203 Photography Sailing Calendars

This year we had the pleasure of shooting the Park City Regatta, and although we had never shot from a moving boat before, we found it to be an exhilarating new perspective on shooting sports. The water was a bit choppy making it necessary to shoot fairly fast (1/500th of a second). The Fayerweather Yacht Club was kind enough to provide us with a boat to go out and do a test run on during their normal Wednesday night races.

The nice thing about the summer night races is that you can capture much more dynamically lit images with the sun going down, in contrast to the Regatta which was held at noon, with the sun directly overhead. These pictures are products of that Wednesday night race, and the 2010 Park City Regatta. They are all available for purchase simply by clicking the photo, or click here to view the galleries.

We will also have Sailing Calendars available within the next couple of weeks that will feature the races and the regatta in Long Island Sound. In our continuing efforts to support Swim Across the Sound, we have partnered with Barbara and John Hannan of Send Out Cards, and members of and a member of the Housatonic Boat Club to sell these calendars and donate a percentage of the proceeds directly to Swim Across the Sound.  If you’re interested in purchasing one, or twenty, please click here.

If you have race, Regatta, or event next year, please feel free to contact us regarding including us in your plans. We are more than willing to work with your club or organization to help you raise funds through photography of your members in action. Click here to drop us an email.

203 Photography to partner with VAC for firefighter exhibit

203 Photography is sponsoring an exhibit at the Valley Arts Council’s new gallery on September 11th to honor firefighters, and raise awareness of the time, commitment, and risk that our volunteer firefighters here in the Valley face daily.

The Gallery is located in the former Hotchkiss Hose co. firehouse in Derby. The exhibit will feature artwork and memorabilia that revolves around a theme of the fire and rescue services. Beverages will be available and we’re working on a wine tasting. We’re also finalizing the details of a raffle to benefit the families of the two Bridgeport Firefighters who recently fell in the line of duty.

Artists can submit their work at the Gallery at 37 on Friday 9/10. Contact me for further details.

Fayerweather Yacht Club Race – 6/30/2010


CLICK HERE for the full 6/30/2010 Race Photo Gallery

Recently, we partnered with the Fayerweather Yacht Club to become the official photographers for Park City Regatta. The regatta is held to raise funds for Swim Across the Sound, an event held by St. Vincents Medical Center foundation to benefit cancer patients. Swim Across the Sound helps patients on a case-by-case basis with specific needs such as medication assistance, free transportation to treatments and appointments, wigs and prostheses, day-care scholarships and support groups.

This Race is co-sponsored by three yacht clubs, the Fayerweather Yacht Club, Housatonic Boat Club and the Black Rock Yacht Club. We were asked to go out on a powerboat in order to have a better vantage point during the race; we were excited to try photography from a boat, as we have never attempted that before, but asked that we be allowed to go out on a test run. It was interesting, to say the least, but after shooting for a few minutes; we really started to get the hang of shooting while being rocked in every direction. The pictures from the test run can be seen and/or purchased HERE. There is a “buy” button right above the photo which gives you the opportunity to purchase the print in a variety of sizes as well as a simple print, canvas, gallery wrapped canvas (my favorite) or famed print. If you have any questions or special requests for a certain print, please feel free to drop me an email at av@203com.com.

The photos from the regatta will up very soon.

We were happy to donate a print on canvas of the Fayerweather Lighthouse to be auctioned with all proceeds to go to the Swim Across the Sound. We had a great time doing it, and would like to thank Betsy and Catherine for the opportunity, everyone at FYC for their hospitality, and Rich Parker for the awesome ride!
