Photo Epic: Feel the Speed With This Week's #PanShotFriday
It's possible. I have master list with about 100 shots saved that I pull from each week, and may have forgotten to delete some that were already used. But worth seeing twice right ?

Glad the original idea panned out... As long as people keep submitting them we will keep posting.

@iainmac-1: no I'm not going to lead in with some line about carsharing etc to appease anyone. I fly 130,000 miles a year, and if I car share it's because it's faster between some rounds or cheaper... The line about PB not flying folks around is because we are freelancers and foot our own bills always. And I feel no need to environmentally justify my career choice and it's inherent impact to make you or anyone else feel better. It is what it is. We all have an impact greater than we should... This is mine and I can chose to offset in other ways with other lifestyle choices... However I feel no need to have to justify one with the other or defend any of it. 7+ months a year I'm home. Literally at home.... But you're certainly not going to find me criticizing folks that commute to work in their cars year round. Because that would be the silly kind of hypocritical argument y'all are pushing here. Cheers... Enjoy the photos, videos, live race coverage, product development, and consumerism that is part and parcel of MTB culture. We could all be a part of something far worse so focus the lifestyle critique elsewhere please.

@iainmac-1: your words " If a user wants to question PB flying a photographer around the world to provide race coverage, then give him a proper answer as to why that is justified, environmentally. Not "we are simply doing our job". Can PB utilise locally-based freelancers for example?" You want an environmental justification for how a group of people make a living? While simultaneously enjoying/consuming the content they create while making that living. *** And in pinkbikes defense they don't fly us around the world. And quite often we can drive from round to round, carpool, etc. An article was put up about the beauty of the planet we live on. Complete with pictures and words about how we can all do our part to reflect on what we have, not take it for granted, and do our own part. Yet some how this has triggered a few of you because in doing so we posted pictures from travels. Are you aware of the saying people in glass houses should not throw stones? Apply that here. Every single person with an iPhone, internet access, a car, a bike, who just generally goes about their day making an honest living has an environmental impact larger than they should... Everyone, every day. So kindly do not try to use other people's livelyhood as a way to call them out while spouting on out all the great things you do for the environment as a way to somehow justify why you are entitled to criticize. You're not. The shoe would easily be in the other foot if your life choices were under review. You do you... But don't judge others here At the end of the day I shoot photos of bikes. Hopefully creating images that promote an active and healthy outdoor lifestyle. Sure it promotes consumerism, but at least it promotes it in the outdoor industry where many of the brands/consumers are environmentally conscious and make some small steps to make their own lives a little less impactful. We are all guilty of the same pleasures and exploits, so please leave your sense of entitlement for judgment at the door.

@iainmac-1: let's locally source the riders for the next wotld cup race too... Then we can all stay home and feel warm and fuzzy about it. You do you... But don't point fingers at other people because you've decided one thing they do has an environment impact. Where do all those veggies you eat get shipped into Scotland from? Are they all farmed responsibly, etc etc You sir are a consumer just like everyone else. And you consume the content on this website daily as well. So coming on a website you enjoy while also trying to make some silly call out about how people who create that content shouldn't be flying around the world blablabla.... The irony and hypocrisy is thick

@iainmac-1: do you walk/bike to work? Or do you drive? Maybe your employer should hire someone closer? Do you ever take a vacation? Do you purchase food that comes from various parts of the world v. What's grown only locally on your community? Do you ever use single use plastics? Do you own a bike and buy the riding gear that is all manufactured in the far east? .... Right... So let's not all stand here and decide world cup photographers, etc flying to races and taking pictures is the problem we need to point out fingers at. Point them at yourself first before taking aim here.

I hope you don't follow WC racing, watch the live feeds, view photo epics, cheer for favorite riders, etc... Because all these far off remote places we so irresponsibly shot are either the photographers own back yards or the scenes that surround the World Cup and EWS venues in which we are working... Working to provide content for people to enjoy here... Not sure how your elitist attitude is really called for here? This certainly isn't the time, place, or context for you to be standing on your soapbox and trying to call people out for simply doing their jobs. Cheers

Yes... Taken from in and around or traveling between the various World Cup and EWS locations over the years. And a few from we each of our own backyards that we call home when not on assignments.

Photo Epic: #PanShotFriday - Our Favourite Crowd-Sourced Blur Love This Week
Because at 1/30th shutter the wheels will be blurry from vibration and hitting bumps, so that's probably what creates the illusion here.
