Four Seasons Five Questions: Denver Photo Contest Edition

The Denver Photo Contest that we are sponsoring has produced some amazing shots by local photographers so far. We wanted to showcase some of the top vote-getters, so we'll be conducting short interviews with them over the next month.

Today, we're happy to introduce you to Ryan Behner, 23. He's a photographer, cycler, music fan and enjoyer of all things mechanical, based in Boulder, Colo. He is @rbehner on Twitter, and his photo contest submission is currently ranked #4 on the site.

1. Tell us about your entry, “Denver Glows.”

I took this photo from a friend's rooftop in the LoDo area after a Rockies game one night. It was tough to resist pulling out my camera and capturing the city lights despite the festivities going on. I think I took about 20 of these, but this one stuck out because of the girl looking onto the city in the lower left corner of the shot. I got lucky - I had no idea she was there until afterwards.

2. What do you like about Denver?

That’s a tough one. I’ve always loved the downtown skyline. Always in awe of the big buildings, the lights, and the hustle of the city. I think it shows here. However, I would have to say my favorite part about Denver is the amazing music scene and the great bands that come through the city. You can almost always find a show in Denver to hang out at and have a good time.

3. What’s the best part about growing up in Colorado?

The best part about growing up in Colorado was all the opportunities to get out and have fun. Obviously there is the mountains with all the trails, camping and skiing that is available. Also, the music scene and of course all the local sports teams. I am going to go out on a limb and say Nuggets take it all this year.

4. Given the nighttime nature of your photo, what’s your favorite place to go after the sun goes down?

My favorite place to head afterwards is anywhere with friends and a laid back atmosphere. Sancho’s holds a couple good memories with the copious amounts of PBR that come flowing out of there. I am also a huge fan of the Blake St Vault. Everyone should drink at least one Denver Donkey (aka moscow mule) in their life.

5. Among our six prizes, which one interests you the most and why?

Denver/Colorado has the best beer than any other city, it would awesome to win the prize to all the local Denver breweries and share some drinks with everyone that has helped and encouraged my photo taking.

Dave Taylor Test Drives Our Microsoft Surface

Tech blogger Dave Taylor dropped by the Four Seasons sales office in Denver to test drive the Microsoft Surface we've installed there.

The Surface is a large, touchscreen table that visitors can use to get more information about the residences, from floor plans to being able to check the views from each unit. It's the first Surface in the real estate industry and was the first to appear in Colorado.

Dave wrote a blog post about the device and how we're using it - you can read about it on Dave's Business Blog at Intuitive.com. There are also some great photos, including one of our very own Kelly Carbajal. Give it a look!

Four Seasons Five Questions

We wanted to use this blog as a chance to introduce you to some of the people who are a part of it, so we will be featuring Four Seasons Five Questions. It only makes sense to start with Dani, our Sales Assistant since she is the first face you see when you come into our office.

1. Where are you from originally and how did you end up in Denver?

I’m lucky enough to be able to say I was born and raised in Colorado. I absolutely love this place.

2. How did you become involved with this project?

Surprisingly enough, I found this incredible gig on craigslist!

3. What is your favorite place in Downtown Denver and why?

This is a tie between American Apparel and The Cruise Room. My weakness by day is a comfortable tee, and by night, a filthy dirty Chopin martini with blue cheese stuffed olives.

4. What is the thing you are most excited about with Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Denver?

I am excited to see my hometown growing up and getting the world’s greatest hotel… right here in Denver!

5. Tell us one thing about you that not many people know.

I took a little time off from school to backpack around Europe, and if I didn’t have a dog and a quite depressing bank account, I would spend the rest of my life as a vagabond, going from place to place, just waiting for my next adventure.
