Photo Epic presented by ODI


Naming: [Category]: [Description] - [Event/Date]
Practice Photo Epic: A Day Of Suffering - EWS France 2018
Finals Photo Epic: Joyride - Crankworx Whistler 2018
Photo Report: Disaster Strikes - Superenduro Pietra Ligure 2019

Kinds of report:
• Course Preview (international events only)
• Practice Photo Report (international events only)
• Qualifying Photo Report (international events only)
• Finals Photo Epic (in-house regional, national, and international event coverage only)
• Photo Report (organizer-submitted regional and national events only)


Other notes:
• The report name (eg. "THE BATTLE" or "DUST TO DUST" etc.) should be narrative and goes in the title overlay and can go in the front-page description
• Photo limit is ~40 to keep load-times down, so choose your best images.
• Running photos in columns can look great, and slightly improves load-times
• Only "Finals" should be labeled a "Photo Epic"
• Use the full official name (eg. "Canadian Open Enduro Presented by Specialized" in the Overlay title, but only the short title ("EWS Whistler") in the front page headline
• Use "window" width for all in-house Pinkbike photo reports, otherwise use "media" width

Photos:
• Remember to cover any notable riders that had crashes or mechanicals while on pace to be in the top running.
• Emotions at the finish line/portraits/etc.
• Lifestyle in the lead up to event (if possible, make the style distinct from action shots; black & white for example)
• Some crowd shots or scenics to give the event context
• Try to keep with some chronological order, but make sure your title image is a banger

Tagging & info: All images need to have locations, riders, and descriptions filled in. This helps with SEO and general organization. The best workflow is to upload your photos, set and clone the location data, and then fill out the rider and description for each image—using the description to give each image a caption. Then when you drop the images into your story you have the caption you've already written under the image preview.

Story:
• Write ~300 words to describe what happened at the event. Include the pro men, pro women, and junior field when applicable.
• Use captions to detail the finer points of the event.

Results: International events (Crankworx, World Cups, etc.) get their own Results posts on the homepage. For events that are not large enough to have a separate story for their results, please include results for the top 5 elite men and women at the bottom of the story, and link out to the full results on an external page.

A little American flair in the Santa Cruz pits in Tennessee.
Some behind the scenes is good.
Engineers from Saracen were on site to help Danny Hart and the team get their bikes prepped for the World Cup season.
Use columns for some photos.

Henry Fitzgerald squashes the final drop into the finish line aboard his Norco 29 er.
Tell the story through captions (eg. "Luca Shaw brought all the style this weekend and finished 3rd"). Use only your best images.

Remember to include a variety of angles and focal distances.

Whenever the rain let up the mud turned to paste almost instantly.
Get details to highlight the conditions.

The atmosphere around the race is important too.

Aim for 20-25 action shots, ~5 details shots, ~5 scenic/atmosphere shots, and podium/winner shots.

First race and first win for Danny Hart and Madison Saracen.
Focus on the winner at the end of the epic.

The top five men at Windrock.
Make sure to get podium shots.
