Each race is unique and memorable and capturing those moments are made easier by PhotoVendo, the brainchild of Ben M. Chan (photographer on the run). You can’t always bring someone along to take your photos and not everyone has an SLR camera, and it’s definitely difficult to bring a camera along in-race and take photos along the way, but just about every runner wants to have a photo of themselves while running—this is where this service comes in handy.
PhotoVendo has been around several races already and is quickly becoming part of the norm. The previously concluded UP ICTUS Run gave more runners an opportunity to enjoy their services by giving free prints of photos taken on their area. This was my first race photo printed from PhotoVendo and it definitely won’t be the last. I sure would love to order the high-resolution copy of that photo but it wasn’t available on their site (hope they would, our group photo from Unicef Run wasn’t available either). There was this photo from PhotoVendo that I really liked:
This race was a struggle for me as I was running with an injury at the time, and I think you can see that from this photo.
Thank you PhotoVendo for your services, although I’m not paying a customer yet, I’m definitely sold! I just have a few “requests” or “unsolicited suggestions:”
- Be able to order photos from different races. I like it better to order many items at one time since I won’t be using a credit card for my purchases.
- Be able to order our group photos. I tried searching for our group photo last Unicef Run using all the race numbers of everyone in the photo but I didn’t locate it.
- Probably have an account system so we could just log in and not type our delivery address every time we place an order or make alterations to our orders.
Sorry for being a demanding (but non-profitable) client, I’ll be one soon (promise!). I look forward to more great photos from you guys. Keep up the good work!

Are you doing the walkathon? Just kidding 🙂
Hey, we all have our ups and downs in running. What matters is how you get up after falling down. So don’t feel bad, just enjoy your rest… and when you do feel better, get up and run!
