11 Steps to Getting POD
As much as it would be kind amusing to do that - I try to never publicly pass comment on peoples work as I think it's bad manners and I don't want to detract from the enjoyment in taking photos, which is what something like that would do.

11 Steps to Getting POD
Actually, getting your peers to favourite your work is the best way to bring your work to my attention. I check what photos are popular on the site at least once every week and it's how I discovered a lot of the less well known photogs who we have featured for POD

11 Steps to Getting POD
@ustemuf, if you would like some feedback on your shot, please DM me. As for the High Roller POD? That was chosen by Colin Meagher, and while I personally prefer some of Garrets other work more, I get where he's coming from. Simple fact is that the photo did the most important thing a photo can do - it stirred emotion in him. And Colin has been shooting since you were an itch in your father's crotch, so he's earned the right to choose whatever turns him on.

Jamaica? No, she came of her own accord...

Video: How to Get a Roost Shot
While I don't want to sound like the IMBA fun police, encouraging people to go and chainsaw the top off berms in the name of photos is not good. I'm sure you guys did this on a trail you had permission to do this on and repaired all the damage afterwards, but there are a lot of people in this world who aren't that considerate.

You're supposed to go round corners, not into them. I can't speak for the rest of the world, but I'd never knowingly run a shot like this for POD.

Yes, I have seen work from the pair of them. I'm sure it will help motivate them to get out and shoot knowing how much their works excites you.

The reason you see certain photographers getting mulitple PODs is because they are regularly uploading great photos. Simple. My brief for PODs is that they should be the best photos in mountain biking. Unsurprisingly, the people who reach that standard most often are people who do this for a living. And I will repeat myself as you seem to have missed what I said: I spend a lot of time looking through photos on Pinkbike to try and find new photographers to be featured as PODs. Incidentally - looking through the photos you have favourited, the names seem quite familiar. If you're liking the work of those photographers, why shouldn't they be getting PODs? What is an 'Instagram Banger'? I have literally no idea what you're talking about. Aside from the fact that I didn't select that Christoph Laue shot as POD (Scott Secco did), if you look over the PODs in the 12 months since I've been the main selector for PODs you will see that on the whole the shots I choose are not heavily processed. There are, of course, some exceptions, because sometimes heavy processing can look great, and sometimes the rest of a shot can be so compelling that you have to put your usual preferences aside. To me, it sounds a lot like you're looking for an excuse to have a bit of a pop, and that's fine. I'm going to turn the computer off now and go riding.

I spend a lot of time looking through photos on Pinkbike to try and find new photographers to be featured as PODs, so no you don't have to be a well-established professional to get a POD. You do, however, have to get your shots in focus.
