John O. Dixon, Photographer, and owner of “Life to Lens Photography”, was the official photographer for the 50th Wheelmen Meet that was held in West Chester, PA. This is the second time that Mr. Dixon has been chosen to be the official photographer of one of our Annual Meets, and he was chosen because of the excellent job he does in covering our Meets.
The 2017 Meet marked the 50th Anniversary of our organization and it also highlighted the Founder’s Ride on which 8 person’s riding on 1880s high wheel bikes decided the organizational details on which The Wheelmen was based: this ride took place in the area near West Chester The special challenge for Mr. Dixon on this occasion was to capture the essence of the Founder’s Ride in the enthusiasm for old bicycles by today’s Wheelmen who assembled for the 2017 Annual National Wheelmen Meet. Mr. Dixon demonstrated patience and creativity in getting our large crowd arranged for a memorable group photo, and for many pictures of the activities that took place at this meet.
I can recommend Mr. Dixon for photographing large complex events without reservation.
