Hello, fine blog friends. Here is our next batch of winners who are getting a free photo shoot by a photographer in their neck of the woods! Most of you know what’s going on with this Big Photography Giveaway. In case you don’t, click on the big orange block at right to get the scoop.
A quick reminder on a few important notes:
1. Most photographers have offers for everyone, even if you’re not the winner. So read closely if there is a photographer listed in your area.
2. Photographers chose the winners. Many of them chose by reading all the comments and many chose in a completely random drawing kind of way because it was too hard to choose.
3. If you are a winner, it is up to you to contact the photographer this week, or the photographer has the right to choose another winner. Need their email address? Do a search for your state or their name at right. Every photographer’s email address is listed in their post.
4. One more week of this Big Photography Giveaway! Be sure to check back daily to see if there is a photographer in your area (and to gain really great inspiration). And then … it’s back to regular blogging!
