Unsung Heroes: Derby Photographers
A successful league takes hard work both on and off the track. Many people donate their time and talents to make SVRG a success. Let’s give a shout out to all the camera-happy fans who make us look fabulous! Ever try to take a picture of skaters in action and end up with nothing but a blurry shot? It’s not easy to capture the moment in sharp focus when a blocker flies through the air. These are the people who make it happen.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but our league photographers are priceless! Take Adrian Valenzuela, for example. His photo of SVRG won Derbylife.com’s 2011 Photo of the Year contest for the best color category!
This photo is now a final contender for the 2011 Photo of the Year. Go to Derbylife.com and vote for #3 by Adrian Valenzuela by January 25th.
Derbylife.com has also featured league photographer Donalee Eiri’s fantastic Derbyverse gallery. Imagine a world where roller derby athletes peer down at you from billboards and grace the walls of art galleries...that’s Derbyverse!
Go gaga over Donalee’s derby gallery, arrange a shoot, or purchase a photo over at Photography by D.E.sign’s website. Be sure to show Donalee some derby love at our next bout!
