Rural Snow

I'm pretty sure at this point the snow is never going to go away. There are some piles of snow that are taller than whole houses. It will be really nice when we can all go sled riding in July. So in effort to not shoot anyone else shoveling, scraping off their buried cars and snow-blowing, I hit the wilderness.

Cross Country Skiing

This is James Carson, a former IUP Football player. Matt Burglund sat down with James today on IUP's campus. Look for his story in the Indiana Gazette.
Sunday's Indiana Gazette will feature a story on Cross Country Skiing. Tiffany Chan and Mark Nicoll went cross country skiing at College Lodge in Indiana.

My Manning Shot

Last season while shooting the Steelers, I got the opportunity to cover the Colts more than one time. When a photographer is covering the home team of their newspaper...lets say the Steelers...they shoot in the direction the Steelers are driving. So in turn you end up with a ton of shots like this of the opposing teams offense. The goal is to get the Steelers defense running toward you...because in photojournalism, backs of head are bad. So in honor of the Superbowl today this is my shot of Peyton Manning (and a small sports photography lesson).Manning handing the ball off to Joseph Addai.

Snowtorious BIG: Day 2: Finale

After all the digging out has been done...or mostly done. Out came the snow enthusiasts. Here are a few photos of people playing in the snow or at least enjoying the 19 inches the borough of Indiana received.

Snowtorious BIG: Day 2

I almost feel bad for making fun of this storm and all the people who were in line at Martins buying 27 rolls of toilet paper. 70 bottles of water. Batteries. and everything else the craziness causes people to buy before big storms. It really turned out to be a huge snow producer. This is the MOST insane thing I've ever seen. About 19 inches of snow overnight?! I NEVER thought this would happen. I thought for sure, we would wake up and be disappointed as per usual. Everyone in Indiana is digging out this morning. Here are some shots from around town, within walking distance of work. My thighs are on fire. Walking in the snow is a work out. There were places where it was up to my knees. Totally insanity is all I can really say!

Snowtorious BIG: Day 1

When looking for a snowtorious feature I came across these lovely girls from St. Mary's who let me take photos of them building their German snowman named "Hans" who had a mustache and six pack abs. They worked on him for about two hours in the Oak Grove in front of Fisher Auditorium.
