Upgraded Office Decor

A great big THANK YOU ! goes out to all the professionals working at Associates In Dentistry in Canton.  We here at the Studio were contacted about assisting in their office decor.  They had some images but were not sure how to present them as decor.  We made a site call to determine where the images would hang, measured the area and went back to the drawing board.  We were able to create a ” virtual “custom double mat for their images and selected the appropriate frame to enhance the art work.  It’s always nice to work with Canton businesses who want to spend locally.  If you are a patient at Associates In Dentistry, make sure you let the nice folks there know their decor choices are great.  If you are a business out there and want to know how Dave Lewis Studio can work with your business, just call 309-647-5770.

    Emotional Game

    Sports games are always much more interesting when the Fans, the Coaches, and the players on the sideline all start cheering and shouting instructions to the players on the court or field.  Points win the game and unfortunately the IMS 8th Grade Lady Giants came up two points short in last night’s IESA Regional game against Dunlap.  To view all the game images be sure to visit www.davelewis.zenfolio.com and enjoy.  Win or lose, the Lady Giants played with class and proved to everyone it was still a great night to be a LITTLE GIANT !

        Interception !

        One of the thrill in photographing High & Middle School Sports is the opportunity to capture ” the right moment ” which takes timing, skill, knowledge of the sport, and quite frankly a bit of luck too.  Great job Lukas Goforth on your interception during the Sophomore game vs Macomb.  To all the FRiday Night Fans – you know that for the price of admission, you can see two games.  The game prior to the Varsity game can be just as exciting.  A tip ‘o the hat goes out to the staff of Spoon River Animal Clinic and their volunteer friends for collecting donation to be sent to the ” furry friends ” affected by the recent Texas hurricane disaster.  Great job folks.  To view all the game images from both the Sophomore and the Varsity football games vs Macomb, be sure to visit www.davelewis.zenfolio.com and enjoy.  We had another great night to be a LITTLE GIANT !

          Stretched Out Grab

            Vintage Harley

            This restored 1946 EL Knucklehead Harley Davidson motorcycle was one of the winning entries held here at the studio during the Canton Cruise In in June.  The winner is receiving his prize image printed on Aluminum ( minus the before image ) .  It took the owner and myself almost three hours on location to photograph this fabulous machine.  Thank goodness the weather was cool and  almost no mosquitos !   For those of you out there with vintage cars, motorcycles, trucks, tractors, or airplanes, then what we do to get this style of image is for you.  Just give us a call at 309.647.5770 and we will be happy to sit down with you to get this process started.  Enjoy.

                Cutie Patooie

                162_RutledgeThis absolutely darling little girl was in the studio recently for her 4 month portrait.  I have three granddaughters already so this little cutie pattoie and I get along just nicely. Her mother and grandmother were constantly remarking ” how well this little one was performing for me.”  Maybe it’s because I have grandchildren or might it be that I am a professional at this with quite a few years of experience ?  Who knows ?  All that’s important is the results.  Sometimes I have to work harder than other times, but that’s what we do here at Dave Lewis Studio.  You are welcome to visit our website at www.davelewisstudio.net and enjoy some of the images we have produced for families and seniors and our terrific commercial clients.

                  In Good Company

                  AX6Y1110The 119th Annual Washington’s Day Banquet held by the Creve Couer Club of Peoria featured Mr. George Will, a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for the Washington Post as the keynote speaker.  Behind the scenes it took myself and two of my colleagues over 10 hours of time ( including travel ) to set up and photograph Mr. Will with the board of directors and with a large number of VIP’s, 59 tables of 8 guests each, all the awards, and a reception for Mr. Will following the banquet.  For me it was an honor to meet Mr. Will and to be asked to return after last year working with Mr. Rudy Guiliani, former mayor of New York City at last year’s banquet.  Thank you Creve Couer Club for having us again.  We are looking forward to next year.
