March 5th :) Good luck and feel free to spread the word!!!!! :)
