2011 was a really good year for 603 Media Group. From portraits to weddings to private parties, sporting events, charity events, corporate product shoots and our own personal photo trips to various parts of New Hampshire and beyond, we met so many wonderful folks and were reminded of why we love doing what we do.
We covered the fantastic efforts of Upper Valley radio personality Chris Garrett’s “Tornado Relief 2011”. This event saw the community of the Upper Valley join together to fill a truck with food and goods that Chris then personally delivered to Joplin, Missouri residents affected by the worst tornado their area had seen in memory.
Coverage of the annual “Ride For The Fallen” charity motorcycle run is always a highlight for us. Skip and Rhonda Rollins of Newport host this event each year in honor of their son, Spc. Justin A. Rollins, who lost his life in Iraq in 2007.
Every September, we see pro boxing come to the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester. We have covered this event for the past two years in recognition of our friends from the Claremont Boxing Club who have had some very successful showings at this event.
The warmer months of each year see the start of all the great classic car meets in New Hampshire. This beauty is a regular with the Car Nutz in Newport:
The installation of New Hampshire sculptor Ernest Montenegro’s amazing piece, “Crosswalk”, was a real treat for us to cover. With home offices in both Claremont and the Manchester area, it was nice to see both regions represented in one amazing project!
The annual Pumpkin Festival in Keene is always great fun but the day after brings a lot of work that most event-goers don’t even consider. This gentleman was one of many volunteers and city workers helping to clean up the mess left by thousands of pumpkins and thousands of people!
Covering and supporting local music has long been an important part of what we do. This region is rich in musical talent and, if you haven’t taken the time to catch some of these acts performing, you’re missing a great time!
We won’t revisit every single photo shoot we did in 2011 here (the blog would be wayyy too long!), but suffice it to say that it’s been a fun year and we’re looking forward to even more great stuff in 2012! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/603media !
