Dan Milner's 2017 in Pictures - Photo Epic
@ismasan: not many, at least for camera hardware. Mountain biking doesnt have much "reach" in the mainstream camera world, not like fashion, press, football, olympics or war photography. Its seen as too fringe. So the result is as far as I know there are only a very few bike photographers that are sponsored by camera companies. My job is made easier by sponsorship from bike companies - Yeti, Shimano, Mavic, Fox, Crank Brothers, WTB, and I get camera packs from F-stop. Its a nice place to be. Really.

Thanks Doug, yeah a lot goes into the planning and research of these trips and the stories that come from them. But this planning pays off - this year I placed over 350 pages in print mags around the world and 15+ online features from these trips. Original story angles are key of editorial, but they also are more of an incentive for me to go exploring - call it curiosity.

@gunners1: For years I'd have said its all about the lens quality - sharpness especially - but that was when we shot pretty much only for print and on 35mm slide film, and the game has changed a lot now with more stuff shot just for online. Not saying sharpness isn't still a factor, more that its less obvious at online resolutions. So yes, a fairly decent camera body is important - one that lets you take control over every aspect as you learn and push techniques further. But mainly its important to just get out and shoot. Look around at different genres of photography and you'll see for street photographers, capturing the moment is paramount, and technical details like focus and exposure are often less important, while bike photography is a mix of the two, depending on what you're shooting and who for. Only by going out shooting can you really learn and refine techniques and the knowledge that lets you tell a story in the image you shoot. Good luck and go do it!
