This year I have been struck by the visual oddness of the COVID-19 crisis. This pandemic is forcing us to reimagine things we used to take for granted like going to the movies. IU Cinema got creative and used the university’s empty football stadium to screen Giuseppe Tornatore’s 1988 masterpiece, “Cinema Paradiso.” The screening was also the final public event for IU Cinema’s founding director Jon Vickers. It’s been a great pleasure for me to work with Jon over the years photographing IU Cinema’s various events. The event was a fitting send-off and a rare opportunity for members of the IU community to gather amidst the pandemic.

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.

Game development students at Indiana University gathered last month for the GameDev@IU fall semester kickoff jam. During the event, students with varying skillsets form teams and create functional video games within three hours.

Here are a few images from a recent fashion-esque photo shoot at IUPUI. My task was to show new apparel available at the school’s bookstore. I don’t fancy myself as much of a fashion photographer, but I tried to treat this shoot as a miniature version of a fashion shoot. Armed with a couple of Profoto B1s, I shot all the models – student employees at the bookstore – within about a 50-yard radius of the store at the IUPUI Campus Center.

Last week, I did a few short drone flights in the evening for an IU Communications project. While I was out and the evening light was nice, I decided to get a few quick shots of this limestone trident on the side of the Wildermuth Intramural Center (WIC), the former home to the Indiana Men’s Basketball team. One of the coolest parts about drone photography is being able to see and capture things from angles otherwise not possible.

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.
