ULTIPHOTOS AND ULTIMATE ROB ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP
Washington, DC (January 31, 2013) — UltiPhotos, the world’s leading provider of Ultimate tournament photography, announced a strategic partnership today with Ultimate Rob, producers of ultimaterob.com, one of the leading hubs for discussion about Ultimate and disc sports on the Internet.
UltiPhotos provides official tournament photography for local college and club tourneys as well as the largest championships in the United States. UltiPhotos corps of elite photographers covered 50 tournaments in 2012, posting tens of thousands of photos and generating one million page views a month. UltimateRob.com is a premier source for Ultimate-related news, reviews, discussion and information with a large, engaged readership base.
“UltiPhotos is the premier provider of high quality tournament photography, and I couldn’t be more excited to have their photos featured in my articles,” said Rob McLeod, a multiple world record holder in disc sports and the founder of UltimateRob.com. “I feel certain that this partnership will only help improve the user experience at UltimateRob.com and serve to better the depth of engagement and discussion that the site is famous for.” McLeod has more than 10 years of experience organizing and managing coaching clinics for ultimate, and the reach and readership of UltimateRob.com has grown exponentially in the past four years under his direction.
Under the terms of the partnership UltiPhotos will become the primary provider of photography for UltimateRob.com. Additionally, McLeod will become a strategic advisor to UltiPhotos helping with publicity and marketing activities as well as new content for fans of great ultimate photography.
“This is a win-win for us,” said Kevin Leclaire, founder of UltiPhotos. “It will be great to work with Rob, who is one of the most recognizable names in disc sports, not just because of his extraordinary world records, but because he is one of the most well-respected and dedicated producers of content related to the sport of Ultimate. Both sides stand to benefit from this partnership. We will provide compelling Ultimate photos to complement the great articles on UltimateRob.com and Rob will help us build greater exposure for UltiPhotos’ tournament photography services and core products such as prints and ultimate photo playing card decks.”
Leclaire founded UltiPhotos in 2008 to showcase his ultimate photography. In the five years since, it has grown from a one-man operation to a multinational organization, employing a dozen photographers at tournaments around the world and a growing support staff.
”2013 is going to be an exciting year for UltiPhotos”, Leclaire related. “The partnership with Ultimate Rob is going to be the first of many steps we take this year to grow our coverage and capabilities to realize our mission of showcasing the best of the sport with great ultimate photos from all levels of play.
