2023 Superior Trail Race2023 Superior Trail Race A Little Note from Scott

  • Year 3! 2021 was my first year visiting the North Shore and this event. Not long after, I moved full time to Minneapolis and now officially have made Minnesota my home. :)  I'm very excited for the years to come and I was very excited to be back behind the camera for this year's race. Year 3 brought a nearly perfect weather window, save for the late afternoon/evening hours of Saturday. I did my best to cover the entire field of all three races this year. I saw the majority of the 100s three times, 50s twice and marathoners once. I know I still missed a few, I'm sorry! Hopefully one of the other wonderful photographers out there captured you. 

  • Lastly, as I'm new to many of you, I'll just say that I completely changed my world six years ago to pursue a life telling these stories. I left the spreadsheets, sold the house and lived in a Sprintervan for six years. Covering these events is a pursuit of passion and I'm incredibly lucky to have your support and friendship. Nearly all of my work comes from friends and the people I meet as I travel. Please keep that in mind as you look for photographers/videographers/producers in your work, personal lives or future events. More of my work can be found here: www.scottrokis.com

  • By the numbers ... (roughly). 14,513 Images captured. 1,945 Selected, edited and ready for your viewing enjoyment. 12 miles hiked, 4 hours slept and a thousands kudos given!

Purchasing Options

  • Why Should I Purchase? 

    • It's up to you really. I tend to think of the longterm value of an image. What might not hold a lot of memory value now, will be a great memory to look back on in 10, 20, 30 years for you, your friends and your family. If you do decide to purchase, please remember to credit your photographer @scottrokisphoto. Thank you!

    • If you are facing financial difficulties in life, please reach out directly and we'll find a solution. 

  • Digital Single Images: 

    • Per the instructions below, scroll through the gallery and find the image(s) of you. There will be single image digital download option
    • High Res ($18): >3mb file. Print size 16x24" and larger (I can provide large file too if needed)
    • Medium Res ($15): 3mb file. Print size 10x15" and great for web use
    • Web Res ($12): 1mb file. Print Size 8x12" and great for web use
  • Digital Packages:

    • All of your bib images ($45): If there are multiple images of you, you may use this option to purchase them all. All images high resolution. This option really only makes sense if there are more than 2 images of you. Otherwise, I would suggest two of the singles option.

Please don't steal these photos

  • Every year, every race, I find these photos appearing as people's profile photo on various social media platforms.  Often these photos are at lower, degraded screen capture resolution.  I work very hard to provide professional quality photos.  The equipment is expensive and the skills required take time to develop (not only photography...but the ability to get into position with the gear to capture these shots).  Please help support a local business. Thank you!
