in the outdoors
Before I became a
professional photographer, I found that the best
way to improve my skills was by doing. Books and
theory were all great but self-assignments gave
me a chance to push my limits and stretch my imagination.
We thought that bringing self-assignments to Outdoor
Adventure Canada would be fun.
To make it fair there
will be two divisionsone for hobbyists and
one for professionals. No prizes
rights and a chance to show off your work.
