Below are the results and links for the ICF Pro-Am. 1st and 2nd Places was won by Houston Camera Exchange customers and of the 18 participants, 16 were Houston Camera Exchange customers. We are so proud!
“ICF has just completed our first 2012 Pro-Am and we are all smiles. This first event was so popular that the demand forced us to add a third ranch and coach and all three ranches were sold out! We want to give a special thanks to ICF board member Larry Wheeler of Houston Camera Exchange and his customers who did so much to make this event the success that it was. Three beautiful ranches, three determined coaches, and 16 eager photographers invested 4 days in the brush behind the lens to produce a series of beautiful images and promote the cause of conservation. The competition was fun and added so much to the event. The scores and highlights are listed on the left for everyone to see and share. The biggest win was for the future of the wildlife and their habitat, our participants made that a reality. We thank you all and look forward to seeing you again at your next ICF Pro-Am.
