Although I travel to shoot and shoot when I travel, a lot of my photography is local. I am an unofficial photographer at the law school where I teach, shooting at receptions and conferences, and sharing the photos on facebook and the law school website.
Here is a sample of events from the last year: 2013 graduation, an alumni event in Chicago, and two receptions honoring colleagues.
For these I used a variety of bodies, but always my go-to event lens: the Nikon 70-200 (2.8), great for range and varying light.
If you live in Iowa City, you might see someone you recognize!
