A Very Visual First Year in Baltimore

In the last year I've shot so many new events and stories in new places, but I haven't been sharing it all with the internet. In my first year working as the staff photographer at the Catholic Review, my coworkers and I hauled in a bunch of contest awards from the Catholic Press Association and the MDDC Press Association, including the MDDC's award for newspaper of the year for non-dailies with circulations more than 20,000. Here's a random sample of photos from the last year shot around Baltimore and beyond. It includes the Preakness, graduation features, sports and other sundry pretties that caught my eye. Also, you can now view the photos larger. Just click the little, arrow-square-thingy in the bottom-right to expand the slideshow.

Explore Maryland Magazine

We switched gears this summer at the paper and delved into the world of travel magazines. Explore Maryland hits all the highlights "from the Mountains to the Shore" in the Free State. I got to travel all over the state shooting for all of the stories, including a feature on minor league baseball. Here are some of my favorite shots that didn't make it into the final production (save a couple). If you're in Maryland, keep an eye out maybe, you'll see it around.

Back to School

It's almost time for the kids to head back to school again. Last year for the paper's back to school issue we ran a story about a young lady with Down syndrome who was preparing to make the transition from middle school to high school.
