Today is my last day as an intern. Next week, I start my first full-time job as a staff photographer at the Wyoming Tribune Eagle in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This internship has been a great learning opportunity, but now I’m excited to be heading west soon for my next adventure. Before I leave, I thought I’d take a look back at a few of my favorite images from my internship in Peoria.[Read more…] about Adios Peoria

Guess it’s fitting that my first and last assignments of 2010 were sports. The paper had an extremely early deadline for color photos this evening (8 p.m.) so I unfortunately couldn’t stay longer than the first period. When possible, I always try to stay to the very end of sporting events to give myself more opportunities to make pictures. As I was leaving, the team scored two goals. Just my luck.
Peoria nursery seeks volunteers
Looking at this photo, how can you say no to volunteering for them? This is from an assignment to illustrate a broader story about charitable giving in 2010. This nursery – the Crisis Nursery at the Crittenton Centers – is in desperate need of volunteers. According to the nursery’s website, volunteers “assist staff and help provide emotional support for children by rocking, holding, talking, and help children in activities including art projects, story telling, singing, reading aloud, playing, eating, etc.” For the next few days, the nursery is operating with a skeleton staff since no volunteers have signed up for the holiday weekend.
