Award Winning Photographs

Here are some places where you can find award winning photographs that were taken with the aid of IR Beam and Sound Triggering. You can do it too! Congratulations to all the winners.


1995 WildBird Photo Contest:

Grand Prize: Tom Webb, "Northern Waw-whet Owl returning to nest", used electric eye.


1994 Nation Wildlife Federation Photo Contest Dec/Jan 1995:

1st Place Wildlife: Derrick Hamrick "Flying Squirrel", Used IR Beam
Merit: Ed Erkes, "Paper Wasps", used IR Beam

Two of the eight pictures that won awards and were published this year were taken with IR Beam technology. Honestly, neither were taken with the Shutter-Beam, BUT both of Derrick and Ed have purchased the Shutter-Beam now that they know of its existence! Not bad ehhhh..
