    Looking For High Quality Photographs and Videos

    At the request of Executive Director Ted Moyer Annie and I, along with several other members, are working with Creative Producer and Professional Photographer, Paul Phillips. Paul is developing a promotional video for the Great Falls Rally for use by the MOA. His work includes photographing the Olympics, the Isle of Man TT and a wide variety of other sporting events. You can view his work at https://www.competitiveimage.us

    Paul is seeking some input from members to use in the video. Specifically, he needs photographs of people interacting and enjoying themselves at prior rallies, and pictures and videos of riding in Montana. Any input should be high quality. What “high quality” is exactly, I will leave to Paul to sort out, but I suspect that members who take high quality photographs know that they are doing so. I do know that the scores of pictures I have that were taken using an iPhone with a finger partially obscuring the lens are not what is needed.

    If you think you have what Paul needs and are willing to let it be used in the video, then please contact him at paul@competitiveimage.us so you can discuss what you have and how to best get it to him. The time available to produce the video is short, so best case is for Paul to have any input no later than Wednesday, March 24th.

    Those that can please support this. Personally, a big fan of member focused content. Paul is an excellent photographer and a fervent MOA member dedicated to the success of our club.

    Probably not.
    When you send pictures in to be shown in the ON they need to be much higher resolution then what you upload to the forum.
    Most newer cameras and cell phones will have high enough resolution as long as you don't reduce the file size.

    This speculation could be solved by asking Voni.

    Pictures uploaded to the forum are not high resolution.
    If you want to know what's required, ask Ted.
    I was trying to be helpful.

    Perhaps Voni or anyone else interested in providing pictures will contact Mr. Phillips.

    Man! That was a great rally, thanks for the reminder. I see Ryan Fortnine was there. I wish I could have met him.
