Five Photographers Who Stepped Outside Their Comfort Zones

The entries are in from our #DitchComfort Photography Challenge, and we were truly blown away by the submissions, which came from all over the world! Fellow photographers have inspired me with their stories, their efforts to push their limits as people and as artists, and with the results of stepping outside of their comfort zones.

Congrats to our winner, Paul May, for winning the Grand prize of a 1-hour photography consultation and critique, and a copy of Summits & Starlight, and to our four special mentions (we couldn’t choose just three!), who will also receive a copy of the book. Thanks as well to everyone who decided to #DitchComfort and submit their photos. Some of you stepped outside your comfort zones just by entering, and I really appreciate the effort.
