I wanted to buy some photos of my car from them.  I actually saw what I wanted earlier in the week, but was going to come back later after more photos were taken.  Then my car broke, I packed up, I missed them at their trailer at 4pm  (they were closed up solid), and I was leaving to go home.  I figured I could contact them online and buy that way... Nope.  Apparently they call themselves "event photo" to mean you can only buy photos at the event.  I swapped a few emails with them since Speedweek, with them saying that they could work something out for me, but nothing has materialized.

I guess now with all of the work and running around getting my car ready to race, I need to factor in to my schedule a trip to the photographer on "their" schedule.

I've been to an awful lot of drag races, and never seen a photographer work this way.  Perhaps this is an opportuniy for an enterprising photographer next year?

Would you folks kindly refresh my memory?  Is this "event Photographer" the one that was posting here before the event?  I think that was Kodak team - and I haven't seen any use of Koday, but since it sounds like this one was trying to make a big splash (evven if the results were hardly a ripple) I thought I'd ask.

Yes. The Kodak booth in the vendor area with the little hottie running it. Bought some stuff from them at speedweek. Haven't received anything yet. Called last week, left message, no return call. WTF???

It was the little hottie that I talked to early in the day Wednesday of Speedweek.  She said more photos would be coming later that day, so I didn't buy right then.  When I went back at 4:10 pm, they were locked up.  Haven't been able to get anything done since then.

We used RaytheRat for our 2011 photos...no problem finding Ray. He is either on the salt or on this forum! Oh and the photos were fantastic.

Nothing bothers me more than a vendor that ignores me. I am polite and patient...until you ignore me. That makes me feel I am irrelevant and that is the part that makes me mad. Why ignore someone who is trying hard to buy what you sell. I never understand that.

I have sent Jason two messages for my stuff with no response so far.  I agree there is room for another vendor next year.  No excuse for the slow timing, it is not like he had a lot of BUB, Shoot Out, or World Finals business.

Sorry to hear... but good to know. We should all avoid these folks in the future.

It is hard for a small team to take a lot of pictures and do what needs to be done to race. All I can say is Ray the Rat, excellent shots of our car and the proof files were up by the time I got home. I have not asked Pork Pie but he may be willing to shoot pictures too. Besides, we get great color commentary from Ray. Let's take care of our own.
