Hey guys! Help with new poll (Read 272 times)

     

    I have paid way too much money in the past to see how bad I look. Not sure what I was thinking -- I've stopped paying money for photos, but I sometimes still look at the free ones. (I posted a free pic I found of myself in the "finish face" thread -- in it, I look like I felt.)

     

    Some of those "finish face" photos are worth $10, IMO. Smile

    Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

        I'll buy them - cost allowing - if there's something "special" about them.  Special reasons include, but are not limited to: first marathon, actually looking decent in the photo, something significant about the content.

         

        When I paced my wife for her first half, I wound up at the back of the pack of the full marathoners (I had signed up for the full), which meant for a bit, I was the guy being followed by the police car (I made up ground pretty quickly).  As it happened, I went past the photographer like this, so I hammed it up and made like I was being chased by the fuzz.

         

        Didn't turn out as hilarious as it was in my head, but I still bought that pack of photos, because hopefully, that's the last time I'll be bringing up the rear and have a police cruiser in the shot.

              A long time ago I decided I had seen enough photos of me running (22 pics--enough)

              I switched to photos of me getting my armpits shaved by people

              dressed in white jumpsuits. They kind of look like my running photos,

              with the raised arms, but there's more of an artistic statement.

                Cost is the simple answer.

                Average 10 races a year x 26 years = Too many pictures.

                Ran Boston in 2012 did not buy the picture.

                    I don't have any family taking photos of me during a race, my races are run along pathways here in Canada and Marathonfoto is non-existent here. So do I love to purchase photos when I get them? Definitely, as I can go 5-6 races without ever getting a racing picture. When I purchased my Boston ones through Marathonfoto, I did note the price to be a little excessive, but for the experience I bought. Would I pay $75 USD if I got pictures each and every race? Probably not...

                      crossing the finish line with my daughters

                      But, I'm probably going to buy this photo of my daughters crossing the finish line with me at my second-ever marathon. Pretty special moment. They jumped onto the course and ran the last hundred yards with me.

                       

                      Otherwise, I don't really buy race photos because I'm pretty sure I don't need a race photo. Unless the photo is unbelievably awesome. Which this photo, above, clearly is.
