Mike Copeman Photography

New this year for Showdown 2017 Copeman Photography will be posting all the LRA finals photos on the web site  www.mikecopeman.com.  in full resolution protected with a password. A password will be available after Tuesday September 5th. Finalists can contact the LRA office at 780-872-3196 or email [email protected] to receive a password to access the website and download the photos of themselves in each performance. The photos in each performance will follow chronological order exactly as the performance so each contestant will have to go through each performance folder until they find their photos.

Each contestant will have to go to the web site www.mikecopeman.com  click on rodeo and then scroll to the LRA 2017 finals performances. You will have to use the password to get into each folder and then use the password to down load the photos that they want to their computers, tablets and smart phones. There is no limit to how many devices you can download too.

Keep in mind these are large files so be prepared, they will take up a fair bit of space on their devices. All photos are full resolution and can be used to make as many prints at what ever size you would like; as well finalists can use them on Facebook, Twitter or any social media they would like.
