NCAA Division II Swimming and Diving Championships

This weekend I photographed the NCAA Division II Swimming and Diving Championships for the Drury University’s athletics department. This was my first time photographing at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis and I was pleasantly surprised by the quantity and quality of light. When I’ve photographed swimming in the past, it has always been inside of darkly-illuminated high schools. The Drury women’s team finished fourth and the men’s team finished sixth.

Notre Dame loses to Iowa State in NCAA tournament

I traveled over to Dayton, Ohio last week to photograph Notre Dame’s short-lived appearance in the NCAA tournament. It was my first time shooting the tournament. This week, I’ll be following the Notre Dame women’s basketball team as they attempt to make a third-straight championship game appearance.
