On Assignment: Ford Tri-Motor

One of the great things about this job is that from day to day you never know what you might be doing. Mostly the days are fairly mundane but every once in awhile you have an assignment that allows you to experience something fantastic. Last week I had the chance to fly in the front seat of a Ford Tri-Motor airplane, one of only 199 made and one of six still able to fly. I got a bit nervous when the pilot climbed on the wings and checked the fuel level with a stick. Here are some images from a short 15 minute flight around Muncie, Indiana.

Wedding: Adam and Ana

At first I didn't want the pressure of shooting a friend and fellow photographer's wedding. In the end i'm really glad I did it and was able to capture the moments of one of the most important day's they will have together.

On Assignment: Cornfed Derby Dames roller derby team

Here are some images from a recent shoot with the new roller derby team here in Muncie. The pictures were shot at a local farm using one off camera flash. Although hectic at times, and battling with occasional downpours I was really happy with the results.

On Assignment: High School Baseball

I have been shooting quite a bit of high school baseball the past few weeks. He is one of my favorite recent sports images shot from the third base line. I have been waiting for this image all season and it finally came together for me.

On Assignment: Honor Guard

I was assigned to do a story on the local honor guard. A group of military veterans who perform at funerals of veterans. Here is my favorite image I shot while covering them at a funeral.
