FINISHED: Ask Me Anything: Dan Atherton - Escape. Create.
Had the opportunity to watch you race at Winter Park this past year. I don't think I saw anyone else in the entire field take the rock garden at the top of stage 3 with as much grace as you. While the results may have been rough it's clear from your skills on a bike that you already do compete with the big players.

7 Things I Couldn't Live Without
Awesome list, and i approve these items. Even for the local photographer who only does event photography. Not only do they help you with adverse conditions but in my experience they've allowed me to pursue shots that normally would have gone uncaptured because of accessible. Also, After being lucky enough to shoot sections of the EWS in Colorado I've been wondering about the possibilities of spending a year following the EWS to build a more expansive portfolio and break further into the photography business. Logistically how does one do that? Do most photographers work freelance and then sell to buyers, or are they generally operating under a company ie. Pinkbike, SRAM, etc

By "the rest of us" I'm assuming the movie. Not sure how many riders could handle that trail.

Don't forget the dh course on the lower half of deer. That thing makes thieves Forest look easy.

11 Steps to Getting POD
No offense man, but your comments indicate otherwise. Everyone commenting here has tried to politely give feedback and encourage you and your photography, and you have primarily replied with rude and belittling comments that place the blame on others and their decisions. You're the only one here who seems to have hurt feelings, for which I truly am sorry. I actively participate in photo contests year round and i know just how hard it is to have your creative work torn to shreds by someone who prefers a photo of a potted plant. Don't get discouraged though, you're in good company. Leonardo Da'Vinci, arguably the greatest artist ever, was considered a massive failure until his 40s. Instead of blaming his failure on others he just simply kept on drawing. Go back and study the picture you don't understand and maybe you might learn something new. If all you care about is getting POD or proving that your photo is better than someone else's photo, and all you do is repeatedly refer back to that one photo you took, then unfortunately you will probably never produce a POD worthy shoot. And even more sad is that you will miss out on the amazing art that is photography.

11 Steps to Getting POD
I'm not saying it isn't a good photo, but it really didn't jump out as a great photo (even if it was technically difficult). I know it may sound nitpicky, (and it's only one photographer's opinion ), but the thing that bothered me the most was the background composition. Background colors felt flat and the cars and trailers distracted from the rider. That and the horizon line passing right through the rider is a technical no-no.All of these minor elements combined made the shot feel more like a snapshot than a well composed piece, and distracted me from the actual rider. I had to make myself focus on him even though he dominates so much of the frame. Don't give up though. Just keep shooting. When I started shooting photography I was given the advice that no matter how good your first ten thousand fully edited pictures are, you don't really begin to excel as a photographer until after 10,000 shots.
