Dave Bangert pulled me from the idled photographers’ bull-pen and asked me to go out to the Tippecanoe County 4-H Fair, for his community journalism project; Based in Lafayette. Here is what I found.
It’s time to wake up again. I’ve been napping, overeating, and then slimming down and learning new skills for the past 2 years: Adobe Premier, color grading, captioning, and most importantly capturing great audio. I’ll post more about that soon, in the meantime enjoy this photograph of the setting sun of the Purdue University Belltower.
I made this montage from various photographs made for Purdue University, walk-in clients, and other entities. I work quickly before the decisive moment has passed.

A long term client pinged my e-mail today while I was in the coffee shop. The ask was for a portrait of Ruth Lilly made in 1996, they sheepishly asked if I could locate it today! I responded that I knew exactly where the negatives and extra prints were. Digital copy of the portrait made and sent to the client within an hour. Another fire is out.
More on this portrait; I arrived at Lilly’s home on a Saturday morning to find she wasn’t sure about having the portrait made. I got to talk to her a few minutes and she decided to let me make a few photographs beside the roses. I made only 7 or so images when she said; “I’m sure you have enough.” She approved the image posted here.
She was a lady of another time, I’m glad to have met her and a few Hoosier other luminaries for this ongoing project.
Missing the days when I looked for “free art” or feature photos as a newspaper photographer, I saw this youngster getting a haircut along with his father. I walked passed and thought it was a nice slice of life, returned with my camera and captured it. I gave the Sony A7ii file some post processing to make it look like some pushed TriX would have looked when I was working for a newspaper in 1986.
Honored again to make the rounds at Purdue University making portraits of cancer researchers.
Earlier this year I was honored to receive a call to make photographs for local businessman Mike Gibson, co-owner of Mulhaupt’s Inc., for his appointment to the Door and Security+Safety Professionals Board of Governors. The portraits were used in the trade publication, and by Mike to celebrate his long and successful career as one of Lafayette’s business leaders.
