Hi all! I know it’s been a while since last posting and many things have changed during that time. My internship in Grand Rapids, Mich., ended and I’m now back home in Seattle, Wash.

The learning process is slowed down but the girls are always passing expectations, Instructor Amanda Sekelsky said. I got to spend some time during a dress rehearsal with two of the program’s older girls, who are getting … [Read more…]
I went with fellow intern Matt Gade to Detroit to photograph two local Grand Rapids teams in the high school state football championships. It was really cool to be in Ford Field (despite the fact that was where my beloved Seahawks lost their Super Bowl rings to some refs…yes, I’m still bitter.) Football is my … [Read more…]
