It’s been awhile…(African drumming and more to come)

Hello! It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted on here. I’ve been shooting a ton despite what it looks like from the lack of blog posts. Moving to the Boston area and trying to establish myself in an unfamiliar place has proved difficult, but I have found fairly steady work shooting a variety of assignments for Wicked Local, which owns many of the town papers in the area. This broad coverage area has opened up a variety of interesting and challenging assignments for me. This is my most recent assignment from Friday: African drumming at an elementary school. I have covered something similar to this before and loved the atmosphere of both times. The kids are always so excited to play with the drums and learn and it usually makes for great photos. The children were in one room for the workshops and that proved to be some what visually difficult, but here’s what I got.

My first (almost) week with the Daily Hampshire Gazette

So, I have been in Massachusetts for about a week now, and I have been pretty busy! I have about 3 assignments a day on average I think. I have loved all of the assignments so far, and they have been interesting in their own ways. Some have been a little more challenging than others. For example, the Amherst high school baseball field has less-than-desirable lighting for sure, an obvious downside for sports. I drifted away from regular news shooting for awhile to focus on sports so the change of pace is nice to mix it up a little. I’m not going to post all of my selects, but just some of my favorites from the few days I’ve worked there. And a disclaimer just for good measure…

Sports portion – a rough edit.

This is my (very) rough edit of my sports portfolio so far. My sports archive is pretty extensive from over a long period of time. I have been going back and re-toning some of them which is making a difference in what I decide to add. I hope to spend my last semester shooting more since I will have more free time than I have ever had in college. I am really looking forward to the opportunity to utilize the time to work on some projects for myself.
