Bike Photo Day 6: Afton, Minnesota October 15, 2006

I have been nominated to post a riding/racing photo every day for 10 days.

Bike Photo Day 6: Afton, Minnesota October 15, 2006

I choose this picture for today as it represents the first time, as best I can recollect, I was paid to have one of my photos published in a mountain bike magazine.

I sent in a wide variety of images to Dirt Rag magazine on a whim and was pleasantly surprised when they reached out to me to say they wanted to use one my images for the final page of the publication in a section they call Last Chance For Gas.  I still get a kick out of seeing my images in publications and displaying my photos for others is one of my big motivation to take photos.  There are so many times when it would be a lot easier, maybe even more fun, to just leave the camera bag at home and get out and rip the trails but seeing others enjoy and share my photos with their friends makes the pain in my back from the carrying that damn heavy bag a little more tolerable.
