We just gave away a Vanguard GH-100 Pistol Grip Ball Head, and now it’s time to give this bad boy to some lucky winner.  Behold, the Think Tank Urban Disguise 40 v2 camera bag.  It’s an awesome camera bag that converts to a messenger style bag with tons of pockets and compartments to store all of your gear.  I have been using Think Tank bags and organizers for about a year now, and I am a big fan of many of their products.  You can find out more about Think Tank and this bag on the Think Tank website, and be sure to follow Think Tank on Twitter (@thinkTANKphoto).  All you have to do to enter is ReTweet our contest tweet with #keatley on Twitter.  You will be automatically entered to win!  The winner will be randomly selected tomorrow, January 19th at 4pm.  Be sure to check back tomorrow to see if you won.  We also have 2 more great prizes we will be giving away on Twitter and Facebook tomorrow, so even more reason to check back.

Free Think Tank Shoulder Camera Bag

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under Contest

I hope everyone is enjoying warmer weather and the excitement of summer, or the idea of summer depending on where you live.  I am in a really good mood because I have been outside enjoying the sun for the past few weeks, and I thought it would be fun to do another giveaway.  How about a new camera bag?  I will be giving away a brand new Think Tank Retrospective 20 shoulder camera bag which is pictured above.  It’s a beautiful bag and is really comfortable and functional.  If you would like to enter to win the bag, simply retweet one of my contest tweets during the next week on my Twitter stream.  Or you can tweet this line, “Win a new @thinkTANKphoto camera bag from @johnkeatley – http://bit.ly/kSKwXc. Retweet by 6/24/11 to enter. #KeatleyContest”. Contest ends June 24th, and the winner will be announced Monday June 27th.

Good luck.

Liberia Contest

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under Contest

I give up.  Jet lag doesn’t usually get the best of me, but here I am wide awake at 2:30 in the morning.  Actually being awake at 2:30 am isn’t that big of a deal for me, but the problem this time is I just woke up after sleeping for the past 8 hours.  I have a feeling getting back into a Pacific Time rhythm is going to be difficult.
I just realized, many of you probably have no idea what I am talking about.  I suppose if you haven’t been on my Twitter feed or Facebook Page you may be out of the loop.  Yesterday, I ended a 10 day trip to Liberia with 32 straight hours of traveling.   It’s good to be home to say the least.  I had an amazing time, met some wonderful people and saw a part of the world I had never been to before.  It was quite a learning experience, and I want to thank MiiR Bottles for working with me on this project.  I will have a lot more to say and show in the weeks and months to come, but that is not why I am writing now.

Before I left for Liberia, I started a fun contest on Twitter and I want to extend it to everyone who reads my blog as well.  It’s very simple.  Guess how many pictures I took in Liberia. The person with the closest guess will receive a free print from my trip.   One guess per person, and I will only accept guesses left as a comment on this blog post, on Twitter (@johnkeatley) or on my Facebook Page.  I am looking for the total number of shots.  I shot for 6 1/2 days, and I used my Canon 5D Mark II and Hasselblad H3DII.  I will stop taking guesses on the 21st of January at noon PST.  If the winner Likes this post on Facebook and or guesses the EXACT number correctly there will be a bonus prize.  Good luck!  Start posting your guesses.
