Nebraska Appleseed Project on Display Soon

A few months ago I was contacted by Nebraska Appleseed. They wanted help creating a photography project that showed Nebraska residents using various social services (Head Start, etc.) to overcome challenges and succeed in life.

I traveled the state with Meera Bhardwaj, who composed short written essays about the 10 people we profiled. My job, of course, was to capture fitting portraits of each person.

I'm happy to say that the pictures turned out better than I'd hoped.

What's more, the entire project will be on display at the state capitol building from January 31 to February 4, on the main level near the information booth.

We're eschewing traditional paper prints this time around and going with some thick acrylic prints instead. I've never used this medium before so we're really excited to see how they look. I should add that if these prints turn out well, they'll be available to all of my clients.

After the capitol building event, this project will hit the road at venues around the state. These places haven't been confirmed yet.

More news on this event later.

Autumn Winding Down

Fall was very, very busy this year. I spent time training for and completing the Pinhoti 100-Mile Endurance Race in Alabama -- I survived the race and finished in just under 30 hours.

The other great part of my autumn was working with a number of fun families. I've been really lucky lately, meeting people who really welcome me into their homes and lives so that I can capture truly personal images. Here are a few sample shots.

Still more recent work

I have been so busy this fall that it's been hard to keep everything updated. Here are some images from recent shoots.
