Mizzou vs. Furman

Got to shoot the Mizzou game against Furman today.  Some clouds rolled in just about game time and created some great light to shoot in.  It was a pretty mismatched game which made for a lot of touchdown passes/runs to photograph.  Final score: 52-12 Mizzou.

Ghost Hunting

Chelsea and I went on a ghost hunt / “paranormal investigation” with the Kindred Moon Paranormal Society this past weekend to do a story for the Columbia Missourian.  We were supposed to go and investigate paranormal activity at Bridal Cave in Lake of the Ozarks but a wedding reception canceled those plans.  Instead, we went to a railroad bridge on the Katy Trail that is rumored to have a one-armed man lurking around it.

I decided that I wanted to photograph the entire night without a flash… only flashlights.  I figured a flash would make things look too unnatural.  To really get a feel for what it was like, I felt we needed to use only the flashlights.  Although Bridal Cave would have been a little more visually interesting, I think we did good with what we had.  Below is the multimedia piece that Chelsea and I put together along with a few of my photos.

Mizzou Volleyball

Shot through one of the big banners hanging in the Hearnes Center.  I got bored at my second volleyball game of the day and played around a bit:

Another School Year

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while (I know, I know, you were all crying yourselves to sleep). But, since driving home from Reno I have been busy moving in, going to meetings, and getting back into another year of grad school. This semester I will be working for the Columbia Missourian so once I get into that groove, I’ll start to post new images.

In the mean time, here are a couple of random shots from the summer that I never posted.  The first one is from an assignment I went down to Las Vegas to shoot.  It was for a story on a local kid who plays for a summer basketball team in Las Vegas and is being recruited by a few different schools.  The next two photos are of the “Hot August Nights” classic car show that ran for a week in Reno.  Its one of the biggest car shows in the country and people drive in from across the country to attend.
