February Beertographer of the Month - @BeardBeerBard

Congrats to Eric aka @BeardBeerBard on being crowned February Beertographer of the Month! There are now only NINE more slots remaining for the rest of the year! Remember in December we'll have a throwdown with all previous 11 winners from January through November. It's going to be something!

Starting today we've begun accepting entries for our March Beertographer of the Month. This time around, we're going to use a specific hashtag to make things easier: #MarchBOTM. If you'd like to include #beertography and mention @beertography, that's great too, but it must include the #MarchBOTM hashtag to be counted!

So for the rest of February, we salute BeardBeerBard and his excelent beertography skills. See below for a little bio and some of his favorite shots. Be sure to follow him on Twitter and congratulate him on the win!

I grew up in the country about an hour south of Charlotte, NC in a town called Waxhaw. I've lived in a couple of places along the East Coast but ultimately settled back into the place where I grew up in a log house out in the woods. Living out here lends itself to great photo opportunities (except sunsets, you don't see sunsets in the woods). 
 I started taking photography seriously about 10 years ago and started taking pictures of beer for fun back in 2008. I've long been a craft beer fan and being able to combine my love for photography and love for beer seemed like the right thing to do. I have some of my work posted over at www.CastingShadowsPhotgraphy.com.
I often work with my friend Daniel Hartis of CharlotteBeer.com on projects (really just an excuse to drink good beer) such as his book Charlotte Beer: A History of Brewing in the Queen City as well as his latest book Beer Lover's the Carolinas. It was after the first book that I found @beertography and even the new term beertography and really started to follow the community that was fostered by the #beertography hashtag.
Many thanks to John and this community and the entertainment it brings me.

Congrats Eric on the win for February! I love seeing the mini portfolio of the winners. One thing that I also liked about last moth was seeing the final voting poll numbers, I would love it if you would bring that back.

Thanks for the comment Jason. It's a constant tweaking process with this ongoing contest but we'll consider bringing it back for March!
