Last Friday I had the opportunity to photograph a fundraiser for the St. Paul Blackhawks Soccer Club, a non-profit organization providing year-round soccer programs to youth in Minnesota. It was nothing short of inspiring to see all ages (5-19) play together and teach one another. It is so important for children to have great role models, and the indoor court at Orchard Center was filled with them. The fundraiser was held to help the U15 teams sponsor their trip to play in Sweden. I’m thrilled I had the chance to spend an evening with these fantastic kids! Below is my favorite image from the night – I love the spirit, joy and energy in the kids’ faces. I love the sense of motion and dynamic lines in the image. I love the back light and how it defines the players’ hair.

Accordo @ The Southern Theater | Minneapolis Portrait Photographer//November 12, 2010
A little while ago, I was asked to photograph the chamber ensemble Accordo for their upcoming show(s) at The Southern Theater. First, I must mention, as someone new to this city, it is so nice to discover places like The Southern Theater – A place so rich with culture and history.
Well, I had 30 minutes to photograph 5 people in a very dark space. Fortunately, details inside the theater were put to good use and made for an interesting background. So with the help of one mighty wireless flash, we were able to produce some excellent images.
Accordo was named “best new chamber ensemble 2009″ by The Star Tribune, and is returning to The Southern Theater for 2 shows on November 21 & 22 for what must surely be a great experience. I’ll be there! These guys were really easy going and a pleasure to photograph. Best of luck to you!
