Texas State Championship - Austin
We recently had the opportunity to shoot at the Texas State Championship in Austin. This was a tremendous event for us in many ways.
With around 500 athletes, Level 6 or higher, our photographers were able to catch the best in every athlete. David Racino decided he wanted to focus on the vault event. Many photographers at gymnastics competition will shy away from shooting this because it is the most challenging. David nailed the shots!
Rusty Ray, another one of our talented photographers concentrated on the P-Bars and High Bar. Like David, he too came up with many great shots of the competing athletes.
We want to thank the great folks of Star Gymnastics of Austin for asking us to shoot this event. We received many complements to our staff of photographers, and also requests to shoot future events, including regionals next year. As of today, we are presently booked for four state, regional and national events for 2011. This success is attributed to the professionalism of our event photographers, Erik Gustafson, David Racino, and Rusty Ray. Of course, we can't forget to include Janice Borgfeld and Eric Aaron. They were busy answering questions from customers at the sales booth, and communicating to our photographers on the floor via our wireless radios.
