Megan won a very cool Nikon 1 J5 mirrorless camera and lens provided by Sports Shooter Academy 12 sponsor Nikon Professional Services.
Other Photo of the Day winners were Jeff Brown and Marty McCrory.
The Photo of the Day awards were sponsored by Think Tank Photo.
I could not put this workshop on with the help of a bunch of great friends who share my vision of giving a little something back:
Myung J. Chun
And this workshop would not be possible without the leadership and enthusiasm of Matt Brown.
Thanks to all of the SSA 12 sponsors:
Nikon Professional Services (Mark, Mike, Sara and Cpt. Ron)
Samy's Camera (sponsored the SSA 12 Open House --- Thanks Sam, Louis, Terry and Patrick)

The Sports Shooter Academy workshop is a labor of love for me and after each one people ask if I am tired and I always reply "No, I am inspired!"
