I present results from a deep near-infrared survey of gas-rich galaxies behind the plane of our Galaxy. Accurate surface photometry, with careful attention to star-subtraction, has been performed and total magnitudes have been determined for the sample. This data, combined with existing 21-cm spectra, is used to calculate Tully-Fisher distances.
