The 2018 AVA Region IX Championships are here!

I will be traveling to Lexington this year to provide extensive event photography coverage of the entire championships weekend. As a past vaulter and horse owner/trainer, I am keenly aware of how important it is to capture these moments forever, and also realize the unique timing, low-light action photography experience, and etiquette aspects required to professionally cover such events.

 

PLEASE NOTE: There will be some changes this year in the sign-up and coverage, as I will be photographing this event solo. While it’s always important that potential clients use available sign-up forms, it will be imperative this year – as I won’t be able to photograph all three arenas (or even non-signup freestyles) and will be photographing as well as processing, organizing, and communicating with everyone simultaneously during the event – ALONE.

This shouldn’t impact any ability to photograph your rounds during the competition – but I will most likely be unable to fulfill photo orders which were not pre-ordered or communicated to me prior to the event.

 

 

 

 

 

 


PLEASE fill out the sign-up form below ASAP so I can schedule your rounds. While unlikely – I may incur scheduling conflicts as sign-ups are received. These will be processed on a strictly first-come first-serve basis.

NOTE: PRE-PAID CLIENTS WILL ALWAYS RECEIVE PRIORITY OVER STANDARD PRE-ORDERS.
Please email me or call/text @ 571-229-0762 to arrange pre-payment and ensure priority.
NOTE: Pre-payment ensures priority if scheduling conflicts occur!
Please type the vaulter number, name, round (including date & time) you would like photographed. If possible, please reference official order of go for round information. EXAMPLE: ML7 Tess McNally 34A COPPER INDIVIDUAL COMPULSORIES - Sat 9:34am NOTE: I will contact all clients about which photo package they prefer, though individual entries and rounds will be assumed to be as such. Pricing information is listed below for reference.

VAULTING SPECIAL – FOR THIS EVENT ONLY

  • Low/web resolution quality included High resolution images WITH NO SOCIAL MEDIA LICENSING LIMITATIONS! Please note – as always, photo credit is greatly appreciated.
  • Print quality, high res, and other rights may be purchased Print-quality processing on select images is included (as well as limited ON-SITE print capabilities) – print fees/materials apply
  • Rapid-processing & fulfillment – on-site processing of Friday & Saturday images may be possible, subject to number of photo orders received – please contact me for more information as entries are received

NOTE on minimum photo numbers per package listed below: These reflect variables in horse rounds (some rounds have all stand/flight moves facing away from photographer position, for example!) and other quality control aspects – while many rounds may have 3-4x the listed number of shots actually taken, this reflects the number of final images of a quality and timing which meet my standards for a final product.

As a vaulter (not just a photographer!) it is generally better to purchase as many rounds as possible – especially if vaulters participate in multiple freestyle rounds. There WILL BE rounds when the vaulters flight moves, jumps, and best static moves are NOT facing me (even if moves are towards judges, light through the arena windows and doors may not permit me from shooting in that direction!)
