11th USA International Harp Competition

Last month I photographed the 11th USA International Harp Competition at Indiana University in Bloomington. I’ve been a big skeptic of the mirrorless camera craze. But after a few days of this competition I finally understood one of the greatest upsides to mirrorless: silence. Midway through the competition, I rented a Canon EOS R. I was blown away by this incredible camera. It allowed me to remain completely silent yet capture a variety of images of the harpists in action. When the world’s greatest young harpists are competing all-out for a $55,000 harp (and other prizes), I didn’t want to be the distraction that could make a difference in the competition. This was one of the most fun photo shoots I’ve had recently and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to have captured the event.

The Media School at Indiana University

Last fall I was tasked with capturing images for a new website for The Media School at Indiana University. The school encompasses several disciplines including everything from journalism to video game design. I was asked to shoot in a photojournalistic style since photojournalism is one of the areas of study within the school. (I’m an alumnus of the IU School of Journalism, the precursor to The Media School.) Stylistically for me, this often meant shooting with prime lenses with very shallow depths of field in ambient light. It was a fun project and a unique challenge to capture representative images of the school’s various units.
