[Contest] Win a Lowepro Bag on Facebook

Last week we announced a contest on our Facebook sponsored by our friends over at Lowepro. It was only supposed to last one week, but we decided that we would show a little New Year’s generosity and extend it an additional week. That means you can still enter to win an awesome Lowepro Pro Messenger 160 AW simply by telling us what style of bag is your favorite over at the Fstoppers Facebook page. Just click the contest tab and submit your answer.

Enter now by clicking here. All entries must be received by January 3! Good luck!

[BTSV] Contest Entry: The Creek (dedication/party geekness)

With less than a week to go, the Fstoppers 2011 Behind the Scenes Contest is quickly drawing to an end. So, we are spending a lot more time looking over and posting user submissions. This latest entry may not have the best final image out there but I really dig the adventurous/road trip vibe. And what really got me was recognizing myself in the final seconds of the video. You know what I’m talking about… being hunched over your laptop, running through your selection process, while the party rages on around you. It’s never very hard to spot the photo geek in a crowd. Best of luck Matthew. Last minute reminder: $21,000 worth of gear is nothing to sneeze at so get those contest entries in damn it. tick, ticK TICK!



[BTSV] Contest Entry: Transcend (informative/entertaining)

“The last thing we want to see is another music video.” “The last thing we want to see is another music video.” “The last thing we want to see is another music video.” No matter how many times we say it, we get submission after submission of uninformative videos where people take some footage, drop in some music and send it along. Not the case with Caleb’s first ever BTS video where he shows you, in painstakingly long detail, how he got his ethereal final image. He even made me chuckle a bit but lied to me when he said “…the next ten minutes.”, cause this vid is 32 minutes long. :) Get those contest entries in kids.



[BTS Video] Contest Entry: a bottle of cold water (product shot)

As more and more jobs pop up for product shooting here in NYC I find myself needing to seriously update my portfolio. Which must be why this latest contest entry from Rui Antunes caught my eye. It’s a simple video, that lacks a bit in the way of entertainment value but makes up for it in educational value and a pretty decent final image. Good luck Rui. And remember folks, you only have about a week to get your contest entries in.

[Contest] And The Winner Of The Fstoppers Christmas Twitter Contest Is…

I am happy to announce that the random winner for our Christmas Twitter contest is Seagram Pearce. After randomly picking his “tweet” I headed over to his website to find that Seagram is a photographer that seems to shoot just about anything and he does it all very well . Seagram’s studio is based in Cape Town, South Africa which I hope won’t cause us any shipping issues because he is now the proud owner of a brand new iPad 2 and our new DVD Peter Hurley: The Are Behind The Headshot.

I’m thrilled that we have had another great photographer win one of our contests. If you happen to be Seagram, send us an email at contactfstoppers@gmail.com and we will figure out how to get you your prizes.

Head over to Twitter and tweet him your congratulations

[Contest] Facebook Group Photoshop Contest Results

Last month, we put up a copy of our brand new DVD, The Art Behind the Headshot up for grabs to the person who could impress Lee with their Photoshop skills. Entrants had to submit one file with both a before and after photo together to our Facebook Group.

[Contest] FS Forums Westcott Self Portrait Photo Contest Results

This past month, we tasked you Fstoppers with entering your best self portrait for a chance to win a brand new Westcott Apollo Orb. Self portraits are understandably hard to judge, but I based my considerations on three aspects: 1) Well lit; 2) Concept well executed; 3) The photo tells me something about the photographer.
There were many quality entries and I really enjoyed going through them. Thank you everyone who entered, as it proves what a solid group of photographers we have here.

Check the full post to see the winner and the runners up.
