Cover for Grow Magazine

Back in October I posted about a wonderful, fog-filled photoshoot for Grow Magazine, with the promise of sharing the photos from the actual shoot when the magazine hit the shelves. Well, that day has finally come. What is more exciting though is the editor decided to run my photo on the cover, since the shoot […]

Mifflin Street Block Party

Mifflin is a pretty surreal experience — probably more so sober than intoxicated. This year, for the third straight year, I wandered the few blocks of Mifflin Street with cameras in hand, hoping no one spills beer on me or runs into my equipment. Also, for the third straight year I was also probably the […]

Madhatters Spring Concert

This weekend was the fifth Madhatters concert I’ve shot. While working with them and shooting their concerts are certainly things I look forward to, I’m always wracking my brain to come with different angles, different locations, different…everything. Considering the concert has been at the Orpheum the last 4 times, this isn’t always easy. One of […]

Fake Candles and Politics

Candle-light vigils, no matter what they’re for, will pretty much always lead to a nice picture. So when I heard about the rally at the Capitol (yes, again) and the candle-light vigil, I thought I’d check it out, especially since I haven’t used my camera in what feels like ages (I think it’s been a […]

The Quiet Moments Matter

So it’s protest day 312 today. Well, not really, but it feels like it. Amazingly I managed to avoid actually shooting any of the protests over the last week in part because I was off doing other things (midterms are no fun) and I really didn’t want to go up there in the first place. […]

A “Capitol” Idea

Today was interesting. I had a photoshoot with the UW Madhatters, an all-male a cappella group, to take some publicity photos for their upcoming Spring concert. I’ve been shooting the Madhatters for about 2 years now, and one thing I’ve found is that it is beginning to get very difficult to do anything new. Essentially […]

Witnessing History

Today began simply enough; as I write this at 1:30Am, I strongly believe I witnessed something historical today. Not only for Wisconsin, but historical for politics around the United States. I am of course talking about the protests outside the State Capitol building in Madison, where exponentially larger crowds have descended on Capitol Square over […]

Battle for Bascom

For the second time in two years, UW-Madison cancelled classes for a snow day. And for the second year in a row, thousands of UW students trudged up Bascom Hill carrying food trays full of snow, flags, sling-shots, hockey masks and wearing any sort of protective gear they can get their hands on. It’s the […]
