We’ve been in full on prep mode for this event all summer, and boy are we excited to head to Huron, South Dakota for the 2022 South Dakota Summer Spotlight – Livestock Show!
Since 2017, we have been the official photographers of the event and it’s a pleasure! The Spotlight is unique to us, because it is 4 species — goats, beef cattle, sheep and hogs.
Let’s meet the crew.
We’ll see you in Huron, SD July 27-31st!
A quick note from each of our team members —
Hi Everyone! I’m Robin Kleine, and if you’ve followed Focus Marketing Group at all over the past decade, you’ve seen me at the backdrop. I grew up in Indiana, went to college at K-State, and now live in Sioux Falls, SD. Outside of work, the kitchen is my happy place and I’m known for keeping our crew fed and hydrated at shows and on the road. The SD Summer Spotlight is one of my most treasured events and I can’t wait to see my favorite people and watch your families/crew do big things!
Hey there! My name is Alexis, I am from all over but currently live in Kansas. When I am not in the picture pen or at a show with FMG, I am at home with my fiance starting colts and training rope horses. The FMG crew is like my second family, so I know anytime we are all together it is bound to a great time. I’m excited to see all of the exhibitors and their stock at this year’s Spotlight! Good luck to everyone and see y’all soon!
