Jacobs School of Music Piano Faculty

About a month ago I had the opportunity to photograph some faculty members in the Piano Department at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. My goal going in was to create a simple and replicable headshot style. I fired one Profoto B1 camera right feathering the light across the subjects’ faces through a 36-inch octa softbox. The texture in the background is a limestone wall about four feet behind the subjects.

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.
