Peter was in The Pit for the first Bench Minor and some of his photos are in the new COG. Lots of NYC in this issue. I noticed Peter had a new Canon Mark IV and I was very envious but not sure if more so that he had it on a Canon pro guy loaner program, or that he just had one in his hands (even if for just a couple weeks). Anyway, all theses photos are from a camera body I wish I had an extra 5 G’s laying around for. And some of the shots may be for one of my lenses I loaned him for the afternoon. As always Peter did a top notch job documenting a polo event, I only wish it was more than three pages. Zach Blackburn, my longtime teammate but for this showdown an opponent, wrote the words that break down the format, the draft and the organization of this ground breaking bike polo event. I’ve heard Chicago is next in line to hold the 2011 Bench Minor. I cant wait.

Ed Glazar’s Promo Card

Ed has been shooting bike related events in NYC for years. Here is his new promo card, it’s got a shot of me playing bike polo in The Pit, kind of like that. And that reminds me, photos are worth money. If a mag or paper asks you for a picture they want to print, and they sell ad space, ask about the rates. Meaning the pay rate to publish your work. Because when you give away your photos, people like Ed have a hard time making a living at being a photographer. And you miss out on your payday.

Gus, ZACH, and

So Gus was in New York this week playing some polo in The Pit. He was telling me about how he’s in school for photography and posting some of his favorite shots on his website Later I looked up his site and browsed the photos and descriptions he has posted. Some of them I thought are really good and interesting. Like this one of ZACH that I had to send the link to the man himself. ZACH emailed me back happy that his comment need not be approved and asked me to post it here. It’s at least worth a look.
