Welcome to my website, started on 9/28/05.
2013 Fort Custer Stampede: I did this race this year on my fatbike, in the fatbike class, first time ever I've taken a 1st place. All pics off the back of my bike from my Go Pro Black are posted.
For cycling I have galleries posted going back to 2000.
If anyone has needs or special requests for my photos outside of what Smugmug is set up for, please contact me. I can also print photos up to 13"x19" from my Canon Pro-100 printer, e-mail me if interested, as I know that not everyone likes doing internet purchases.
Purchases via Smugmug do not grant the buyer rights to re-sell copies. Please read the idemnity clause below. Please e-mail me for commercial requests and lower res copies. I do not use the low res function from Smugmug. I only sell the original size JPEG's, usually converted from Canon RAW format.
Regarding cycling, I'm a Benefactor member of the Michigan Mountain Biking Association (MMBA). I race Sport men in the over 40 categories,
Regarding music, I play bass, electric&acoustic guitar, and two Chapman Sticks:the 8-string "NS" version, and 12-String Grand Stick. See http://www.Stick.com
, and you will find everything you would want to know about that instrument. Some of my photos & videos of several pro-Stickists have been used in publications in the US, Australia, & Europe. Lately I've been doing my own music for my own cycling videos.
PLEASE NOTE: The subjects of the photos have not given usage releases (unless specifically stated) and anyone that uses the photos agrees to "indemnify me" (holds myself, Steve Balogh harmless) against any claims made by a photo subject. Use any photo here for a public use of your own, you assume FULL liability for your actions.
