1st Place wins a ThinkTankPhoto Digital Holster 20 V2.0, a Holga Pinhole Camera and have your photo printed in large format for the ViewBug headquarters (a one in a lifetime opportunity to have your work shown to the best in the industry). Also, winner receives a full year upgrade or extension of a ViewBug PRO membership.
The Digital Holster 20 V2.0 is designed for regular size DSLRs such as the Canon 5D Mark II, 7D, and 60D or Nikon D700, D300s, and D7000. The shape of the bag conforms to the camera itself, with one straight side and one curved side. It can actually stand up by itself!
The Holga was originally created by Chinese designer T.M. Lee to provide a camera for the working class. Little did he know it would be taken up by artists and creatives the world over for its broad, expressionistic capabilities—the softness of the images, vignetting, and random light leaks create beautiful dream-like photographs. Featuring two film masks—for either 6x6 or 6x4.5 centimeter photos—a permanent bulb setting for long exposure, this Holga pinhole camera is a ‘lensless’ design with a pinhole aperture that produces an infinite depth of field.

Born in the UK , Dan took a gap year in Whistler, British Columbia after high-school which planted the seed for a mountain obsession. While his passion for mountain life took a backseat as he finished a degree in Aerospace Engineering in England, it wasn’t long before he returned to the mountains to start his photography business.
Dan is a senior photographer for the Canadian ski magazine Skier and his work has also been featured in ski and snowboard magazines from Japan to Canada and everywhere in between as well as innumerable commercial campaigns for an ever widening list of clients which includes top ski resorts such as Whistler Blackcomb, and outdoor sports companies such as Salomon and Oakley.
