One of the most important skill as a photographer is being organized and developing a workflow to keep track of your files. When I first started shooting, I was still shooting film and you would have to organize and file your negatives and slides in such a way that you could find them and I still have quite a few binders and hanging folders filled with my negatives and slides from back then. In a lot of ways having physical files to maintain and organize was a lot simpler, it was defiantly harder to accidentally trash your images but was also a lot harder to make copies and also easier to damage your negatives and especially your slides.

Now shooting almost totally digitally (I still occasionally shoot actual film on occasion) one of the biggest keys is keeping track of my digital files, especially now that I have filled up three or four external hard drives that I have put away in storage and though I thought I had moved all my favorite all time images into a “Master” Lightroom catalog, today while going through one of my old hard drives I found these images that I had forgotten about and had not moved them into my “Master” catalog…

It is especially timely considering that these are from the last time Rotorua hosted a major World Cup bike event (the 2009 UCI Trials World Cup) with the recent announcement that Cranworx and the Enduro World Series will be coming to Rotorua next year. So enjoy these images for now from my archives…..
