Penn defeats Columbus North for first state championship

I photographed the Penn girls basketball team last night as they faced Columbus North for the IHSAA Class 4A state championship. The game was a freelance gig for my former employer, the South Bend Tribune. It was a cool experience to see a few familiar faces in the media room and on the court. Penn won 68-48, capturing the school’s first state championship.

A belated farewell to South Bend

A week ago today, I left my staff photographer job at the South Bend Tribune. I did so to follow my fiancée, Barbara Harrington, who accepted a reporting position at WTIU/WFIU in Bloomington, Ind. Being able to photograph South Bend and Michiana for the past two and a half years was a tremendous experience. From the BCS National Championship Game in Miami to the local horseshoe pitching club, I was given the opportunity to photograph interesting people, places and stories. My favorite part about working at the Tribune was the opportunity to get out of the office and talk with people on assignments. I worked with a newsroom filled with some incredibly talented journalists. I will truly miss it. Leaving a safe staff job was a leap of faith. While I’m sad to leave the South Bend community, I have already felt a newfound jolt of creative energy in Bloomington. I’m not sure what the future holds at this point for me professionally, but I’m excited for the next chapter to begin. Stay tuned.

Water fight at the St. Joseph County 4-H Fair

On the Fourth of July, I was sent out to the St. Joseph County 4-H Fair to shoot features. Quite literally the first thing I spotted after the reporter and I parked was a group of kids having an elaborate water fight in the cow wash stall. I lucked out because I didn’t realize it was a tradition for the members to have a big water fight after they are done competing. As they say, it’s better to be lucky than good. I got wet for the first frame below, but it was totally worth it.
