    HHH Photographers

    Anyone (who didn't throw away the information in the registration packet) know what company was out there taking pictures? I'm pretty sure there was a website - and I thought I'd remember it, but after the ride (my first metric), I didn't remember much of anything at all. I thought it was something like Marathon Photographers or something.... Thanks!

    Looks like Marathon Photo is the one you're thinking of. They did the photography for the Houston-Austin MS-150 that I rode earlier this year. Don't forget to look through the full archive of pictures from the event: they try to match pictures to riders via bib number, but there's always a bunch of pictures where they can't quite make it out. When looking through the MS-150 pictures I found two of me that were better than the one they matched to my number.

    Nope - just on the front of my bike. I looked at the stickers, at my helmet and decided the vent holes were more important than the sticker! But, my bike number was pretty visible the whole ride.

    Thanks, Grendel - I thought it was Marathon, just couldn't find it. I tried marathonphoto.com and wound up at marathonguide.com. Didn't try foto....

    I don't think the pictures are up yet, it will probably be a week
    or so till they are posted.
    I kept seeing the same photog throughout my ride, I swear
    he caught me at least 3 times.

    Last year I was proud of my accomplishment. I looked forward to getting my photos. When they finally sent me the proofs, they were of 2 different guys. During the ride, both times I saw the photographers I slowed so I wan't obstructed by someone else and smiled. I had numbers on the front of my bike and my helmet. With that many ridders, they are bound to miss something.

    Oh well I have the memory of it and the pin.

    Scubagirl,

    Did you do the ride this year?

    I know I was seen by the photographer at least 3 times
    last year, and only 1 pic posted, it was ok, nothing special.

    Haven't seen the pictures this year, but I got "shot" at 3 times
    out on the road and then at the finish. If I get any pics worth
    posting I'll put it in the "who are you" thread.

    Toothpick,

    I was referring to the "official" HHH photos by Marathon
    photo. I didn't take any pictures, I was dying like an animal
    (to quote Bobke) and didn't have time, nor strength to
    press the shutter button .

    Oh, c'mon. I know you took my pic. I'm the one with the red jersey. Surely you saw me. Actually, I found my pic and wanted to post it (or at least attempt it) if there's an appropriate thread. Thanks much.
