Huge thanks to everyone who came out to our Santa Monica photowalk last Friday, we're so glad to have met you! Now for those of you who didn't get to come, we've got another event coming up: we're going to have a bonfire at Dockweiler! There's no better way for us to get to know one another than to huddle around a campfire while stuffing our faces with hot dogs and s'mores while singing Kumbaya (kidding - or am I?). Be sure to check out the Facebook event and RSVP.
We've also just announced a huge photo contest with prizes sponsored by Lowepro! If you're a fan of shooting landscapes, be sure to submit your best photo to the album on Facebook titled Photo Challenge: Landscape. The deadline to submit is October 16th at 11:59 PST and we're limiting submissions to only one per person. Images should be recent (preferably taken sometime since the beginning of the semester) in hopes of getting everyone to go out and explore!
Be sure to use the coupon code USC20 to receive 20% off your purchase of Lowepro and Joby products!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for any additional updates and details!
