A week of guns

My week started off innocent enough. It was the first day that it really felt like Spring outside. I went to Baker Park to make a warm weather feature. I hadn’t been there for 20 minutes when some kids showed with toy guns – or so I thought. No. They weren’t real guns. But they were airsoft guns and probably didn’t belong on a playground. Some parents called 911 and reported these kids. While the kids weren’t shooting at anyone, […]

Trick shot master – Michael Harsha video

While in a meeting with the newsroom earlier this week, I asked everyone if they had any upcoming stories that they would like me to try and add some multimedia to. Our sports editor spoke up immediately with an idea. He was doing a feature story on a kid that shoots incredible basketball trick shots at the YMCA. Yesterday, I met up with the sports editor and the trick shot champion, Michael Harsha. I have done backboard still shots like […]

St. Anne Catholic Church audio slideshow

It has taken all that time to raise funds and rebuild. This was the churches dedication ceremony […]

Senate debate through video and photographs

Because of the relatively small venue, tickets to the event sold out almost immediately. It was a full house. I had the difficult juggling act of shooting stills while simultaneously […]

Not your everyday newspaper photos

Like I said in my previous post, I enjoy the challenge that comes with newspaper photojournalism. There is something different to shoot every day and I am obligated to make it visually appealing. Earlier this week, I was given the task to photograph two high school swimmers that made it to the state finals. The reporter was meeting them at the beginning of their swim practice. I think he was under the impression that I would come and take a […]
