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

    Outfielders are sometimes lonely out there, but when they are needed, they go after that ball !  Nice one-handed catch for an out.  Great game against the Tigers ladies, tough loss.  Look forward to the next game.  To view all the game images from the IMS Lady Giants vs Illini Bluffs, be sure to visit www.davelewis.zenfolio.com and enjoy.  Win or lose, it’s still a great day to be a LITTLE GIANT !

      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.

                  2 Down – 1 To Go

                  img_7446Congratulations to the Ingersoll 8th Grade Lady Giants on their win over East Peoria Central in the second round of the IESA Regional.  Great game ladies, only marred by the one fan ( not from Canton ! ) who was ejected from the game.  The nice part of the Canton fans has been that they are loud, but respectful.  Keep it up fans.  Be sure to visit www.davelewis.zenfolio.com for all the images from both Regional games and enjoy.  Another great night to be a LITTLE GIANT !
