I would like to win Photographing the World 3 with Elia Locardi because I would like to improve in this area and Elia is an amazing photographer and teacher.

I would gladly like to win the Intro to Lightroom: The Ultimate Crash Course. I haven’t had the chance to do my editing on Lightroom nor do I have the software, but I know I will be eventually using it.

I thought everyone's work was truly amazing! Would love to have Mike Kelley's WAMA 1 please!

I'd love Monte Isom's Making Real Money: The Business of Commercial Photography. We could all use any education at any time, but business education from someone who's done it is priceless.
