So, Mike, I hope the Photography Bay Swag Bag helps to build your business and passion even more.  If anyone wants to congratulate Mike, feel free to drop a comment below or look him up him on his Flickr account.

For everyone else who entered, stay tuned.  We’ll be giving away more photography goodies soon. I’ve already had several companies contact me with an interest in being part of the next Swag Bag.

If you make or sell photo gear or products and want to be a sponsor for the next Swag Bag, shoot me an email at
