Gulf Photo Plus Shootout: JoeyL, Zack Arias & Gregory Heisler

The above video is from Gulf Photo Plus 2011. In it, you’ll see JoeyL and Zack Arias going head-to-head in photo shootout, where each gets 20 minutes to photograph, edit and output an image of a subject they’ve never seen before. There’s also the nice bonus of Gregory Heisler dogging both contestants throughout their shoots.

Also check out Zack Arias’ post on his thought process during the shoot.  Good stuff Zack.
