Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing people and patterns in the Patterns And People Photo Contest in collaboration with friend and professional photographer David Beckstead and our friends at Spider Holster!

David was named “The Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World” by American Photo magazine - March 2007 David is truly a mountain man at heart! He has traveled to over 80 countries and almost every state in the US. He has hiked thousands of miles of backcountry, including above the base camp of Mt. Everest. He was one of the first registered trackers for Arizona Search and Rescue. He worked for the US Forest Service for 12 summers as a Hotshot firefighter fighting fires around the US and Canada, all the while carrying a Nikon SLR with a 50 mm 1.8 lens. David is a fine art watercolor painter and lover of all things artistic.
