OPINION: Dear Louisville Media, Words Matter

In the photo above, you can see the evidence that Louisville Metro Government and Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) don’t want anyone to have access to Injustice Square, even though the official protest ended last night.

Why is Louisville media still helping the Louisville Metro Police Department to try to make the Breonna Taylor case go away? As a former member of said media, I can say from experience that they don’t think they are helping that. However, every newsroom in the city is still standing up for the police version of events.

In Remembrance of Kim Jarboe

On the morning of August 21, 2020, activist, bus driver and anti-gun violence advocate Kim Jarboe was killed in Louisville’s West End in the Shawnee neighborhood. While her vehicle was stolen, the Louisville Metro Police department are investigating as a homicide.

SKETCHBOOK: Behind You

We had such a good time shooting photos of Kendall and her family and she was looking out for me through the entire shoot. You can see that here. While working with her and trying to get her attention, Misty would stand behind me and make funny faces or do funny things and Kendall wanted to let me know.

SKETCHBOOK: London and Brayden

I think we may have accidentally shot Valley High School’s 2017 football poster with my son London and his friend and quarterback Brayden. I always have fun shooting senior photos, but this was particularly awesome for my own personal reasons.

Kind of a Pang

Last week I had a bit of a creative pang. The commercial photography outfit I used to work with wanted to know if I was available for a day this week. I have to admit I considered it.

 About 5 seconds of consideration. Then I remembered why I can’t work for them anymore. Continue reading “Kind of a Pang”
