Late Awarness

This was a feature I generated for some of our Breast Cancer Awareness coverage.


Tom Murphy, 17, leads the Springport high school and elementary school on a march as part of several events held for Breast Cancer Awareness Week Friday afternoon near their schools in Springport. Murphy's mother, Katrina, is currently undergoing treatment for stage 4 breast cancer. Though Springport hosts fundraising events for Breast Cancer Awareness Week every year, this year they decided to funnel the proceeds from a number of events over the week to the Murphy family. Tom, who helped organize the walk, said he was pleased with how everything came together. "To see it actually fall into place," he said, 'It's unreal."

Features from Kentucky

One of these is a scene setter from a tobacco farm. The other was from a zombie walk we shot. The frame count limit killed me that week, but since then I've been more conscientious about my composition, light and moments.

Thanks for looking.

Mountain Workshop

It's been a while since I last posted. Some rather heavy things have happened since October, but today I'm going focus on some of the recent work I've done I'm happy with, rather than on any less enjoyable topics.

So, this is a link to my work at this year's Mountain Workshop. For one week about 60 still and film student descended on Somerset, KY, to document life in the small-ish town. I was privileged enough to spend my week with Dr. Bruce Burkett, one of the last large-animal veterinarians in Pulaski County.

It was really great to take a week and focus on growing, on getting back to excellent storytelling for its own sake, rather than having to worry about the daily grind.

Though I'll most likely be posting a few outtakes from the week, what ended up running on the workshop's site, including the article I wrote about Dr. Burkett, can be found here:

Thank you for looking.
