The first photo I came across turned out pretty well.

All kidding aside. I can't really be mad. We're all trying to have a fun time out there.
One thing that I would like to see changed is how the sales of race photos are managed. For the Monster Dash, prices for a single photo start at $13.95. They're not unique with their prices. A single photo for the Ironman starts at $16.95 Now, I get that these folks are in business to make money, and I would love to buy more race photos. However, prices like this are cost-prohibitive.
Some people are going to buy photos regardless of price. I get that. But with these costs, I won't buy ANY photos. How much money did they make off of me? Hmmm...that would be $0. Now, if they sell photos for $5 each, well, then I'll probably buy 3 or 4. How much money have they made off me now? Up to $20. That's how much.
Now, I don't have a business degree, but I'd like to think that if prices were lowered, the increased business volume would offset the change in their 'profit per photo' numbers. That's all. Rant over.
