The week of August 7-13 Warmowski Photography will be providing photography coverage of the AWSA Nationals Waterski Championships (USA Water Ski). The 2011 Goode Water Ski National Championships will be held in Wilmington, Illinois (near Joliet). This will be the resource to access images and get information on the event.

We’d like to thank Jeff Surdej and Darr Leutz for asking us to photograph this year. We stepped in just a few weeks before this tournament when organizers realized previous arrangements for photography wouldn’t work out. Steve previously photographed a tournament at Leutz Lake in Jacksonville, Illinois. (Darr plays racquetball with Steve , and can probably show off a latent bruise from the court.)

  • Sunday note: Sorry photos were not more readily available – power in the vendor then did not come on until late morning and the delays put us out of sorts. Other caveat: the delay backed us up, and we think confused us so some photos are in the wrong category. If you see an image in the wrong category let us know.
  • Monday note: Sorry for missing a few events – the storm that stopped action blew through the vendor’s tent, threatening our computers. We had to head back to the hotel to get our gear back in action.
  • Plans for the rest of the week: We will have 2 photographers covering events through Saturday. Due to previous commitments, Steve & Tiffany will be closing down the photo booth Thursday. There will also be a delay in getting images on-line. Check back next week for images from Thursday-Saturday.
  • If you don’t see photos of your competitor, please contact us (e-mail). We only missed shooting a couple events, but we might have missed something when editing. Give us some info, and we’ll see if we can find your photos.

Link to on-line photo gallery. You can purchase small prints and bonus products on this site. Contact us email or 217.473.5581 for special requests (add name/record time to image and the like) and premium products (mounted prints, posters, books, etc.)

When ordering, identify photos using the 5-digit number at the end of the file name. For example, if you’re in Tuesday’s Mens 3 Slalom and you like image 09_M3SL12345, all you need to identify your image is 12345.

To provide the highest quality product, prints will be made at our professional lab and shipped to your home. As a bonus for ordering during the week of competition, your photo will be uploaded to Facebook for you to tag and share.
