Ham of the race

April 08, 2012

As you’re aware, I encourage all the runners, racers, riders, walkers, joggers, hoppers, climbers and crawlers who pass my camera during an event to give me a wave, a thumbs up, a smile even – something to show me you’re enjoying yourself (even if, at that moment in time, you may not really be having a ton of fun!)

Here’s some more inventive … introducing the “Ham of the Race” competition – this rewards the hams – the people who do something really cool for the camera – the people who really stand out. At a race, I may be shooting thousands of photos, and when I’m clicking through them in the days that follow, it’s nice to come across something I didn’t notice, or someone who’s really living it up – so I want to reward those people – long live the ham!

Almost “hammy” enough

What will you get if you’re the ham of the race? Your choice of a full resolution download from the gallery, or credit enough to get you an 8*10 print to hang on your walls – you pick.

Rules – Choice of “ham” is based on how much of a chuckle I get during processing, and is not scientific or open for discussion. Prizes are an 8*10 or a full resolution download with personal use license. Chosen “ham” needs to get in touch with me once their photo has been posted to Facebook, and redeem their prize within 1 month of the race date.
