Squiggy Pictures
« on: March 16, 2009, 09:34:03 AM »
We had a profession photographer out on the course. You may have seen him as you zoomed by him.

He took 1800 pictures and is currently sorting through them. As soon as they are ready I will post their link on the E-group and the Swamp Forum.

I have seen a few of the pictures and they are very good. Bare with us we will have them up soon.

If you choose to purchase any pictures from them,  a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Friends of the County Parks, and the Wilderness Trails association .

512 pictures, and none of me or anyone on my team  :-\ figures.....

I even posed when the photog sitting at the end of heartbreak ridge, started snapping as I came through...lol so much for trying to entertain myself.

oh and $50 a download is stupid....especially when 80% of the pics he had uploaded had the heads cut off.. :P

Where'd you get $50 ?? They are only $10 for 4MB downloads and $20 for the original super hi-res - That's very reasonable. He got some great shots

You must've only looked as of mid morning.  Prior to that he did have them at the high price.  He adjusted it after I started asking him for a discount.
 
That is when I found out the "official" photographer was no him and that if I buy pics from this other guy, that part of my money will go to Friends of WTA.  So I am waiting patiently for this other guy.  So hurry up Greg.    Brad took some nice shots of me so I might buy his as well.  Let us know soon.  Greg also took over 1000 pics and already posted allt he good ones :-)  No pressure though... lol

I spoke with him late this afternoon, he thought that he would have them ready by tonight.
The reason it is taking so long is that he is sorting them by number plate, in an effort to help you find your picture(s). He is confident that he got pictures of everyone.

The actual number of pictures taken from the THREE DAY event is over 7000. With 1800 taken from the off road challenge.
 
Please be patient. Brad, I am sure meant no harm, but this event is intended to have all if any profits donated to the parks and WTA. As an official sponsor Matt and Dawn Lovo will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the park. These funds help maintain the park and help us put on the event.
 
I am not telling you not to buy from Brad, but please give the sponsor first crack. I have seen the pictures of my team, and they are good pictures. Brad simply showed up and took pictures and put them up for sale. The prices will be reasonable.

http://lovopixs.com/gallery/7622048_G2sTT#492910448_HYbdP  Side views not sorted by rider number

http://lovopixs.com/gallery/7630072_Up784#493247013_Bhg6Y    Unknown rider number - bib flipped up, folded back etc

http://lovopixs.com/2009%20Squiggy%20Classic/737643    Root Directory scroll down until you see your number.

These will be linked in the swamp site, and there are still about 600 to go.

There is one like that of me at the start.  I was actually telling some 'dawdlers' 4 abreast in front of me to 'make a hole', so my mouth was open.  LOL

Hey swampers, I want to let everyone know that I had no idea that Matt Lovo has sponsored the event and they are donating $$ to the club/trails. My photos are no longer available for purchase.

I was around the event all day and no one informed me about Matt shooting the event.

I would be happy to help out by donating decals, banners, photos...etc.
