Instagram Contest: We Have A Winner!

LOOK3 has a way of connecting with the crowd.

When Laura-Chase McGehee realized that the winning photograph from the Corbis-sponsored Instagram contest was the one that she had taken, she screamed from the balcony of the Paramount Theater.

“THAT’S ME!! I TOOK THAT PICTURE!”

McGehee, an UNC-Chapel Hill alumnus, had just recently left her job as a staff photographer for the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, MD. “After leaving my job to go freelance, a friend told me that I really should get an iPad to showcase my work,” said Laura-Chase. “This just blew my mind.”
