Duke Campus

Duke Chapel

I had a little more time to take the Leica on a field trip, this time to the campus of Duke University. Whereas nearby UNC-Chapel Hill has more of an Old Southern style architecture, Duke has a more gothic style that makes for great photography. Here are some photos from my recent trip to Duke University. (Duke University Campus Photo Gallery)

Franklin Street at Night

Franklin Street, Chapel Hill, NC.

Franklin Street, Chapel Hill, NC.

I recently invested in a rangefinder camera and wanted to give it a whirl doing what they are famous for: Street photography. Last Friday I went out to Chapel Hill’s famous Franklin Street. It’s hosted huge Halloween gatherings and bonfires after the basketball team wins a national championship. But on any given Friday it is tranquil yet also full of life. Here are some of my photos of storied Franklin Street.

Russell Wilson portrait

NC State called me about doing a quick shoot of their quarterback, Russell Wilson, together with the school’s mascot, “Tuffy”. Took a lot of frames, many which were the dog walking out of the frame, etc., but finally we nailed a good photo that you see below. Used an Alien Bee 1600 monolight with a battery week to separate subject from background.

UNC Campus at Night

Morehead Planetarium at night

I have this thing for night photography and black + white photos.  I have always enjoyed the moody look to them.  This weekend I joined to of my photographer friends Will and Kevin and went out on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill at 10pm to get some shots. Here are some of my favorites.

My Favorite Photos from the Kellie Harper Story

It was obvious at the outset of starting this project that the bond between Coach Harper and the players was very strong. They love her; it’s obvious every time I am around the team. I have a wider shot of this scene, but I like this one most. It concentrates on the interaction between the team; faces aren’t important here — the bond is.

As I mentioned earlier on this site, I was commissioned by the NC State alumni associated to do the photography for a story they are doing on Kellie Harper, NCSU’s new women’s basketball coach. They asked me to pick my favorite photos from the story. Easier said than done though with some 1,000 pics to cull through.  But I was able to pick out my favorite eight from the season and here they are. Read the rest of this entry »
