In 1999, the first truly automated website for providing event photographs for inspection, selection and distribution went online and PhotoCrazy, Inc. quickly revolutionized the Event Photography Industry. Founded by Peter Wolf in Thousand Oaks, CA - PhotoCrazy® grew to be the largest site of its kind, currently providing more than three million photographs available for purchase.
PhotoCrazy® professional photographers attend sporting events and capture exquisite high quality digital photos of athletes in action. Marathons, triathlons, bicycling, running and swim events, and organized children's sports are covered and photos are posted on Photocrazy.com usually within 24 hours after the event.
Participants can find their pictures online by selecting the event, the time the photo was taken or simply entering their name or bib number. Helpful online tools are provided to make the search process easy (see an EXAMPLE here). All ordered photos are processed by highly-skilled graphic artists who color enhance, size, crop for composition, and add requested text. Photos are processed by a KodakGallery® facility using the highest quality Kodak® paper. Photos come in all popular sizes including poster size and an array of photo products are offered from mouse pads, to ceramic cups, t-shirts, key chains and more.
Orders are processed and shipped within days to accommodate our goal of the quickest delivery in the industry. And photos from all events remain on our site indefinitely so that pictures are available for purchase for years to come.
Photocrazy, Inc. was the first of its kind and blazed a path for literally thousands of event photography sites to follow. But we remain unique. The internet services we have developed and provide are proprietary innovations for which we have been awarded patents with a number of associated patents still pending. Companies such as Chappell, Inc. (MarathonFoto), Exclaim, Inc. (DotPhotoPro) and Dahrma, Inc. (FotoJack) are a few of the many companies already licensed from PhotoCrazy®.
PhotoCrazy continues to lead the industry with new innovations such as the fully automated and engineered Remote Camera System (RCS) which has been used exclusively by PhotoCrazy® since 2005 with superior results when compared to manual photography and it is patent pending. The RCS can be replicated without the technical skills of talented photographers.
We have introduced a patent pending method of offering FREE pictures and any visitor to our website can quickly find their event pictures or any they previously viewed or purchased since 1999 with our archival service. We are looking into the future with an entirely new system and approach to event photography unlike any other. Keep your eye on us for the best in quality service and products. We're a company leading all others into the 21st Century.
Finally, here is an overview about our patented technology and continued advances in event photography.
