Richard Mourdock

I covered Ind. Republican candidate for Senate Richard Mourdock campaigning in Fishers, Indiana a couple of weeks ago for The New York Times. He isn't making things easy on himself in this election.

Mike Pence Campaigning

I enjoy politics. Not because of my opinions on the candidates or topics but because of the passion surrounding it. It's the one thing that seems to stir people up more than anything and has such an impact on our world, both local and national. I don't care who the candidate is, I usually enjoy any assignment that comes up dealing with the topic. Here are some images from Indiana candidate for Gov. Mike Pence as he campaigns in Brownsburg, Indiana photographed for The Republic in Columbus, Ind.

Donnie Walsh

Last week I got an assignment from the New York Times to shoot a portrait of Indiana Pacers President of Basketball Operations Donnie Walsh. Toward the end of the phone call with the editor she added  "oh by the way, the shoot is in his office and you only have a few minutes." Great...Now my mind was racing and thinking what in the world am I going to do. I came early to check the place out and set up a light in the office while Walsh sat at his desk and we chatted. There was not much room in the office but he had a couch so we rolled with that. Here are a couple of images from the shoot. (He doesn't smile much but was very pleasant to work with) Read the article here

Indiana POW

I photographed a POW event in downtown Indy for the Indianapolis Star last weekend featuring five Indiana former Prisoner's of War. All five honorees had amazing stories and here is my favorite image from the event. This is former Indiana Governor Ed Whitcomb who was captured and tortured by the Japanese in WWII. He escaped by swimming through shark infested waters to an island where he eventually made contact with the United States Army.
