If there's one word that expresses the heartfelt interaction that takes place on a Mentor Series photo trek, it's 'camaraderie.' That's why so many trekkers have stayed in touch with each other informally- to share memories, excellent adventures, and, above all, images. Now here's an exciting way to reconnect with others who share your passion for great photography and the great outdoors! We've created a vibrant new section of our website called Mentor Series Alumni- to make it easy. You can search for fellow trekkers, see the great they have done and places they've been since their last trek, view images taken on specific treks and talk to other trekkers on our forums. We'll also have prizes for the best pictures on each trek and a best of gallery at the end of the year which will be featured in Popular Photography and Imaging. In addition we've created a lighthearted MySpace-style 'snapshots' section where you can post offbeat images, and amusing stories of your experiences. If this sounds like fun, by all means log on, join in, reconnect, and share.
