A&P Lolz, TYR did end up using that picture of that guy that everybody hated.

    You know the front focused super noisy one? Of course it's just a small thumbnail sized image... they probably won't use it in a print ad or anything, but still... it's pretty funny.

    NOTE: this is not an "OMG in ur face" thread.

    Last year I was shooting the meet for some other guy (old friend of mine... his business model was the "selling prints to parents" model) because he needed a 2nd shooter. A rep from TYR approached us and said they needed a photographer to photograph their athletes. My friend was busier than I was so he deferred to me and I ended up shooting for them.

    I was surprised to get a phone call from them this year (2 days before the event... I didn't bother calling them because I thought I would be out of town up until about 3 days before the event), not because they didn't like my photos, but rather because last year I "charged as much as I felt I could get away with" for different photo liscences etc. I guess they didn't mind though because I'm being paid about the same I was last year. I'm actually 2 minutes from finishing the burning of the last DVD for them and I'm rushing out the door to get these mailed off and out of ATL before traffic gets bad.
