From more than 100,000 entries, Imaging Resource randomly selected Randy Licht of California to win a brand new Sony RX1 digital, full-frame compact camera valued at US$2,800 -- a prize graciously provided by our trusted affiliate partner and sweepstakes sponsor, Adorama.

Randy is a professional family portrait, wedding and corporate photographer who claims he's worn a camera around his neck since he was 11 years old. As a kid, he never thought he'd be able to turn his love of photography into a full-time career, but he's done exactly that. "After I graduated high school in 1974, I sold shoes at Macy's, and on my days off I always had my camera with me, taking pictures of people and places," Randy said. Eventually, he gave up being a shoe salesman to pursue photography full time and over the past 30 or so years, he's photographed thousands of weddings, family portraits and corporate headshots.

When Randy first read about the Sony RX1, he knew he'd love to have one. "It has everything a pro would like, including a super-sharp Carl Zeiss lens," he said. And, of course, he entered Imaging Resource Sony RX1 Holiday Giveaway for a shot to win. And now that he's nabbed the grand prize, Randy can't wait to try out the camera in his work and see how it stacks up against the Nikon gear he typically uses. Here's a couple of Randy's favorite shots that he shared with us:
