Ryan Combs Is Going To Monte Carlo!

Ok...not really....but I knew that would get your attention!

I am very happy to announce that our friends, twin photographers Jason and Justin Senft have won "best of show" in the Fédération Mondiale du Cirque’s 2011 photography contest. Their winning image portraying the “Children and the Circus” contest theme features Ryan, his son, Nico, and Becky the elephant. Their photo was selected by Federation Honorary President H.S.H. Princess Stephanie of Monaco and will be exhibited in January 2012 during the 36th Festival International du Cirque de Monte-Carlo.

Jason and Justin always visit us when the show comes to NJ, NY, or PA and after seeing Ryan’s baby, they dreamed up the concept for their photo and proposed it to Ryan and Armando. After many attempts at capturing the difficult photo, the twins succeeded in snapping the winning image in Plumsteadville, PA.

For all of their hard work, Jason and Justin won hotel accomodations for two nights as well as tickets to two competition shows at the circus festival in Monte-Carlo. Unfortunately, it appears they will have to swim there since airfare is not included in the prize. The twins told me they are offering signed museum quality photographic prints of their winning image with the hopes that sales will fund a trip to the circus festival in Monte-Carlo, Monaco. So if any of our fans or circus collectors would like to help support the twins by purchasing a photograph, Jason and Justin can be reached at:

Jason and Justin, congratulations once again! The official announcement can be found here:
