The Gift of Encouragement

December 1, 2009 | Category: Doing Good

Atlanta based music photographer Zack Arias and a few of his high profile buddies are playing Santa this year by giving away 10 VERY sweet gift packages full of goodies designed to encourage a budding photographer.

The catch is that this gift is not for you. The gifts are for you to wrap up and give to a photographer you know that could use a little encouragement. All Zack is asking you to do is to tell their story in 750 words or less and send it to

Winners will receive the following:

1 year membership to

6 month membership to ShootQ

VisionMongers by David duChemin

The Moment it Clicks by Joe McNally

Trade Secret Cards by Chase Jarvis

Location Lighting with Drew Gardner DVD

Sessions with Joey L DVD

Better Business Practices for Photographers by John Harrington

OneLight DVD

That brings the retail value for each package to $1,100 plus change.

For more information please go to Be sure to pass it forward… tweet it… facebook it… you know what to do.

Good luck. I’ll be submitting my entry tomorrow. I know a young photographer that could use some encouragement from someone other than her father ;-) .

    I’m nominating a friend too. But half the stuff in that package is on my Christmas list. I wonder if I win it for my friend if it would be in poor taste to watch/read it all before wrapping it. LOL

    I have a few of those items myself, but I wouldn’t mind taking a peek through Drew Gardners DVD for sure! I say it wouldn’t be a crime to just look ;-)
