A couple of great games were on tap as some of Idaho’s best basketball teams faced off last Friday night. The Post Falls Trojans traveled to Coeur d’Alene High school to take on the Vikings. The games did not disappoint, especially the boys game that ended up in overtime with the game winning shot coming at the buzzer. Here are a few shots from the night as well as links to the galleries to see all the photos.
Due to a few different circumstances I did not get all the shots that I would have liked to at these two basketball games. I had an appointment that kept me from the first half of the JV game and then due to a medical condition by one of the folks from St. Maries I was not able to use my flashes for the Varsity game. The quality is so much better when I can use my two Paul C. Buff Einstein lights, but every so often I have to return to bumping up the ISO to 6400 and grabbing some shots with the little bit of light that the school gym offers. Here are a couple shots from each game as well as links to the entire gallery of photos.

My sports coverage was a little lighter this week due to some portrait work and a wedding in Sacramento. I love shooting sports but I also have to pay my bills so portrait and wedding work always takes priority! I did make sure to schedule my flights for the wedding so that I would only miss a Saturday’s worth of games though. Here is this weeks recap of my sports and sports related work this last week.

This week the Fall High School sports season officially began. On the schedule this last week were two varsity soccer games and a football jamboree.

I know it feels like summer has barely started, but July is almost over and August is right around the corner. That means that the fall high school sports season is not far away! I recently downloaded fall season calendars for a number of the North Idaho teams and am beginning to formulate my plans for what games and teams I am going to be shooting this season. I shoot freelance for a number of Northern Idaho papers as well as for idahosports.com, but as a freelancer I usually get to decide what games I am going to be covering.
Over the last year I have received quite a few requests from parents and athletes to come and photograph different games and teams and have tried to accommodate those requests as much as possible. With many athletes and teams requesting photography I thought that I might publish a few tips. So, how do you increase the odds of having Jason Duchow Photography show up to photograph your games? I have two easy to remember tips.
1. Bribe me! Yes, I can be bought! Food is often tempting, but for those of you that recognize me you know I don’t need any more goodies! Feel free, however, to offer me large sums of money!
2. Buy prints or downloads! This works kind of like the bribe, except it requires only small sums of money and you get high quality prints and high resolution digital files to keep forever!
One more bonus tip. Grab last year’s prints before the new school year starts. Last year’s sports seasons will soon be completely lost in the dust of the new school year, cruise on over and get your prints from the 2010-2011 seasons before that happens! Here is a link!
Here is to a great 2011-2012 sports season, I am looking forward to seeing some great action this year through one eye pressed hard against my viewfinder!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 703 Liker Giveaway, the response was truly amazing! Thank you to all of the new Facebook Likers, please feel free to help spread the word about Jason Duchow Photography so we can reach another “interesting number” and have another fun contest. If you missed the post on facebook then you might not know how the final results panned out. In Sandpoint the winner was Natasha Roop, Priest River saw Tyler Douglas run away with a poster, Newport’s Sarah Morse is celebrating in victory and the winning voter was Morgan Bach. Tonight I finished the first of the Senior Posters, since Newport’s Senior Night is less than a week away I started with Sarah’s poster. The poster has been sent off to the printer, but you don’t have to wait for the print to see the poster, here is a peek at Sarah’s winnings:
The parents of Kanyen Bauer (the SHS Boys Varsity Soccer starting Goal Keeper and IEL Keeper of The Year) approached me about getting a large print of one of Kanyen’s saves. I figured I could come up with something even better than a large print, so I worked up a montage of the play to be printed as a 16×24 on metallic paper and mounted as a standout display. The finished product was delivered to the Bauer family after being on display at the Boys Soccer banquet where it received rave reviews from all who saw it! With Christmas shopping gearing up I thought it would be a good idea for me to start dropping some hints about possible gift items, perhaps a custom photo montage might just fit the bill. Take a look at this one, your screen is not quite the same as that metallic paper, but it will have to do. Click the photo for a larger view.
