Indiana University South Bend

A couple weeks ago, I made a trip back to South Bend to photograph the dedication ceremony for the Vera Z. Dwyer College of Health Sciences at Indiana University South Bend. While I was in town, I used the opportunity to shoot some features and student life photos around the campus. It was great to be back in South Bend for a night and have the opportunity to see some familiar places and faces.

Dwyer College of Health Sciences on Tuesday, March 31, 2015, at Indiana University South Bend. The naming was in recognition of a $5.85 million gift from the Vera Z. Dwyer Charitable Trust. The gift is the largest ever given by a single donor to IU South Bend. (James Brosher/IU Communications)

Indianapolis Motor Speedway unveils 500 Festival cars

Last week I photographed the unveiling of the 500 Festival cars at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. These aren’t pace cars but rather the “official” vehicle used by race/track officials and VIPs around Indy to promote the Indianapolis 500 in the weeks leading up to the race. Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard was there to drive a Chevrolet Volt pace car and he seemed to be in good spirits after the Indiana RFRA “fix” was signed into law earlier in the day:

Odds and ends for Indiana University

In the past couple of months, I have slacked a bit in blogging my recent work. In that time period, I’ve shot a variety of things from features to portraits to little slices of campus life. Here are a few favorites from my daily work on assignment for Indiana University Communications:

Retired U.S. Army Col. Richard Welch

Last month I had the opportunity to photograph Richard Welch, a retired U.S. Army colonel, for a story in The Wall Street Journal about the U.S. government’s delay in processing visas for Iraqis who assisted Welch and other American troops during the war. With the rise of the Islamic State and other factions hostile to the United States, these Iraqis and their families now find themselves as targets as they wait years for visas to enter the U.S.

Retired U.S. Army Col. Richard Welch speaks to a colleague as they eat at an off-campus Turkish restaurant near campus on Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015, in Bloomington, Ind. Welch is a doctoral student in Law and Democracy at the Center for Constitutional Democracy at the IU Maurer School of Law. The only thing on the wall in his shared office is a tourist map of Iraq from 2008. During his time serving in Iraq, Welch relied on several Iraqis to build local support for the U.S. mission. Now the lives of those Iraqis remain in danger as they wait years for visas to enter the U.S. Welch has filed letters of support and says he is ashamed the administration has failed to resettle thousands of those who helped save American and Iraqi lives.
