Speed bump…

Hello everyone!

Had a bit of a speed bump hit us starting Sunday.  After enjoying a nice Father’s Day, breakfast with CCLL at their Pancake Breakfast and going to the Stewart School Indian Festival and enjoying a GREAT rib dinner at home…  I started to feel awful… long story short, just got back from the hospital, I’m now appendix free!  Emergency appendectomy Tuesday night, two nights in the hospital due to the severity and the doctor’s concern…

So… I’m on the mend, hoping to be somewhat back to “normal” come tournament time July 7th… more on that soon!

Good Bye Mr. John Wooden, the world’s a better place because of you!

Friday June 4th the world lost one of the greatest men of all time.  If you’ve never read, heard or known anything about Mr. John Wooden I would highly recommend heading to the bookstore or anywhere you can find a book about him or by him… buy it, it’s worth the money.

Having known who Mr. Wooden was for quite sometime already, I was greatly privileged to hear him speak at an IBM Sales Kick Off meeting that I attended during my time at Big Blue… WOW.  That’s all I can say.  He was a tremendous man; inspirational to the very core of his being and he wanted to share that with everyone.  He will be remembered in a great number of hearts and minds.  Thank you Mr. Wooden for the mark you’ve made on the world.

Carson High Varsity Poster

After attending and photographing six games and a lot of Photoshop work… it’s done!  All 17 of the fellas in the top action section and the individual photo from photo day as well with names and numbers.

To the team, thanks fellas for welcoming me into the dugout!  I hope this will be something to help remember and cherish your years playing ball for your school.

Contact me for orders.  We’re doing 16×20 or 24×30 prints.  Remember, 30% of the sale of these posters will go back to the team!!

Baseball and… Snow?

Mother Nature… are you kidding me!

I was supposed to shoot the Carson JV Baseball team and deliver Carson Varsity Posters tonight… but I woke up to 6 inches of SNOW on the ground!!!  Supposed to be 70 degrees by Saturday.  Ahhhhhh, Spring time in Northern Nevada!  Still waiting to hear if the games tonight are cancelled….

High School Baseball Action Shoots…

Yikes!  We just figured out that I’ve got the next three days to get the majority of our High School Baseball shooting completed!  Our schedule and the two high school schedules aren’t friendly with each other so here’s the next three whirlwind days!!

Friday April 2nd Carson High Jr Varsity at Home

Saturday April 3rd Douglas High Varsity and Jr Varsity AWAY at Bishop Manogue (double header, I’ll cover one game of each team)

See you out at the field!

Follow us on Twitter!

Hi All, if you know me, I’m not a huge fan of “social networking” sites… Twitter, Facebook, MySpace…  Well… I’m going to be giving Twitter and Facebook a try this year… more Twitter than anything… so, go to www.twitter.com/instaimage and “follow” us.  During the spring season we’ll be offering “Twitter Only” discounts… so if you’re following us… you’ll know about them and be able to take advantage of them!

How’s that sound?  We’ll see how it goes!

High School Baseball Action!

I LOVE baseball season and it’s finally here!!!

I’m going to get a jump on the action shots for the Carson Baseball team during their game on Friday Morning (March 12th).

I’ll be out at the three Carson v. Douglas games on March 18th (3:45 at Carson) and March 20th (11:00 & 1:30 at Douglas).

I’m working on some very cool collage posters this year for the teams.  I’ll post them here when I get them finished.  They will be for sale and 30% of the proceeds from the sale of these posters will go back to the teams as a donation!!

See you out at the field!
