eddie adams ii – the story

My last post consisted of pictures from the Eddie Adams Workshop that weren’t from the story I worked on while I was there. We had the opportunity to work on stories found by our incredible team producer Lisa Krantz, and I was given two days to shoot at the Jeffersonville Adult Home. The home houses both mentally ill patients and the elderly, and it was a welcoming place. The residents were incredibly kind and had some great stories to share with me. The access I had was wonderful, and my only regret is that I don’t live in New York, because I would love to continue this story.

thank you, eddie

I just returned from Barnstorm. I can very safely say it was one of the most incredible weekend to this point in my life. I made friends that I’ll be working with for the rest of my life, met editors who all care so much about every student’s progression, heard some inspirational speakers, learned more about photojournalism and editing, took part in a touching memorial and had a blast while doing all of it on an hour or two of sleep a night.

I’d like to give a huge thanks to everyone who was a part of making this weekend what it was, especially Alyssa Adams and my Pink Team head honchos Michael, Tim, Lisa and Bob.

Here’s a little behind the scenes on the weekend.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m currently in New York City. I’ll be heading upstate to Jeffersonville, New York, tomorrow for the Eddie Adams Workshop. It’s going to be an incredible experience, and I wanted to get out and spend my day exploring and shooting before the workshop started. I’ll be on a team with 9 other workshop attendees, and the team will be led by Michael Williamson, Tim Rasmussen and Lisa Krantz, three professionals who I have an incredible amount of respect for and have admired since I got into photojournalism.

The first set of images here is from the Occupy Wall Street protests. Following that are some ‘from-the-hip’ street-style photos from my walk to High Line Park, which is where the third set of images comes from.

And here are my ‘from-the-hip-style’ street photos on my walk to High Line Park…

High Line Park is gorgeous. It’s a different way to view the city, no stoplights, greenery everywhere and a really relaxed, happy atmosphere. My legs are dead from all the walking I did today, but I enjoyed it. Here are some images from the park.

And lastly is a quick portrait I shot of an Argentinian woman I had the pleasure of meeting today. If you follow up and check this blog, feel free to grab this image for yourself, it was nice meeting you and I hope you enjoy!

Spent the weekend in Madison, Wisc., covering the Nebraska’s first Big Ten football game at Camp Randall Stadium. Met some cool people before, during and after the game. Madison is a whole different world than Lincoln..
