Light it up

Kids these days. (Last day of the state basketball tournament.)



I haven't been using strobes at the state basketball tournament this year, but I managed to sync with Steve Pope's lights for one frame.


Dreaming of summer

In the midst of a brutal January, I'm dreaming of summer garden features and chasing patches of sunlight.


Favorites of 2013

I'm a little late to the game here, but, wanted to share my favorite photos of 2013. This year the Gazette staff put together a gallery over on reFocus, and once again I'm so proud to work with such a talented group of photojournalists. A few of my favorites from the year are shared here, along with the tearsheets from the printed pages.



Looking for light

In the darkest of all imaginable rooms, Cedar Rapids casino investors made their case to the Iowa Racing and Gaming commission. A TV crew and a projection screen provided brief spots of light in the darkness.


Marion Avenue nativity

For the 39th year, Marion Avenue Baptist Church in Washington put on a live animal Christmas play. Not all the animals were at the rehearsal I photographed, but I was still completely in awe of the production. Make sure you read Alison Gowans' story for the Gazette, and see more photos.
