At the nascence of my photographic journey, various mentors encouraged me to get my work in front of the right people and that contests have helped launch the careers of many of the top pros in the industry. I took their advice to heart and have worked vigorously ever since to submit my work to renowned contests. This image, created in the Nevada desert, is one of the award winners of the 17th Annual Photo Contest of National Geographic Traveler. See the feature here and read the accompanying description below:
"Catherine Hall was traveling in the Nevada desert when she met a man who was doing yoga in a tent. 'His white, sand-covered feet had an amazing contrast against his dark skin.' Hall, an assistant for professional photographers, says everyone in the tent thought she was crazy when she lay down to get the shot."
