XA2 Extras : Haiti

My mom was nice enough to let me steal her old Olympus XA2 and bring it to Haiti. I've been taking it with me everywhere I go lately; there should be many more posts to go featuring its pictures.

Most of my transportation was in the back of the pickup truck, which proved to be good film opportunities.

The Magnolias

These guys gave me and Conrad(my buddy/roommate/reporter) a one on one show in their practice space a week ago. It was awesome to hear how cohesive they were after playing together since the 80's. You can read the article on them here.

Strange Sunday

It is now a Monday.

Submerged

Yesterday was the loss of the very talented Mike Laresen. I had the fortune of working with him, taking the promotional pictures for Eyedea and Abilities' last album. He had spontaneity, combined with energetic genius, that has yet to be rivaled by anyone I've worked with.

I wish the best to the friends and family who are now mourning his death.

Eyedea and Abilities

Working with him was one of the first achievements I had as a photographer in the Minneapolis area.

:::::::::::::::::::

This leads into the other strange part of Sunday: Tim Brewster gets fired. I have been shooting for his recruitment department during the past year. Though the season was worse than anyone expected, I never expected it to end like this. Brewster is obviously not a tragedy like the Mikey, but they both left an eerie feeling as I saw accomplishments in shadows.

What A Week

Been a busy week with school and work. Finishing up my CPOY submission and at the same time I have to send my camera in for repairs. Figured I would get a few things up from the past week.
Enjoy.

Estate

Had a fun time hanging out with the guys of Estate for a story in the Minnesota Daily. Unfortunately the weeks following the shoot I've had to deal with hard drive crashes, school, and two jobs. 
Enjoy.

MPLS Records Stores for RollingStone.COM

I was fortunate to shoot for RollingStone.COM's article on record stores across the country. I covered The Electric Fetus, Cheapo, and Hymie's. You can see the whole slide show of stores across the country here.

Loss to South Dakota

I'm fortunate enough to again cover games for the Gophers. This was their first game of the season and they suffered a loss 38-41 to South Dakota. Everyone was a bit off that day including myself. I tried shooting half Canon glass and a 7D along with my D700. It was awkward, and I decided I don't like the controls and plastic feel of the Canon body. Live and Learn.

New Haiti Project

After a week being home from Haiti I put up a new project section on my website.
In it you can see a photo essay of my trip.

Most of the transportation throughout this trip was in a back of a pickup truck. My friend and travel companion Alex did a video of the street life from our daily drive to Leogane. You can see me near the end screaming as we fly through the crowded streets.
