Local Dive Event

Mike, Terri and I spent last weekend at the 2009 USA Spring Region 9 Championship Diving Event, held at the Mission Viejo Aquatics Complex, the home to the famous Mission Viejo Nadadore Swim and Dive Teams. This event went on both Saturday and Sunday, and we had a booth set up where we were offering on site image selection and printing. We additionally offered custom posters and several other great photo products. There were local teams competing, as well as teams from as far away as New Mexico. There were a total of 4 events each day, with about 170 divers who participated in doing 6 dives per event. Mike and Terri photographed not only every event, but every dive in the event taking over 16,000 images over a two day time span, so you can imagine how exhausted they were come Sunday night. There were local teams competing, as well as teams from as far away as New Mexico. The weather could not have been better, and the people could not have been nicer. My niece has been on the Nadadore Dive Team for a couple of years now and I haven’t had the time to see many of her meets, so this was really great for me to be able to watch her take 2nd and 3rd place in the events she was in. Up until this weekend I never realized what a beautiful and spectacular sport diving is, and how talented all of the kids are. We want to give a big THANK YOU to the Nadadore organization for giving us the opportunity to photograph this local event. We were able to upload this event to our website to view and order photos, so go to our website to checkout some of the amazing images Mike and Terri were able to capture.
