36th Annual Bucks County Lions All-Star Football Highlights

Each school-year, we seem to conclude our sports photography coverage the way we start it: with football. And the 2010/2011 school-year was no exception, as we juggled our schedule to photograph the twice-postponed 36th Annual Bucks County Lions All-Star Football Classic this year. Mother Nature provide a much-welcome weather break on Monday evening, June 13. And this year’s North all-stars maintained a persistent attack over the South, resulting in a 49-28 victory for the North team after 52 minutes of intense football action at War Memorial Field in Doylestown, PA. For one last time this school-year, we’ve selected our favorite close-up images of the evening that tell the story David-Nicholas style through one of our HD WebShows which has football action written all over it. We trust that our images along with the accompanying music will conjure up the emotional intensity and competitive spirit of this year’s all-star game! So adjust your audio, click the “play” icon in the video window below, and enjoy!!!

See a few images that caught your eye? These images and many more from the game — along with a photo roster of players as they were announced onto the field — have been posted to our online proofing galleries under Lions Club All-Star Football.

We wish the Class of 2011 the very best in all their post-graduation plans, and we wish our entire client community a safe and pleasant Summer!

CBE Baseball: Banquet Marks Another Year of Team Photography Coverage

Yes… it’s that time of the year again. And we were more than pleased to once again participate in this year’s end-of-season banquet celebration for Central Bucks East Baseball. Nine seniors will be leaving the team after graduation in June, and we provided each senior with a “2011 Season Highlights” DVD along with a personalized poster providing a lasting memory of their unique contribution to the team for the 2011 season. The posters were printed on pearlescent-finish paper and mounted to black foam-core. Although delivered as a finished product as-is, the poster can be optionally framed at the client’s discretion. Click on the “play” icon in the center of the flash-gallery window below to begin viewing each of the 9 posters, presented in order of the player’s jersey number.

A complete set of those images used in the season-highlighter DVDs and more have been also posted to our online proofing galleries under C.B. East Baseball 2011 Season. Enjoy, Patriots baseball fans!!!

We extend our best wishes to this year’s graduates! Congratulations, Class of 2011!!!

CBE Lacrosse: 2011 Marks 2nd Time in 5 Years That Patriots Advance to PIAA State Semi-Finals for Mens LAX

It’s only natural for a team to feel a sense of disappointment when they don’t come up on the winning side of the final score, which is what happened to the Patriots this past Tuesday afternoon at the hands of defending state champion Conestoga. But in retrospect, 2011 marked the 2nd time in five years that the C.B. East Mens LAX program has advanced to the PIAA state semi-final level, an accomplishment that should leave this year’s team feeling extremely proud. Our final HD WebShow this season for C.B. East LAX highlights the terrific effort put forth by this year’s Patriots team going up against Conestoga, one of the top-ranked high school LAX teams in the country. Enjoy, Patriot fans!!!

As always, individual images in the WebShow have also been posted to our online galleries under C.B. East Mens LAX 2011 Season. And families interested in viewing this year’s LAX WebShows on wide-screen, home-theatre TVs are most welcome to contact the studio for a set of DVDs. If you’ve enjoyed the WebShows here on the small-screen, you’ll be truly impressed when viewing our close-up images on the big-screen set to music in a home-theatre environment!

We at David Nicholas Photography & Design have enjoyed capturing some great Patriot moments during the 2011 season, and we extend our best wishes to this year’s senior Patriots in all their post-graduation plans!

PIAA District One Softball Post-Season: Top Teams Make For Tough, Competitive Contests

Following the Memorial Day Weekend, our schedule gave us the opportunity to bring our world of professional image-making to the Pennsbury, Neshaminy and Hatboro-Horsham high school communities as this year’s District One “post-season” ladies softball tournament wound to a close. First up was one of Tuesday’s semi-final games in which Pennsbury battled out their 3rd win (in as many outings this season) over their perennial conference foe Neshaminy by a score of 5-2 in searing 93-degree temps on the field. Our photography coverage of the game is being presented here in a WebShow of still-images set to high energy music, so softball fans can re-live highlights of the game — David-Nicholas style! Adjust the volume of your audio, and click on the “play” icon in the video window below for a special collection of our favorite images from the game. Enjoy!!!

After capturing semi-final action on Tuesday, it seemed only natural to follow the district’s #1 (Pennsbury) and #2 (Hatboro-Horsham) seeds into the 2011 District One Final on Thursday, June 2nd at North Penn High School. As expected, the contest lived up to the excitement you’d expect when the tournament’s two top-seeded teams do battle. And in this case, Hatboro-Horsham broke through a 5-5 tie to take this year’s District One softball trophy with an 8-5 win over Pennsbury. The contest made for some great moments that we’re especially happy to present in another “David-Nicholas” WebShow for softball fans. Enjoy!!!

Capturing these images is something we do as part of our profession, and we endeavor to present the most special images in a way that evokes emotion and tells a story. Along the way, we can’t help but make an observation that almost seems too obvious, but we’ll say it anyway — namely, once you’re looking at the top teams in a tournament, there’s just such an indisputable amount of raw talent on display as teams progress through the bracket, its nearly impossible to not notice! Sure… nerves can be rattled, and lots of lessons are there for the learning as competition becomes more intense. But all in all, these young athletes deliver tremendously well under particularly tough conditions. And we wish all the top District One teams much success in the upcoming PIAA State Tournaments that are currently underway or (as in the case of softball) those that will begin the week of June 6th. Best of luck, everyone!!!

Special note to softball families who are new to our website… All the images in our WebShows are also posted to our professional photography online proofing galleries, so visitors can view images one-by-one at their own pace. Each image has been mastered to the highest professional standards. And if you see an image that captures your emotions, keep in mind that our high-resolution camera files make for extremely impressive wall-prints, personal yearbook albums and poster montages. Even the WebShows featured here can be ordered in DVD-format for viewing on your large, wide-screen display in the home. There truly is no better way to hold on to special memories of very special times than with a David-Nicholas original creation. We’re passionate about capturing special moments for you, and we hope you’ll be truly impressed with the results we deliver each and every day. Let us know what you think!
