2013 Photo Contest

Episode #35 of the Nevada Magazine radio show features respective interviews with Neil Lockhart (above left), the grand prize winner of Nevada Magazine's 2013 photo contest, and Kristoffer Pfalmer (above right), grand prize winner of the 2012 photo contest and an Honorable Mention winner in this year's contest. Both are Reno photographers.

In the beginning of the show, Lockhart explains how he captured his winning image "Light Glyphs," which was taken in Lagomarsino Canyon, one of the state’s most intriguing collections of petroglyphs located in the Lousetown area north of Virginia City. He also shares his favorite places in Nevada to photograph.

To start the second segment, fourth-place winner Michael Lindberg — another Reno photographer — calls in to discuss his outstanding image of iconic Sand Mountain. Lindberg is also an avid fisherman who prefers the Nevada side of the Truckee River.

Pfalmer explains how his job with the Nevada Air National Guard allows him to get perspectives on the Silver State that not many get to see. He also shares where he loves to photograph in the state. What started as a casual hobby for Pfalmer has grown into a unique skill. His photography is displayed at Reno business 1864 Tavern. The tavern's co-owner, Kevin Walen, also calls in during the show.

You can read more about 1864 Tavern in this story and in Nevada Magazine's September/October 2013 issue. You can also view the 2013 photo contest winners here or in that same edition.
