Coming at You

“Coming At You,” by Barrett Hedges, could win on November 4th.

A 24 year-old photographer from East Tennessee is a finalist in a National Geographic photo contest.

Barrett Hedges‘ entry began as one of 14,000.  Over the last few weeks, it’s risen to the top 12 in the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest with National Geographic.  It’s a finalist in the action-energy category, and the winner will be announced in early November.

Today, we’re talking to Hedges about his photo, about how his life could change if he wins, and about his short but successful career as a wilderness photographer.

Listen to an interview with Hedges.
