I did this with little league baseball last year, i should really mix all my hobbies and do it at cycling events. Would you say there is an interest Pete? One of the reasons little league is successful (and it most certainly is) is because parents obviously want pictures of their kids. But i would imagine adults are less likely to buy prints of themselves.

I bought some from Kevin Dillard when he caught me bridging and riding in a break... Check out their websites. They link to a lot of print services, and as I understand it they get a cut. I don't know if you can make a full time job of it, but it's fun and you could probably make a couple bucks...

There's contact info on both sites too--you could try picking their brains about it.

See the dial in the background? That was hooked up to three sets of rollers. My friend standing next to me in the picture was my spotter so if I "crashed" I wouldn't land on another racer.
