  • 2017 VA Field Hunter Championships

  • Thank you to Matthew and the Staff and to our Masters for a wonderful season in some definitely trying times. Thank you also for all the comments you've made on the photos I've shared on Facebook. I am glad that you have all enjoyed the photos almost as much as I have enjoyed taking them.

    One more thank you to everyone who has purchased prints or electronic copies of images from this season. As for the previous years' photos, this season's photos will be available on the web site for the foreseeable future, and I am always willign to make prints or sell copies of photos \from those previous years.

    Upcoming Meets / Events

    I will try to come down for time to time for Farmington's other events before cubbing begins in September, and I will post updates here and on my Facebook page.

    Gallery Updates

    I've added an alias table to my database, so now you can enter a URL like https://www.CathySummers.com/Opening-Meet-2014 directly into your browser's address window instead of having to remember that Opening Meet of 2014 was on November 8th from Mint Meadows. The best way to find a particular meet is still to use the dropdown lists under each season in the sidebar on the right or at the top of the page if you're viewing this page on a phone, and you can use the gallery search page to get for example all hunts from Mint Meadows.

    horse, rider, reflection
    My photos from Farmington Hunt Club's 2021 Hunter Trials on April 3 at Fox Ridge are now posted. I think it was a wonderful day, and i'm just sorry that i couldn't be in three places at once to simultaneously photograph the Junior course, the Open course and the "action" at the gate.

    My photos from the March 20th hunt from Millington are posted. Remember, you can also enter a URL like https://www.CathySummers.com/2020-2021-Last-Hunt for this and other "big" meets, if you don't remeber the date or location, while the easiest way to find a meet is through the drop down lists under each season as listed to the right (or above if you're on a small screen).

    My photos from the March 8th hunt from Yadkin are posted.

    My photos from the February 25th hunt from Millington are posted.

    My photos from the January 30th hunt from Yadkin are posted.

    My photos from the January 23rd hunt from Overstreet's are posted.

    My photos from the January 16th hunt from Green Mountain Station are posted. Sorry that I guessed wrong and tracked you instead of trying to anticipate.

    My photos from the 2021 New Year's Eve hunt from Mint Meadows are posted.

    To find the other hunts from the 2020-2021 season, or any other season, click on the "2020 - 2021" header in the list of years on the right, or above if you're on a phone or other small screen, to see the list of galleries for the current season. To see photos from an earlier year / season, click on the appropriate years, like 2014 - 2015, in the list on the right, or above, to access the list of all the hunts in that season that I was able to photograph. For some of the earlier years, I just have a sincle gallery for each season, since film was expensive and not as forgiving as digital sensors; when the light would turn bad, I couldn't just crank up the ISO "mid roll" and most color slide films topped out at ISO 200, or lower.

    Remember to folow the Catherine Summers' Photography Facebook page for updates to the galleries and other news. If you follow my Facebook page, you will learn about these updates as soon as the galleries are posted.

    I made a change to how you can order prints or electronic copies of the photos. Now, when you click on a thumbnail to see a larger view of a photo and click on the "Buy a Print / Copy" button, the form from the Buy a Print page opens within the window. Once you make you selection and click the "Add 2 Cart" button, the photo is added to your cart without taking you to the shopping cart page, so you can keep on browsing in the current gallery.

    Photos that are already in your cart are surrounded with a blue border, and there is a Buy button now in the gallery view, which takes you to the full Buy a Print page that contains the form as well as the print size and option price table. If you are looking at the photos on a desktop computer, I suggest setting the images per page to a large number, like 500, to get all of the thumbnails displayed at the same time, and then you can toggel the images per row using the buttons at the bottom of the page to see larger thumbnails to compare images or smaller thumbnails to see more of the gallery at the same time without scrolling. Remember als that you can click on the small "+" sign in the top right corner to expand the thumbnail holder to the full width of your window.

    If you don't want to use the online ordering system, I have created a new way for you to send me your shopping cart in an email. You will find that option on the checkout page.

    Cards

    I offer both prepackaged sets of note and greeting cards, and you can make your own collections. The minimum order is eight cards, and each image has to be used at least twice. For example, you can chose four images to get a set of eight or twelve cards, six images to get a set of twelve cards, or eight images if you're going to order multiple boxes. I normally sell cards in sets of eight or twelve physical cards with one extra envelope. Note cards (4.25 x 5.5) are $2.50 each when you order eight or more cards, and greeting cards (5 x 7 or 5.5 x 8.5) are $5.00 each when you order eight or more cards.

    I have these three collections of some of my favorite hunting images: Classic Images, Recent Hunt Images, and Four Foxes, of cards ready to go. I always try to have a few sets with me at most hunts, but it is probably best to order them in advance.

    Email me with a list of your favorite images, or just add your favorites to your shopping cart, and then let me know that you want cards instead of 4x6 prints.
