In our modern era, life in the countryside has become an ultimate fantasy. In real life as in these romantic daydreams, the country offers the best of both worlds, the beauty of the wilderness merged with the comforts of civilization. As we move further from the pastoral life and into a metropolitan one, photographs of country living are all the more potent, serving as a reminder of the way things once were and could be again. We’re looking for your photographic interpretations of country living, captured everywhere from upstate New York to the rolling hills of Cumbria, England.
Our judge for this group show will be Keren Sachs, Director of Content Development for Offset, a new collection of high-end stock imagery, curated from artists all over the world. Before joining Offset, Sachs worked as a Director of Photography at Martha Stewart Living, Photo Editor at National Geographic Society, and Creative Manager at Williams-Sonoma.
All submitting photographers will be considered to join Offset’s curated collection of award-winning and high end photography. One selected photographer will also receive a GoPro Hero4 Black. All selected photos will run on the Feature Shoot website and be promoted through our social media channels. Copyright remains with the photographer.
To submit, email up to five images (620 pixels wide on the shortest side, saved for web, no borders or watermarks) titled with your name and the number of the image (ex: yourname_01.jpg) to fsgroupshow (at) gmail (dot) com with “Country Living” in the subject line. Please include your full name, website and image captions detailing the titles/locations of the photographs within the body of the email.
The deadline for submissions is January 9, 2015.
