The Fall Sports Season is Here!

The days are getting a little shorter, and the evenings are cooling off, a sure sign that fall sports are kicking into high gear!  I am so excited to be finished with my cancer treatment, having finished radiation therapy last week, just in time to start regaining my energy and getting fired up for the fall sports season!  I started my season with an exciting high school boys' soccer match between the Sturgis Scoopers and Vermillion Tanagers in Sturgis Saturday afternoon, culminating in a tie score of 1-1.  Here are a few highlights from the game.

 The entire gallery can be viewed at Thompson Photography.  If there is a sports activity coming up that you would like covered, give me a call at 605-641-2335 or email me at and I will put it on my schedule!

Time for Some Kool Deadwood Nites!

Although the days are still hot, the nights are cooling off, which means it's time for Kool Deadwood Nites!  Classic car buffs anxiously await this weekend, as classic cars from all over the country pour into the area to convene in Deadwood for a weekend of fun including poker runs, BBQs, and free concerts!  We headed to Deadwood for a little while last night to check out some of the cars, and are definitely planning on several more trips throughout the weekend!

Days of 76 Rodeo

Although I wasn't able to stay for the entire performance, I had a great time photographing part of Thursday night's Days of 76 PRCA rodeo in Deadwood! I can't wait until I recover from my chemotherapy completely and can actually cover entire events again!  Here are a few favorites from the night...
