Centerline Events at HITS Saugerties program cover 2013 – Yes, that’s a “Loose Horses” design! Painted Light: In The Warm Up
I think that every year goes a little bit faster. Or perhaps I’m just cramming a whole lot more into each one. Either way, it’s hard to believe that we’re approaching the end of the summer, and that it’s already time for the Centerline Events at HITS Saugerties CDI.
This is always one of my favorite shows of the year. Run by Debra and Steve Reinhardt and their amazing crew, this time around they’ve got nearly 400 entries, which means there will be six arenas going flat out for three days.
I get to see some of my old New York friends at this show, and I get to work with Susan Stickle and Jonna Koellhoffer, who complete the Terri Miller Photo Team this week. But most of all, I get to enjoy photographing a whole lot of cool dressage at the terrific HITS Saugerties facility!
The Centerline Events HITS CDI in Saugerties, NY will be huge, with a record number of entries in 7 rings. I’ll be there as Official Photographer this weekend — be sure you get to my booth to sign up early, because with this many riders, I can only guarantee that I’ll get to you if you’re on my schedule!
When you sign up for photography, you can also pre-order a Printed Proof Book. These 4″x 6″ spiral bound “flip books” are the perfect size for tucking into your purse, so you can carry around your proofs to show your friends — just like the old days! Each proof is lightly watermarked, similar to the photo above. Your pre-ordered Printed Proof Book price of $95.00 includes web-posting of proofs as well — a $35.00 savings over ordering the Proof Book later!
If you signed up for photography at the Saugerties CDI, your photo galleries are up and you should have received an email from me containing your personal access code.
If you didn’t sign up for photos, but you were in an award ceremony, please look in the HITS Highlights and Awards gallery — photos of you may be in there.
If you didn’t sign up for photos, and you’re looking for competition photos, you might be lucky, I might have photographed you anyway. Contact me to find out. A sign up fee will apply for editing, prepping and posting your photos.
Thanks to the Centerline Events team for another great show!
Schooling At Sunrise
This week I’m on my way to the Centerline Events Dressage show at the HITS showgrounds in Saugerties, NY, where I am the show photographer. Debra and Steve Reinhardt and their top-notch crew always run a fabulous show, and I look forward to this one each year.
The cover of the Centerline Events show program features my artwork, and this year the image is called Schooling At Sunrise. It’s an oil painting, 24″x30″, and it is this week’s Painting Of The Week. It shows one of my favorite moments, early in the morning, when the show ground is already a beehive of activity, just before the competition begins for the day. This striking image would be a great addition to your collection of dressage art. Remember, the Painting Of The Week includes free shipping within the US!
This year I’ll be joined at HITS by my old friend Susan Sexton. Susan is living in the “Santa Fe of Mexico”, San Miguel de Allende, which has been described as “one of the hippest, busiest, most charming towns in Mexico.” She hasn’t been photographing any shows in the States lately – I’m looking forward to seeing her as much as you all are!
Stop by my stand to sign up for photos, or just to say hello! You can download your sign up sheet here, but please remember to fill it out and bring it with you to the show so I can put you on my photo schedule!
