Announcing The Worldwide Photo Walk’s Inaugural Youth Category Winner

It’s official, and we have an awesome winner in our first-ever Youth Category Competition for the worldwide photo walk.

Without further ado, congratulations to our winner, 15-year-old Davey Thrasher from the Marietta, Ohio, USA Photo Walk:

My Comments: I think this is such a well executed shot on so many levels. I love the use of a very shallow depth of field, and the leading lines draw you into the photograph. I think the low perspective helps this image big time, and the post-processing is subtle but very effective. Such a nicely crafted image. Nicely done!

As our Youth Category winner, Davey will receive:

  • Canon EOS Rebel SL2 EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 Kit
  • Canon Pixma Pro 10 Printer
  • $50 B&H Photo Gift Card
  • ThinkTank Photo Trifecta 10 DSLR Backpack
  • $100 Westcott Gift Certificate
  • Platypod Ultra
  • Full year of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan
  • and a Full year of KelbyOne membership

Congratulations to Davey, our first official Youth Catagory Competition Winner!

Big thanks to our friends at Canon USA, our Platinum Sponsor for providing such awesome main prizes, and for their support and enthusiasm throughout.  High five and many thanks to our Photo Walk official sponsors: B&H Photo, Think Tank Photo, FJ Westcott, Platypod, Drobo, and Adobe. We feel very blessed to have such great folks supporting the walk in this way.

On Monday we’ll be wrapping up this year’s Photo Walk with a look at our fundraising results for the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya. 

Have a great weekend everybody – hope you get some great shots out there. :)



P.S. I hope to meet some of you in person next Wednesday in San Diego at my Lightroom seminar there. If you want to come out and spend the day with me, it’s not too late.
