Hello everybody! This year in addition to the printed version of the 2012 Oklahoma Cycling Calendar I’ll be putting out monthly “desktop” versions you can download for use on your computers. I took this at the Showdown at Sundown CX races, I hope you enjoy! – Robert
Hey everyone! I’ve spent the past few weeks putting together a new calendar featuring some of the photographs I’ve taken during 2011. I’m currently doing test-prints of it (to make sure it looks good) and should be ready to start shipping these out very soon. If you would like to order one please click-through to this web-page to get some more details and look at a few more preview pictures: http://www.rjbphoto.com/Sports/2012-Oklahoma-Cycling-Calendar/
I know this post is a little late but I just wanted to post an update to say I’ve uploaded the photos from Day 3 of the 2011 Tulsa Tough races. The easiest way to view the photos is to visit this event page that I’ve created, there is a slideshow and links to all of the galleries where I’ve posted photos organized according to the race.
I know I’ve gotten a lot of requests from specific racers and teams looking for photos and I’m getting along in processing those. I’ll keep you updated and should be getting back to you in the next few days. Thanks for the interest! Below are some of my more favorite shots from the races on Riverside Drive.
Here is blog post #2 with some new links for photos I took during day 2 of this year’s Tulsa Tough races. Here are a bunch of links (event page link coming soon):

If you missed my earlier post I’ve also uploaded a bunch of photos from Day 1 at the Blue Dome District races.

I’m not uploading as many photos as I uploaded last year but if you’re looking for any shots in particular please send me a message (I may have something you want). I’m uploading and processing more shots, and soon I’ll create an official event page with a nice slideshow. Until then here are some of my more favorite photos from the first night of racing:
I just finished creating a video featuring some photos I look at last year’s Tulsa Tough races. I wanted to put something together, kind of an advertisement, to let people know that I’ll be at the races this year and taking photos again.
I ended up using Animoto, and it was ridiculously easy. They integrate with Smugmug, so I was able to pull in all my photos already. I just had to choose what to show, arrange things, and write some text. Figuring out what I wanted to say was probably the hardest part. I wanted a kind of flashy theme, and energetic music, and I told it to show the photos quicker than normal to keep it upbeat. Then, I clicked the finish button and they sent everything off to some remote server to render and piece together!
The only other hard part was figuring out where to host the movie file. Animoto has built in hosting, which is nice, but I wanted a link that would play embedded within Facebook, so I uploaded to Youtube instead. They also support uploading back to Smugmug, but I find their player is kind of slow and bulky. Vimeo was another option, but uploading there takes forever and I’m still waiting in a queue for my movie to process.
I’m pretty bad about updating things, this blog included, but I’m finally getting around to updating about the Oklahoma State Criterium from 2 weekends ago. I wanted to write this post before Tulsa Tough started this weekend! Short version: click here to see a slideshow. Click here for a large gallery with all the races. Click “read more” to read the longer version. (more…)
Photos I took today are up at this website. I only managed to get out to the Cat 1 and 2 races though. If anyone wants to order prints use the coupon code “dirt” for a free 5×7 print (or $10 off your order if you want a larger print, coupon code is good for this week).
Just a quick note, since I haven’t had the time to write my full blog post yet, I’ve posted pictures from this weekends race on my website in a couple of different spots. This webpage has a slideshow with some of my favorite shots from both of the races this weekend. There is also a coupon for 10% off prints if you’re into that. I have an event page with a lot more photos posted here. I’m still trying to upload photos to Facebook but I keep getting error messages. I wanted to make them centrally available so everyone could tag themselves, but that doesn’t seem to be working out right now so it’ll have to wait.
Also this weekend I went to the “Six in the sticks” mountain bike race held at Turkey Mountain in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I found out about the event by reading the DoubleShot Coffee racing blog and thought it’d be a good event to try and practice shooting more sports events. I really enjoy shooting cycling events, but I still need more practice.
This weekend I went and shot some photos at the 2009 Tulsa Tough competition. Its a 3-day bike race with lots of different events and all kinds of fun stuff.
