An Insider's Guide to Portrait Simple

We need your vote!


It’s our turn to get in front of the camera!
Since employees are not allowed to enter the official father’s day prop contest, we decided to run a special contest just for our own photographers. We gave them until the end of May to bring in their own props: some stuck with the Father’s day theme, some brought in items that represent their own personal lives; some dressed up in costumes and some even brought in their loved ones. But we need YOUR help with awarding the prize!
All of these fantastic entries are shown below and labelled with the photographer pictured. Click on an image to view it larger, or start with the first and scroll through as a slideshow. To vote, leave a comment on this blog post naming your favorite. Be sure and leave your own information because we’re giving YOU a prize, too! Once the contest is closed, we’ll randomly select three voters and give them each a free 8×10.
Voting is open now through Wednesday at midnight (June 6 2012). May the best prop win!
