Back to school means back to sports and Gold Medal Impressions, the area’s leader in superior sports photography is camera ready. Owner Dick Druckman is proud of his move in January to his new, larger gallery conveniently located at Windsor Business Park, Building 2A, 196 Princeton-Hightstown Road, West Windsor. Nationally renowned for his shots of professional sports that have captured iconic moments, Druckman is also famous for his dynamic photographs of local high school and college games.

“I had loved sports all my life and thrill to the drama of the moment at a high school baseball game as much as at Yankee Stadium when the batter crushes a homer out of the park,” says Druckman. “Parents and students want and deserve the same premier quality photography as the pros. Gold Medal Impressions delivers that same talent and creativity to each shot.”

As a back to school special, Gold Medal Impressions is having a sale from September 1 to 30th. Take 33 percent off iconic photos of local and professional teams. “Now’s the time. Send your students off to college with a professional shot of them in action on the field, or give them a picture of their favorite athlete captured at that perfect moment,” says Druckman. “I cover a variety of sports at local high school and college levels as well as the Olympics.”

Druckman’s rise to prominence in the world of sports photography is as remarkable as his pictures. Born and raised in Hartford, Connecticut, he went on to earn a BA degree from Trinity College and an MBA from Columbia University. Throughout his schooling, Druckman was an avid sports fan. He had a successful career at Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) in Princeton, where he eventually became Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning.

In 1984 Druckman took his family to the Los Angeles Olympics and had a number of his photographs published by several news agencies. It was at this point, that his passion for photography turned from a hobby to a profession and ultimately to a second career. In 2001, Druckman retired from BMS and established his sports photography gallery and business, Gold Medal Impressions, Inc.

Gold Medal Impressions is now the largest sports photography gallery in the country. Druckman has been able to marry his love of sports with his passion for photography. Over the past 35 years, he has captured thousands of award winning images at the past 12 Super Bowls, World Series, Stanley Cup Finals, NBA Championships, and Olympic Games. Many of these once-in-a lifetime photographs have appeared in Sports Illustrated, USA Today, Parade Magazine, and The Associated Press, which placed them in newspapers and publications around the world.
