Pursue Pictures Fall Adventures Giveaway with Peak Design!

Built from the ground up as a Kickstarter campaign, Peak Design employs the philosophy of crowdfunding in a way that has brought them “the most passionate, loyal, straight-up stoked customers in the world. The funds we raise in our campaigns allow us to focus on our customers and products, and not on achieving growth goals that traditional investors often demand.” Their work in the photography community goes hand in hand with what we are doing here at Pursue Pictures : creating an environment to enable and support emerging artists.


Now what you’ve all been waiting for: the giveaway.

Thanks to our friends at Peak Design, we are pleased to offer a random drawing for two pieces of gear to all Fall Adventures submitters. Winners will receive either the Everyday Pack – 20L or The Bread N Butter Carry Pack.

So don’t delay! “Fall Adventures” is open to submissions through December 6 at midnight PST. We can’t wait to see your work!

Winner Profile – Eric Davidove

Eric bought a camera and roamed around the streets of San Francisco making photos after an unexpected layoff from his job.  He was looking for a healthy and creative distraction from the challenging and anxious job searching experience.  Street photography quickly became his default style as he wanted to focus on people and their life moments while putting his unemployment challenge in a broader context.  Making street photos helped Eric be present in the moment while helping him see and better understand the irony, humor, sadness, and challenges of living and connect with people whom he may previously have ignored.

Many of Eric’s photos have fared well in juried competitions as well as being featured in magazines.  Below are some of his 2018 accomplishments:018 juried competition accomplishments are:

  • First place, Production Paradise Spotlight Awards, Shot on Mobile Competition
  • Third place, San Francisco International Street Photography Festival, Streets of San Francisco Competition
  • Third Place, International Photography Awards, Social Cause Competition
  • Honorable Mention, New York Center for Photographic Art, Summer Exhibition
  • Finalist in the Urban 2018 Exhibition, Camera USA Exhibition, Mnemonic International Photo Exhibition, Annual Street Shooting Around the World Exhibition, Americana Exhibition, and Portrait International Photography Exhibition

Eric looks forward to becoming a member of a respected photography collective while showing his work in galleries and continuing to shoot editorial assignments.
