Think Tank Photo Giveaway, Plus a Special Bonus

Think Tank Photo’s name perfectly reflects their company vision: To help photographers be ready before the moment, to travel easier, take pictures faster and be more efficient. It’s all about creating your vision.

We love the idea of clearing away annoyances and obstacles so you can focus on your photo. It’s a classic philosophy, one which prompted us to retire to our reading chairs, pour a brandy and pontificate the possibility of another giveaway.

Retropective 20. One Winner.

Think Tank will bestow this beautiful, rugged bag, the Retrospective 20, to one lucky photographer:

Think Tank and SmugMug Giveaway: Retrospective 20 camera bag

Relive the glory of photography masters like Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank with this vintage-inspired camera bag. Just add your own trusty tools and you’re ready to hit the streets and do some serious shooting.

Think Tank and SmugMug giveaway: Retrospective 20 camera bag

It’s perfect for photojournalists and travel photographers.  Here’s just a few reasons why:

  • Fits 1 pro size DSLR with up to a 70-200 f2.8 lens attached and 1 – 3 additional lenses.
  • Includes a seam sealed rain cover so you can shoot in any weather.
  • Hook and loop “Sound Silencers” eliminate noise and keep you stealthy.
  • Understated colors fit any occasion.

Check out their website for full specs and ideas on how to fill it.

(You’ll receive the Pinestone color pictured here. Camera not included, sorry!)

    I want to win this so bad.. As a college student studying photography and a cancer survivor much of my income goes to getting healthier and learning a skill that will provide me with a better future to take care of my future family.

    I love the water immensely; waterpolo, swimming, scuba, etc are all things that I love to do, because of this I chose a photo that stood out to me in my search for a great travel photograph that contained water.

    This just seems like something incredible to do, its almost like being in a whole new world down there and you are the outsider.

    Volcan Tavurvur in Rabaul, New Britain, Papua New Guinea that erupted in 1994 destroying Rabaul town. Standing on the volcanic ash photographing the still active volcano, it was humbling to be reminded that several feet under my feet a recently green, lush and lively town laid buried.

    The free drinks make you quite social, so here are two friends mingling at one of the early day parties. It’s not traditional travel scenery, but it makes me smile. :)

    One that I love is from when I recently traveled back to the UK. The cabbie had been paid a flat rate, but thought I would love this small village, so he pulled off of the motorway for me to be able to get out, stretch my legs for a few minutes and take some pictures before we continued on our way.

    Favorite travel photo? I guess this is my most recent favorite http://www.flickr.com/photos/21925057@N03/6098768526/in/photostream . It was taken in late August near Grinnell Glacier in Glacier National Park.

    The Old Tithe Barn, near Bradford-on-Avon, along the Kennet & Avon Canal, in west Wiltshire, England. Walked here from Bath (Somerset), the whole area is impossibly picturesque.

    Favorite vacation. I only had a 1.3 Megapixel point and shoot at the time. I want to go back to get some better pics. This is the top of Mauna Kea in Hawaii in May. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-J2T5O2I4MK8/TpjRlsOGzII/AAAAAAAACdU/aP5_PSy7BMk/s800/P1000321.JPG

    Hmm, tough to pick just one favorite vacation photo…

    There’s sneaking across private property to see Maui’s only red sand beach (Kai-halulu Beach): http://500px.com/photo/1172112

    Or getting up really early to drive to the top of the 10,000 foot volcano (Hale-a-ka-lā) in Maui: http://500px.com/photo/1157703

    Or a recent trip to Yosemite where an early morning granted calm waters on the Merced River and gorgeous colors at Cathedral Beach (we also saw a young bear run through the picnic area): http://500px.com/photo/1265492

    Or, there is always the opportunity for a stay-cation to catch a nap with the cat: http://500px.com/photo/1157705

    Most of my favorite travel pics were taken when I was still shooting film. I still need to transfer over to digital. but this is a beautiful location in Virginia, where I get to go every now and again to visit my sister. http://jenniferowensphotography.smugmug.com/Portfolio/Slideshow/family-va/964489721_MsArL-L.jpg

    My go-to locale any time of the year ~ Carrizo Plain National Monument. I don’t consider myself a landscape photographer, but you’d never know with these photos. Most people think it’s a desolate place, but you really have to take a second and really look.
    on of my faves ~
