Celebration Names Shiflet Official Photographer



Shane Shiflet Photography has been named the Official Photographer of the 2012 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.  Shiflet will provide all of the photographic needs of the Celebration and its customers.  

 “Mr. Shiflet did an outstanding job photographing the events and activities during the 2011 Celebration,” said Celebration CEO Doyle Meadows.  “Shane provided quality workmanship and service to our customers last year and we look forward to working with him again in 2012.”

Dr. Meadows pointed out that multiple photography companies had been utilized in the past but that it was much more workable and organized using one company to handle photography at the show.  The Celebration Advisory Committee expressed the concern of owners and trainers being overwhelmed by multiple photographers and sales representatives at the Winners Circle in the Celebration Plaza.

In 2012, Shiflet will provide commercial photography in the Winners Circle and will have photographs available for purchase.  “This is an attempt to honor the wishes of our customers and sponsors and allow them time to enjoy their success without the hassle currently experienced in the Winners Circle,” said Meadows.

Following the recommendation of the Advisory Committee, Charles McDonald, Assistant to the Show Manager and Celebration Board member, discussed this problem last year with the managers of the companies involved and asked for their cooperation.  Unfortunately, this was not successful and changes have and will be made to bring this situation under control.
