Colorado Photo Company Booth
Tomorrow I will be shooting the St. Patrick’s Day 5K in Highlands Ranch. It is the first event in the Highlands Ranch Race Series and there are 800 runners signed up! I’m looking forward to catching the action and doing my best to deliver some great photos.
I am also trying something a little bit different in terms of the usual race photography approach. I will be setting up a booth at the race expo and displaying/selling my landscape and wildlife prints. This will be an interesting experiment. I realize the odds are not really in my favor. Nobody shows up to run a 5K expecting to buy art to hang on their wall. I do feel like it will be a good exposure opportunity, and hopefully a little bit of traction will come as a result.
Many of my photos have been taken in close proximity to the race, and I have a special series titled “That’s where I live!” with images that were taken within 9 miles of the venue. I think people will be surprised when they see some of those.
It will also be a good learning opportunity for my kids. They are very excited to help out, and I am tremendously grateful for that. I made them special ID badges with our logo to wear on lanyards, so they are legit!
As part of my promo effort, I am giving away this 13×19 framed print of my Roxborough Lightning shot – which was the Grand Prize winner in last year’s calendar contest. The runners just need to stop by the booth to enter. No name, email, phone, or any of that junk – we’ll just write their bib number down and drop it into a hat. I’m pretty excited about doing this, I hope it is well received!
I will also have over 40 other prints for sale. Some are framed, the rest will be in sheet protectors. Click on the image below to be taken to a gallery and see what I’ll be displaying.
Well, time to give this thing a go and see what happens! If you happen to be in the area, stop by Town Center between 8-12 and say hi, we’d love to see you!

Hey Chris Wendy and I are running a 10k in St. George on Saturday. We love that shoot of the lighting, it is one of our favorites.
Hope things go well for you tomorrow.
Thanks, Curtis! Good luck at the 10K. Running in St. George sounds like a great time. See you all in a couple of weeks.
I think that is great. Wish we could be there to help. Sounds like you have some good helpers though. Good on you!
Thanks, Dad. I do have great helpers. We will give it our best shot!
