Threlkeld Tells Your Texas State Championship Story
Lal Threlkeld’s first venture into photographing shooters was in 1999 when he was hired to photograph four sporting clays shooters
for a catalog. Needing a proper setting for the work, he went to the National Shooting Complex during the National Sporting Clays Championship. Like
most people seeing such an event for the first time, he was amazed by the number of shooters and the amount of activity.
With photography in transition from film to digital, he recognized that his digital equipment would make it possible to take many shots
and print photos to order. By the next year, he was photographing skeet, sporting clays, and trap shoots. Lal also photographs the winners and awards
presentations on the podium and at the banquets. Lal expects to photograph every shooter at the Texas State Championship, but he encourages anyone who
wants photos to stop by his booth with any special requests. He can usually accommodate special set-ups for individual or groups of shooters.
Lal and his state-of-the-art equipment will be set up in the clubhouse during the State Championship. Shooters will be able to view photos
on computer screens, select the ones they want, have them customized with logos, choose the size and format, and Lal will print them.
If you’d like Lal to tell your Texas State Championship story in pictures, stop by his booth.
"I love doing this," says Lal. "When I print that photo and they smile, that makes my day."
