Win a Canon 5DMII from Adorama!!!

J
D and I are meeting with our accountant this week for...wait for it...taxes. While this is normally a lackluster moment for any business owner, I definitely use as leverage for emotional purchases. In the midst of preparing our financial records, I'll usually point out that I should've invested in gear for more write-offs and JD will absentmindedly nod his head...which I'll interpret as free reign to buy new gear (ladies, you can thank me for this technique later). I'm excited because I'm buying the new Canon 5DMIII from Adorama...but this news gets even BETTER...because...

Adorama is sponsoring one of the biggest giveaways this blog has ever seen! Yes, one lucky winner will score so much swag JD even wants to enter the contest to keep my spending at bay!

If you'd like to be entered to win a...
* Canon 5DMII with a Canon EF 24-105L Image Stabilized Lens
* Think Tank Photo Roller Luggage
* SanDisk 16G Extreme Pro CF card
* SanDisk 8G Memory Vault
{that's almost $3,500 in gifts!)
...then feel free to sign up on Adorama.com. There you'll be entered for this giveaway and even if you don't win, another lucky Adorama contestant will win $200 to spend that month (it'll automatically sign you up for both contests when registering).


The deadline to enter is THIS Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 9pm EST and the winner will be picked on Monday...I'll do a End Zone Dance right along with you. Well, really, just because I like dancing.

I'm terribly excited for what's in store and I hope it's the start of amazing things in 2012! If you'd like to see my entire gear set-up, you can feel free to check out this blog post for more details.

Happy Tuesday!
