There are a number of methods of finding people. Firstly if you know the users username or email address you can use the find methods.

FoundUser user = flickr.PeopleFindByEmail("sam@wackylabs.net");


or

FoundUser user = flickr.PeopleFindByUserName("Sam Judson");


or

FoundUser user = flickr.UrlsLookupUser(new Uri("http://www.flickr.com/photos/samjudson"));


N.B. A quick note about username, which is also know as screen name. My username is Sam Judson, this is not the same as my URL alias which is samjudson. Users can change their username therefore you should never rely on this information to stay the same.

Store their user id once you have retrieved it and use that.
