Best of High School Sports

With the high school sports season quickly approaching in August here are some of my favorite sports photos from my first few months at the Herald & Review.

The Virginian visits central Illinois

James Drury, of the TV western The Virginian,¬†made a stop in Effingham and Decatur last Friday. I photographed him before and after an appearance with WAND, a local TV station. After taking more portraits in three months than I did in my entire college career I’m starting to get used to the fast paced nature that most of my news portraits fall into.

The location wasn’t ideal, so I tried to go for something more natural instead of a posed shot and this was the result. It was taken during the interview process with Herald & Review reporter Bob Fallstrom.
