Last month, I had the opportunity to spend a chunk of a weekend photographing the sights along Indiana USBR 235, a 120-mile leg of the U.S. Bicycle Route System between Indianapolis and Seymour, for a travel section feature in The Washington Post. This shoot was a lot of fun. Beyond a shot list of a few places to capture from the reporter, Andrea Sachs, I had the creative freedom to drive the route and make pictures. The route was gorgeous in all its peak fall foliage glory, and these photos cannot begin to do it justice. For years, I have enjoyed riding several of the roads along this route. This was a neat chance to combine a couple of my passions – photography and cycling – to showcase some of these hidden gems to a national audience.See more photos

I recently photographed the first family of Syrian refugees to resettle in Indianapolis for a story in The Washington Post. The story focused on refugees in Indiana and how they are coping since President Donald Trump’s election. Trump’s Vice President, Mike Pence, tried unsuccessfully to ban Syrian refugees when he was Indiana’s governor.
Back in August, I photographed Syrian refugees who have resettled in Indiana for a story in The Washington Post. Their resettlement comes in spite of efforts by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence who directed state agencies to halt Syrian resettlement. This week a federal appeals court affirmed a preliminary injunction blocking Pence’s order, dismissing it as “nightmare speculation.”
