Chesler Photography Extreme Sports Photography

About Chesler Photography Sports Division

It is with great pride that I introduce our new website and Sports Division of Chesler Photography. Our philosophy behind this new division of our business is to not only do the photos for sports leagues in a way that hasn't been done before, but to offer teams and individuals the opportunity to have really cool, unique photos done with a huge range of cool products. What makes our league photography different is that we don't want to rush in and rush out just to collect as many order envelopes as we can, in fact, we don't want to rush at all. We want to slow the process down and take time with each athlete to get great expressions with great lighting, even if it takes us an extra day or two. Think of it as the fine dining of sports leagues instead of fast food.

In addition to the league photography, we are also doing really unique Extreme Sports images where we blend several images together in to one collage with really cool Photoshop technique for an end result that has no comparison. We are doing these for our high school seniors as well as teams and individuals, both in portrait sessions and action photos during tournaments.

About Steve Chesler

Throughout my life I've had a vision. In that vision I was a successful photographer with a beautiful family and most important of all, happiness. I was always determined to be happy in my career and lifestyle, even if it meant not being the richest man in town. If I had happiness, I had success.

My vision has arrived. I married my beautiful wife Sue, who I met at SUNY Brockport. We welcomed our daughter Sarah into the world in March 1998, and our son, Edwin "Cade", in January 2002, and I have a photography business that's getting stronger everyday.

I have found success, and attribute it to my desire to be the best I can in whatever I set out to do, without knocking anyone else down to do it. My philosophy in business as well as life, is based on integrity and quality.

As you browse through the pages of this website you will see the quality of the work I strive to produce. What you can't see is the service behind the image. All too often, quality customer service and integrity are put on the back burner when someone thinks their photos alone will make up for the difference. I'm proud of the fact that I can offer both.
