If you have been to a first year design studio review you know the tension that fills the critique area. It is probably the first time a design student gets up and present their work in front of their peers and a jury. More than likely with very little to no sleep, it can be a nerve-racking experience. This studio held their own, and collectively did very well. They are a great group and very smart individuals.

This was the first time I ever been to a review on a full night of sleep.
It was nice.

Staab Family

Louisville, Kentucky

One of the things I enjoy as a photographer is that I get to meet new people and families. On a warm fall day I met the Staab family at Locust Grove in Louisville. Such a great family and an adorable little girl, very observant and you can tell that she was always thinking.

It was a pleasure to spend some time with this family.

I was asked by my friend Sarah Heller to visit the Studio that she teaches in the College of Design at the University of Kentucky. Since I graduated from that program (before it was renamed) I was honored to come back and talk to the students.

It was inspiring and truly a pleasure to have creative dialogues with the Architecture and Interior Design students.

The project they are currently working on is taking a mundane packaging box and manipulate it to communicate expansion and/or contraction. In order to enhance their statement they can use one light source.

They are doing some fantastic work, and I am very excited to follow these creative minds throughout the semester.

Victoria - This reminds me so much of my architecture studio when I was at uni in Sheffield. I love the darker, night time shots… so evocative of the passionate dedication (and martyrdom?) of architects! : )

Stephanie Lyell - I love this shoot…you captured the spirit of the work so well. It’s nice for me from my photojournalist background to see some non-wedding work every once and a while, kind of inspires me to step out of the wedding bubble sometimes :) hope all is well!
