photographer on North Creek
« on: February 12, 2008, 08:10:36 PM »
the past 2 Sundays there has been someone taking pictures on North Creek at the bottom of the first hill. Does anyone know who this might be? I'm just wondering if there is a way to get some prints or something done up.

I know, my large jelly rolls must look pretty good bouncing down the hill.

Seriously though, both times I was with a group of 4 and then 6 riders, all of us run pretty tight together and I think it would make a pretty cool pic to hang in the garage or something.

I can bring some photography gear with me for this Sunday's club ride. Just let me know what sort of pictures you want taken.

I don't usually do the club rides as I have a good "crew" that I ride with every weekend. It's not a big deal, just thought someone might know who was out there is all. Thanks for the offer though. :)

I see you every time I go to Alafia. There is always the same 5 or 6 people with you. You are always upfront!

yeah, everyone likes my pace. Nice easy warm up, know when to hammer hard and when to back off and give everyone a breather. It's a good group of pretty good riders and friends, pretty much the same group for over 2 years now.

I stopped and briefly spoke with the photographer last week.  His images are available on eyefetch.com...search for vandit: http://www.eyefetch.com/profile-images.aspx?user=vandit&view=popular

Don't get too excited, so far he only has 2 biking pics up.  Next time I see him I'll try to catch some more air and see if I show up in his portfolio  ;D
I've tasted death, it could use some hot sauce.

FWIW, I am volunteering to photograph the Squiggy race next month.  I will hopefully scout the course beforehand to find some good (and more importantly safe) locations for me to get some good actions shots of all you racers.  I will let you all know where I might be incase you want to show off for the camera with a sweeet jump or something.  I will post the images somewhere (probably on my Flickr site) and if anyone is interested in prints I will provide them for a very reasonable price (price still TBD).

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, but I just got back from hiding behind that tree in your backyard....It would be impolite for me to say what you were doing. ;D ;) ;D

Thanks for the link to the pictures. One of them is of my skinny birdlegs.

Hey slowfatguy, maybe we can get the guy taking the pictures to bring a wide lens next time so he can take your picture. HAHA
