Thank you again to everyone who had a hand in or participated in the Black Hills Photo Shootout over the last two years. When Scott Howard came up with the idea I knew it was a good one. With 120 people attending in 2010 and 141 this year from 20 states and Canada, I think we were right.
From the start the intention was to get the ball rolling and then hand the event over to someone else who could keep the momentum going. We are happy to say that has happened with Les Voorhis and Jason Hahn taking the reins through their Outdoor Photo Workshops.
Les and Jason have been instructors for workshop sessions during the Shootout both years and understand the purpose and intent of the event. They plan to continue working closely with Black Hills State University as the Shootout moves into the future. I'm excited to see how things evolve and continue my participation in the Shootout.
Here are few more of the photos I made during the Shootout weekend this year.
