West Elk Bicycle Classic
This is a photo from last year at this event. I've been their photographer for the past few years and it's coming up again next month. I'm looking forward to it and hoping for some clouds like this again.
I'm doing big scenic shots like this but also individual rider photos that we will give away free as small images with the race logo watermark and riders can also order larger sizes and prints without the watermark. This giving away part is new this year but seems to be a trend in cycling events.
Any other cycling event photographers here? Just curious if you are seeing much of the trend toward free small photos for social media.
