Pete and Danielle’s Engagement

I had the opportunity to shoot Pete and Danielle’s engagement photos here in Bloomington last week. They met as students at Indiana University so they asked to be photographed at a few places around campus since it is a special place for them. We were blessed with some stunning Fall foliage on campus and around Bloomington during the shoot.

Indiana University student James Steimle

I photographed James Steimle, a freshman business major from Naperville, Ill., last week for a Chicago Tribune story about the admissions system at the University of Illinois. Steimle, who had a 3.9 GPA in high school, wanted to attend the University of Illinois, but after his application was deferred for several months he decided to attend Indiana. At IU, he was directly admitted to the Kelley School of Business.

Ducktail Run

I spent the weekend in Gas City, Indiana with my parents and my fiancé at the 20th annual Ducktail Run Rod & Custom Show. The event is one of two in Grant County marking the anniversary of James Dean’s death in 1955. (Dean grew up in nearby Fairmount, Indiana). I’ve been coming to this show since I was a child. It’s a bit of a trip down memory lane to be able to come back as an adult and make a few pictures along the way. I was amazed at how much the show has grown in the last decade. On Saturday, the pedestrian-filled roads in the park deterred the participants from cruising in their classic cars. (I experienced this first hand: I drove my dad’s 1957 Chevy home on Saturday night and struggled to keep from hitting multiple pedestrians coming out of the park.) It’s still a great event – and a lot of fun to photograph – but the lack of cruising really takes something away from the show.
