Water in Wisconsin Photo Contest

It turns out that our last blog post showcasing the winter photography of Joseph Leute was pretty timely. We received word that H.H. Bennett Studio in Wisconsin Dells has just launched the Water in Wisconsin Photo Contest! (One side note, the Water in Wisconsin Photo Contest is open to Wisconsin residents only.)

H.H. Bennett Studio is a Wisconsin Historic Site that celebrates the studio of Henry Hamilton Bennett. Bennett was considered one of the premier landscape photographers of the 19th century. His hauntingly beautiful photographs of the Wisconsin Dells landscapes and waterscapes were strategically placed in train stations between the Dells and Chicago. After word of the scenery spread, visitors arrived in droves for tours of the Wisconsin River and a glimpse of the Cambrian-era sandstone bluffs.

The studio is also the oldest continuously operating photography studio in the country. New for 2016, they are offering FREE admission due to several donations and grants from the community, so be sure to swing by this beautiful downtown spot. You will see displays of several of Bennett’s original photographs, inventions, cameras and equipment. There is also a retail section where you can purchase Bennett prints and other souvenirs.

So, you can see, it’s pretty fitting that the H.H. Bennett Studio turns to water as the theme of the contest. As noted on the official website: photo entries should feature cultural, artistic, environmental, geologic or the historic aspect of water in Wisconsin. This can include natural landscapes, action shots or portraits. Check out the contest rules and information through the link below.
