Three possibilities for you to consider:

1. Mark up the author of the text using hAtom and the pictures using  
figure <http://microformats.org/wiki/figure>. You should beware that  
figure is still a draft and might change in the future.

2. Use the hCard "role" property to indicate which person did which.

3. Consider RDFa - in RDFa when you say that someone is an author of  
something, you also say what they authored. A basic example would be  
something like this:

   <div id="an-article" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/terms/">
     <p>Blah, blah, blah.</p>
     <img src="a-picture.jpeg" alt="...">
     <p>Blah, blah, blah.</p>
     <span about="#an-article" property="dc:creator">Alice</span>
     <span about="a-picture.jpeg" property="dc:creator">Bob</span>
