I finally made the time to work as a volunteer for the True/False film festival here in CoMo after two years of being an attendee. It was a busy and wild weekend and it’ll probably take me weeks to get around to posting all about it but here’s a quick edit of my images from the March March, a wild and wacky parade of sorts that helps kick off the documentary film festival.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I spent significantly less time shooting this year than any year since I finished my undergrad. My first year of graduate school at the Missouri School of Journalism is now in the books and I’ve spent a lot more time learning about journalism rather than practicing it. Here are my favorite images of the past twelve months in no particular order. Rather than trying to collect my “best” images, I’ve decided to present the images from my school work and assignments that make me smile for one reason or another. Happy New Year all!

Carly Allen Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, in downtown Columbia, Mo. A Columbia native Allen has been playing music for five years but just started playing the mandolin "I’m a bass player and although I love playing bass it’s not my favorite thing to sing with," Allen said. "This was really fun to learn because the cords and the strumming make it super easy to sing with.” “It sounds great, I love it,” Allen said. “I love the mandolin.” Allen said that playing music makes her feel euphoric and takes her to another place. "When I play music I’m not really here per see I’m aware of being here, but I’m in the song and the feeling of the song and the story of the song and the meaning of the song," Allen said. "It really is like a place. Art is how you decorate space and music is how you decorate time.”

Erin Tillett Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, in downtown Columbia, Mo. Tillett is a junior at the University of Missouri where she studies marketing. "I’ve always been interested in consumer behavior and how they behave," said Tillett. "What makes people want something, what makes people buy something." Tillett is also an avid skier. "I’ve been skiing since I was four," Tillet said. "I don’t get to do it so often but when I’m doing it, I’m so happy."

Benjamin Rogers Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, in downtown Columbia, Mo. The Columbia native works in the produce department at Lucky's Market, 111 South Providence Rd. An avid reader Rogers is currently reading "Hannibal," by Thomas Harris and looking forward to traveling to London this summer. Rogers said that he also enjoys live music of any genres. "I live downtown and walk to all the places," Rogers said. "Don”t have to spend any gas, just walk around and get good exercise."

Gretchen Maune Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, at the Columbia Winter Farmer's Market, 601 Business Loop 70 West. Maune describes herself as one of those people who moved to Columbia for school and never left. The Blue Springs, Mo., native began working full time as a community activist for Grass Roots Organizing in December. “I started volunteering with them because I was an activist," said Maune. “I liked social justice issues and about five years ago I went to a rally at the capitol. I really got into it since then, I’ve worked on all kinds of issues."

Marian_Days_2014_01

A very belated post from the 2014 Marian Days festival, the the largest Roman Catholic festival in the United States. This was the 37th year for the event where between 60,000 and 80,000 Vietnamese-American Catholics gather at the Congregation of the Mother Co-Redemptrix in Carthage, Mo., which has a population just under 15,000, to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary. I shot part of the event for the Joplin Globe back when I was in school and have been itching to go back ever since. I initially planned on shooting a documentary story but I changed my mind and decided to take advantage of not having a deadline or editors and shot for fun and the joy of shooting. People camp on the grounds of the monastery and in the yards of nearby homes, there are religious lectures and programs, food booths selling Vietnamese cuisine and a huge outdoor mass every night. I will certainly return and do a more in-depth story on this when I can devote the time it deserves. Thanks for looking.

0511_loc_Perryville_Mayfest_04_AV

My Saturday assignments involved people racing two things one wouldn’t ordinarily think of as being “raceable,” beds and lawnmowers. I started off with the first festival of the year, Perryville, Mo.’s Mayfest which features a bed race involving silly costumes, sillier challenges and a lot of fun to be had whether you’re watching, participating or, most importantly for me, shooting. Next up was the Southeast Missouri Lawnmower Racing Association raising money for Relay for Life during their bi-monthly races in Patton, Mo. I shot a race last year and loved it so I was excited to see this show up on the schedule again. As always thanks for looking!

It’s prom season, which means high school kids dressing to the nines, loud music, and some rather challenging lighting conditions. How was I able to live before 6400 iso? The past few weeks my saturday nights have revolved around hustling between venues getting a mix of posed and candid shots, frantically moving a photo or two before deadline and then settling down to make photo galleries. Here are a few of my favorites from the last few weeks. Thanks for looking!

Baseball season is upon us. Working as a staff photographer at a newspaper a big part of your professional involves sports. Any sports fan knows about slumps, though the term is most often used in talking about our national pastime. The term also applies to photography. When you go out to make photos every day it’s inevitable that you’ll go through a time when no matter what you do your work doesn’t come out how you’d like. You find yourself in a slump. As a photojournalist and Kansas City Royals fan I can tell you there are few things more frustrating.

It’s frustrating because there is almost never an easy to point to, concrete reason that explains why this is happening, no simple answer to solving the problem. You just have to struggle though it until you reach the other side. It is a struggle. It is easy to succumb to despair when editing an assignment or gather clip contest entries and thinking to yourself, “Really? This is it? This is all I have?” Then without warning, without explanation, it’s over.

The last few months I’ve been slumping. Hard. Hated almost everything I was putting out. I just couldn’t SEE and I didn’t know why. I was blind. I felt like there was a curtain over my eyes. Then last week, it lifted. All of a sudden the curtain lifted. I could visualize, anticipate and SEE again. I don’t know why and, to be honest, right now I don’t care. I just hope it sticks around.

Does this mean everything is perfect? That I’m ecstatic about all of the work that I’m producing? Nope. Not even close. Part of living a creative life is never being satisfied. There really isn’t even anything all that great about the work I’ve done post slump. It isn’t the results as much as the process, the execution rather than the end result. I feel that I’m seeing clearer than I was before. That gives me the ability to concentrate on making great photos.

Here’s a few frame from the last couple of weeks. Elections, baseball, Messy Morning, a concert, Zombie Prom, a car crash and Cape Girardeau’s own take on the Color Run: Color Me Cape. Thanks for looking!

The Leopold Wildcats celebrate a point in the first set of their 25-20, 25-18 loss to Winona in the Class 1 championship game of the Missouri High School Activities Association State Volleyball Championship Saturday, November 9, at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau.

We’re getting towards the end of the year which means two things for photojournalists; contest season is in full swing and it’s time for the year-end photo galleries. So it’s off to the archives to go through the thousands of photos taken over the past 12 months to find the ones you love and the ones you wish didn’t have your name attached to them. I’m not going to say that these are the best photos I’ve taken this year, I’m sure I’ll change my mind about that, but they are some of my favorites either because of the frame itself or from the experience of taking it. So here are thirty of my favorite frames from 2013 in no particular order. I also hope that by posting this  now I will ensure I’ll spend the next eleven days making some bad ass rectangles. Thanks for looking and may your year end editing involve more “nice,” and less “aww s**t.”

I got the call to cover the Missouri volleyball championships again this year. I didn’t have nearly as many teams to cover this year compared to last time so it wasn’t as hectic but the flip side is that I didn’t shoot as many matches. Anyhow here are some of my favorites. Thanks for looking.
