These 20 images are from the online news site I started in January covering local news. The site is called The Bloomingtonian. In the past few years, as local newspapers have cut staff, and including photographers, local coverage has been diminished. The iPhone is not a replacement for experienced photojournalists. There is no army of citizen journalists covering most of what I cover, as a matter of fact, I’m often the only photographer on the scene. So, I set out to create an experimental visual journalism news outlet covering local news to fill the void left in the community I call home.  I cover breaking news, events, and topics of importance to the community, and apply my two decades of institutional knowledge to the task of doing so. I strive to make the highest quality images of journalistic value to my fellow citizens. These are some of the images I’ve made in the community since January 2019. I’m experimenting with various ways to monetize the site, and trying to make it sustainable.

I’ve been making photos since the late 1980s, and spent more than 20 years working for a small paper in Bloomington, Indiana, until it was bought by GateHouse this year. I am a 1997 graduate of San Jose State’s photojournalism sequence. I was lucky to have a staff job for as long as I did, but now I’m a freelancer. I work in both moving and still images.
