I was honored to be approched by the Ed Posh Scholarship Foundation board to photograph Ed for this years benefit. They felt that a fine portrait of him would be of interest to the supporters of the foundation, and it was decided to auction off the images at the 17th Annual Shootout, which took place on July 20th at the Village Links Golf Course. As the first Head Golf Professional at the Village Links of Glen Ellyn, he created an environment for golfers of all levels where they could participate in social and competitive events that were typically offered only at private clubs. Known for working without a sick day or vacations, Ed became the Ambassador for the Village links and worked tirelessly to establish golf events, gave generously to the course customers and especially the junior golfers. In 1995 the Ed Posh Scholarship Fund was created to honor his many contributions.
Since then, over $470,000 in scholarships have been given to 66 Posh Scholars, and 49 have already graduated. In 2011 there will be 16 scholars collectively receiving $40,000 in assistance. With your help we hope to fund even more students. To that end, it was decided not only to acution off the portraits of Ed at the fundraiser, but to allow additional images to be purchased through a special website set up by Lori Sorrells Photography.
All our portraits are fully retouched, enhanced and printed on the finest quality photographic paper. The special finishes we add to our images will protect them and eliminate the need for framing behind glass. The size of the Gallery Wrap canvas at the auction was 11x17. That size is regularly priced at $370.00. You can order your own in that same size or finish, or you can choose a different size, a different finish or a different pose. All prices listed are the regular studio prices, they are not marked up for this event. But since we wish to donate to the cause as well, a full 25% of your total purchase will be given back to the Ed Posh Scholarship Fund.
This website can be found by using the following link:

The site will be up for 60 days. Once you enter your information, you can view the images and create a folder for your favorites. Be sure to check out all the order options, under each image, there is a tab "Buy Photos" for the standard prints (like the 5x7 prints with the gold bevel edge you saw at the event) and also "Buy Products" for the Gallery Wraps like the 11x17 size we auctioned off.
And as a last note, there are also Gift Certificates available, found under the "Buy Products" tab, and they will also generate a 25% donation to the Fund. Please consider giving a gift of a family portrait to yourself, a friend or family member, as we do work closely with our clients to create special portraits that will be treasured for years to come. We would love to meet you and make your family moments worthy of being displayed in a place of honor in your home.
Thank you for visiting our website, and for your interest in the photography.
