#52weeksofnature Photo Contest Week 14 Winner
The winner of Week 14 of our #52weeksofnature photo contest is Bowen Childs (@bowen.childs). A remote rugged coastline can deter most visitors, but sometimes capturing a truly unique image requires exploration and a bit of risk. Bowen has won a $100 gift code to hippytree.com and we are donating $100 to the Surfrider Foundation in his name. Learn more about Bowen below.
Where was the image shot?
Oregon Coast. I don't like giving out specific locations. I like to encourage people to go out and find places like these on their own!
What camera did you use and what were the settings?
Camera: Nikon D500
Lens: Sigma 18-35mm
Shutter Speed: 1/500'
How long have you been shooting?
About five to six years. I got into photography my senior year of high school shooting birds with my moms Canon EOS Rebel!
What's your camera of choice?
I shoot on a Nikon D500 but if I had a choice of any camera I would use a Sony A7rii.
What’s your favorite subject matter to shoot?
People and landscapes.
Do you shoot with a crew or shoot solo?
A little of both. I usually shoot with friends or try to collaborate with other creatives!
What excites you about photography?
I just love being out in nature, traveling and taking pictures of beauty! Whether people or the outdoors, seeing a smile on someone's face when they see an image of themselves or sharing my travels with friends. That's what fuels my passion!
