Indiana University Olympic medalist swimmers

Back in August, I photographed a few of Indiana University’s Olympic swimmers after they returned home from the Rio games. I had the opportunity to shoot their portraits for IU social media after a media day availability. Our social media folks were looking for standard shots of each of them holding their medals. After I got that specific shot with each swimmer, I quickly shifted and shot these portraits. I don’t believe they’ve been used before, but it’s an example of shooting something for yourself after you’ve got “the shot” at a shoot. For better or worse, I use a very similar lighting setup on most of my portraits. This setup was an attempt to break out of that. I hung an octabox directly above the subjects and lit them primarily while standing in front of a mostly-collapsed umbrella to try to mimic a ring flash look.

Indiana University staff merit awards portraits

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to make portraits of a few Indiana University Bloomington employees who will be honored with staff merit awards next week. For the past several weeks, the only portraits I’ve shot have been lit and in the studio. It was refreshing to grab a 50 mm f/1.2 lens and challenge myself to find clean backgrounds in the environments where these staffers work on campus.
