I am no longer shooting new seasons of NMHS nor IHS sports
With much sadness, I had to give up the contracts for the sports portraits at NMHS and IHS. Due to the pandemic, sports teams are fielding fewer athletes, and the average order total is less. With both those combined, I cannot justify taking the time off from work to to shoot, edit, sort, and deliver the sports orders. Shooting all of you has been a real honor. It's been amazing seeing a lot of the athletes grow up and become young adults. I hope I was able to build their self confidence a little more, and show them that they are handsome/beautiful. I will miss photographing your schools. May you all find success on and off the field! - Dillon E.
If I have already photographed you, I can still order prints for you. There will be an added shipping charge though which will be added after submitting the order.
Welcome Sports Parents and Athletes!
My name is Dillon Engstrom. I started photographing HS athletes since 2009 at my Alma Mater. I wanted to photograph these young athletes to bring a little positivity to these athletes. Self-esteem and self-image are huge issues amongst the youth. If I could come into their lives for a moment, and show them a positive self image, I have made an impact into their lives. That's my goal, to have photos the athletes can be proud of.

Can I see the pictures before ordering?
No, sorry. I am a solo show. I dont have a support staff. To manage proofs would take many more resources than I have. Also trying to manage parents and athletes to approve the proofs would take too much time. Since 2009, Ive only had a small handful of Parents and Athletes contact me to say they dont like the photos. Sometimes I can work with them, sometimes not.
Can I do multiple poses in one package?
You can only do one pose per package. My ordering software doesnt allow mixing the poses with the package.
How long till we get prints?
I try to have them under a month. Again, solo show. I have a family and a very energetic 4 yr old son. I try my hardest to get them to you ASAP!
Do you do reshoots?
We do not offer reshoots. Sorry.
I didnt receive the right pose/print/etc.
Shoot me an email and I'll see what the problem was. Ive gotten better at finding ways to avoid this, but, alas, I'm still human. SORRY!
Do you offer other things than just prints or whats on your order form?
YES! I can do ALL the things. Cups, blankets, posters, etc... Shoot me an email and we can work out the details.
