Dear Prospective Client:

The purpose of this correspondence is to provide you with a confirmation of our experiences from our partnership with Action Shots Professional Sports Photography.   Please allow me a moment to expand upon our relationship.

PIAA 's dealings with  Action Shots has provided a requested  and necessary opportunity   to  highlight student-athletes  in the competitive  arena. Action Shots photos  are fabulous and the artwork  used to capture the moment  in a collage or pictorial setting makes a statement  of what the competition  was really like. This has been a positive experience for us as well and the student-athletes and their families.

Their presence at our championships has added to the celebratory,  family fun atmosphere we strive to create  and  their   unique  product  offerings  combined  with   their   state-of-the-art   technology   and professional staff has made them a fan favorite.

This partnership has created a new stream of revenue to assist us in further  enhancing opportunities  for our member schools and their student-athletes.  Action Shots provided  us with a no-risk opportunity  to grow our events and their on-line ordering system allows for our families, fans and schools to browse and purchase quality  pictures of their  student-athletes  either  on-site, or in the comfort  of their  own homes.  Additionally,  it allows for out of town  relatives and friends, who may not have been able to attend the championships, to be part of the championships experience.

Action Shots  has provided  PIAA with  detailed  and comprehensive  sales accounting as well  as timely commission  checks that  satisfy the  audit  needs of both  organizations.  We are very  happy with  our relationship  with Action Shots and we look forward  to working with  them again this school year and, hopefully, many years to come.

Best Regards,

Dr. Robert A. Lombardi

Executive Director
