From the Archives: Alternative Energy

Several years ago, 2007 to be exact, I was the in-house photographer for Hirons & Co, an advertising firm out of Indianapolis. I shot a wide variety of things while I was there, but one of my favorite projects was for Wabash Valley Power Association. I traveled around the midwest capturing images of many of the WVPA’s power projects, many of which were alternative energies. Many of my images from 2007 are still on their website.

The Fair Oaks Dairy in Northern Indiana is energy self sustaining, collecting methane from the cows’ manure and burning it. This small cow, one of the lucky ones that got to be outside, was very interested in my camera. This image got a lot of play with the WVPA

These massive turbines in Illinois made the landscape so much more interesting. I wish there were more of these wind farms around Indiana.

I’m going back through my old files trying catagorize and organize them. Tedious work. I need an intern…that would work for free.

Photograph featured in Summer 2013 Men’s Journal Issue!

I got a text from my friend Broderick yesterday morning. “Men’s Journal? nice work!”

I was very confused. I’ve never submitted anything to Men’s Journal. Then I took a look at my Tandem Stock site. There were a couple of pending payments. I wrote to Tandem and they said, indeed Men’s Journal had purchased this image for use. I went to the store and picked up the magazine. There it was, Page 11! It’s a nice spread. I’m psyched to have my shot in such a high profile magazine, but it would have been nice to know that was happening.

 Thanks to Broderick for going shooting with me a couple of years ago.
