We have tried different methods and the single photographer model works best for us.
One small *idea*
perhaps if there is only one photographer then perhaps they would have to pick ride or photograph..
It's a shame when they run the same groups as people.. So people in those groups end up having few to no photographs at all.. (obviously I am not naming names.. and I will say the person doing it is pretty awesome at what they do.. but it's just a shame when they are out on the track same time as 1/3 of the riders.. so that 1/3 are underserved)
I understand on the reasoning behind your decision.. and I honestly had no plan on making any real money from it.. Probably less per season than I make per day at the regular job.. Just thought it would be an interesting idea for the riders.. (that way you end up with photos of you on multiple turns)
and a fun thing to do on the weekends..
That said I can totally see how it would/could cause conflicts and confusion.. As to where to go get the photos etc..
I had been planning on asking you the question for a year or two.. Finally just got around to it
Side note.. fixed the spelling on your name in the original post.
Sorry about that.
Best of luck this year.. Hope to see you out there more than on here this year!
