The very first photo ever posted on Pinkbike.com looks like it was shot on a potato. Which kind of makes sense when you think that the first POD was introduced May 10, 2001. In 2001, digital cameras were the realm of amateurs and hobbyists. Real pros shot on film. Fuji Velvia stock ruled the pages of your favourite magazines and online publications didn't really exist (Youtube wasn't started until 2005 - amazing how quickly times change). When you factor in the difficulty and hassle of scanning film to digital it's no wonder that the first photos on Pinkbike can't compare to what you see today. With photographers like Sterling Lorence, Margus Riga, Colin Meagher, and Fraser Britton gracing our pages now, it's safe to say that digital photography and Pinkbike have matured over the past twelve years. From 1 to 10,000,000, thanks for sharing the ride with all of us. Pinkbike photo #1
