Westcott is proud to announce the winners of the Photoshop World Vegas Shootout

TOLEDO, OH – November 11, 2010 – Westcott is proud to announce our Top 3 Winners from Photoshop World (PSW) Vegas 2010. With over 800 entries submitted, Westcott enlisted the help of a panel of Top Pro Photographers to select the winners. Winners are being awarded equipment from the shootout booth totaling over $10,000.

Our first place winner is Regina Pagles. Her father introduced her to photography at a young age she began editing using the first version of Adobe® Photoshop®. Mrs. Pagles now photographs everything from portraits to landscapes. As she grows as a photographer she hopes to one day possess a ‘style’ she can call her own. To this day, she credits her inspiration to her father. She was quoted about PSW 2010 saying “My sincerest thanks to Westcott, for providing me (and others) the opportunity to use their products and opening my eyes to the world of lighting.”

Our second place winner is Corey (Hale) Ransberg. Mr. Ransberg has been a photographer for 4 years and with a focus on live music events, portraits, weddings, as well as freelances for Spin, Alternative Press, and Guitar World Magazine. He currently works at Lincoln University of Missouri focusing on both photo and video for the research and cooperative extension area. When asked about his experience at PSW Vegas, he said “It was really great to try out some products with Westcott right there to answer questions…that was a big help for me.”

Our third place winner is Laura McClure. She has been a photographer since 2003. Mrs. McClure shoots mainly animals, but has recently started shooting portraits and working with models. She is learning how to incorporate Adobe® Photoshop® to make visual art. She believes her photography is more about creating an image and bringing it to life. “I am new to studio photography and lighting…the booth was one of my favorite things at PSW 2010. The lighting was amazing and from any angle I was able to get a great shot,” said Mrs. McClure.
