1st after Graduating

So I graduated from the WKU photojournalism program two Saturdays ago and I am currently back at home in Virginia and fortunate enough to continue shooting freelance for the Free Lance-Star in Fredericksburg, VA. I shot my first assignments since I have been back this past weekend and here are a few of my favorites. I shot a high school track meet and a Civil War re-enactment. I love shooting for the paper on the weekends.

Cory Rodriguez, from King George High School, falls during the final heat of the 400 Meter Dash.  Rodriguez was in the lead before he fell. 

Noah Shipman, 11 of Sunbury, Pa., stands in the shade to stay cool while waiting for guests to walk by and see the tents.

Civil War re-enactors prepare their camps for visitors to view them after eating dinner at the Spotsylvania Courthouse Civil War re-enactment.

For my final project in the WKU photojournalism program I decided that I wanted to tackle a subject that I had never really worked with much before, politics. My goal was to make an interesting piece which is informative but also interesting and helps to inform about the actual people involved in the movement as opposed to just their political goals. I hope you like it!  To view the other projects that were produced by the students in my class they are located at .

Take Back The Night

So these photos are a couple of weeks old but being so busy with my capstone photojournalism project (which will be posted either later tonight or tomorrow) that I am just now getting a chance to post them to my blog.  These are from Take Back The Night 2011 in Bowling Green, Ky. which is a march to raise awareness about sexual violence.

Roomie :-)

So I was going through my photos on my external drive and I found this photograph that I taken one day when I came home from class.  It somehow got lost in the shuffle.  I just love the light in this photo and the sweet moment between Jess and her cat.  I am also very thankful for how amazing she has been in the past year and as I am getting ready to graduate I just wanted to post this and say thank you to her for always being there for me and believing in me as a photographer.  Now enough of the sappy stuff and on to the photo!
