Lion video, and I won the photo contest! :D

I just earned my first photography award ever... I was officially named the winner of the first-annual Woodland Park Zoo Calendar Cover Photo Contest, with my photo "Leonine Lovers" garnering 398 votes during the four day voting period on the zoo's Facebook site.  About 160 photos were submitted for this contest before they made a cut to the top 10 for the final voting. The next highest photo in the finals had 328 votes.

I will get my photo on the cover of about 40,000 calendars that will be shipped to zoo members this November, a gift card to the Zoo Store and a deluxe membership so i can take up to three people with me for free!  Yaaay!

There were a number of awesome photos that made the final 10 and I feel very fortunate and honored to have won this!

To celebrate, I've made another compilation video of the beautiful lions from Seattle's Award-winning Woodland Park Zoo, Hubert and Kalisa, this time set to music (yes, drowns out the annoying kids).  Includes a photo set of my best shots taken in the last year at the end.  Enjoy!
