Culver Academy Senior- Carina


After the dust from a busy Graduation Weekend settled, Ginny and I had the opportunity to photograph Culver Girls Academies senior Carina before she went home to Florida. Carina is a beautiful subject. We wish her the best of luck in her future. We are certain it’s going to be filled with many achievements.

Culver Academy Senior Night Photos

This Spring, as I’ve done previous years, I photographed the Culver Academies seniors before their annual Senior Dinner Dance. For me, this is a very informal, casual, and fun event that I like covering as I’ve gotten to know many of the students over the years photographing their senior sessions, portrait sessions, and various sports. It is also one of the last times that I get to see the kids in a fun setting before they walk through the Gate or Arch when they aren’t running 16 different directions. As always the kids looked sharp and were dressed to impress. I’ve shared a few photos here. Other photos are posted at- http://www.culverphotos.com/2012_dance

Horsemanship Jumping-Fall Jump Show 2011

One of my favorite things to do is photograph horses. Photographing them during the jumping shows/tournaments is a lot of fun, though the lighting in the arena is so tricky. I’ve been experimenting with camera settings, lenses, and software-editing tools. I have finally found some combinations that I like. The Culver jumping team members do an amazing job at these tournaments. If you haven’t seen them compete, you should come out and watch them, as they perform well and represent Culver like true champions. And the horses aren’t too bad either!

CGA Varsity Hockey vs. Windsor

The CGA hockey team has started off the season well. They won their game against Windsor (2 to 0) after playing hard and playing well as a team. I look forward to watching their season progress and taking more photos.

Culver Academies’ Halloween 2011 Dance

Last weekend, I decided to venture to Culver Academies’ campus for their annual Senior Halloween party. Over the years, I’ve heard a little about this event, though I had never personally witnessed it. When Ginny and I attended Culver, they didn’t have a senior-only event for Halloweeen at Beason.

The party was a lot of fun and I have to say, the kids really do go all out with their costumes. There were some really good and creative ones that the kids came up with. I’ve posted some photos from the night here. To view additional photos from the evening’s crazy events, please visit our website at:


CGA Varsity Volleyball Sectionals vs. Jimtown

You would have never guessed it was so windy and cold outside with all the excitment and heat inside the Plymouth High School Gym Thursday night.  The Culver Academies CGA Varsity Volleyball girls killed it against Jimtown at the Sectionals with three amazing victories to bring home the win and conitnue their advance in the Sectionals. The first win was a close call for the Culver Academy girls with a score of 25-20, but not to be dissapointed, the fans got two out of the park (or should I say gym) matches with scores of 25-14 and 25-12. GREAT WIN LADY EAGLES.

As you look through the photos, please take notice of the determination and teamwork that the girls showed. The girls played really well and always had each others’ backs on the court. It was one of the funest volleyball games that I’ve watched.

Final Fall Garrison Parade

This past weekend was Culver Academies’ final Garrison Parade for the season and the parade that marked the end of the CGA 40th Anniversary Celebration Weekend. I suspect that had this been any other parade and not the last 2011 parade and the 40th CGA Weekend, the parade would have probably been canceled. It rained. It rained A LOT! It was also quite cold. Surprising, while huddled under my umbrella, I still managed to get some photos. I did have to add a little light to the photos as it really wasn’t that bright out, but, all in all, I’m happy with the results.

In my usual fashion, I shot EVERYTHING–the kids forming up, the cadets and coeds walking and marching over, and the students goofing around before the parade got underway. I shot a lot of photos. I narrowed it down to 413 that I posted!
