Utah Statesman (Utah Photography)

This is my brother Ben who is a brilliant writer and currently the Editor in Chief of USU's paper, the Utah Statesman. Ben was nice enough to let me come shoot him in action as he and his cohorts got the Friday issue put together...they stay up late!

I wanted an old-time cluttery feel to the images so I went for black and white. Black and white just feels classic newsroomy to me, yes I realize that newsroomy isn't a word. I tried adding film grain in post but it just looked stupid to me so I'm a little cross that I didn't boost my ISO more but at the same time I hate digital noise which is just one of the reasons I shoot with a tripod. I need to start looking for a good grain plug-in.

This above is Matt, organizer of all things crowd related at the Spectrum. If you haven't ever seen a game there you, my friend, are missing out!

One of my favorites. :)

There are more pics on facebook, I'll try to post the link tomorrow.


Holy smokes that's a long link!

...and scene.

Thanks Ben and Co. for letting me hang around, it was a blast.

I love a good story.


  1. The first photo is my favorite. Good thing he has such nice feet. He should totally blow that up and frame it. :)

  2. Thanks Leah! Thank you for all of your comments, so sweet, best sister ever!! :)
