In Good Light
Images of the Circle City

About the Book
Indianapolis has been my home for nearly 25 years. When I first visited in the early 70's, Indianapolis was often described as a "corn field with lights," or referred to as "IndiaNoPlace." Today, Indianapolis has grown to nearly a million people and is listed as the 12th largest city in the country. It's become culturally diverse and has many of the amenities of larger cities without their headaches. For those willing to venture out with open eyes, the Circle City holds many architectural gems, both old and new, and it's filled with natural beauty. I hope you enjoy this collection of images and will celebrate Indianapolis with me. My goal has been to capture our fair city in a Good Light. I hope you find that I have. Enjoy!
Photography has been a part of my life since I was a kid. I shot all through high school, college, and worked as a photojournalist after earning a BA in Journalism from Indiana University in Bloomington. Since then I've created countless images using film and digital media. Then I discovered the iPhone in the summer of 2010! To say the iPhone has transformed how I see and think about photography would be an understatement. I no longer miss shots because I don't have my camera with me and I don't have to be tethered to the PC for hours of post-processing. Today, with all the apps available for the iPhone and the iPad, I can do that post-processing in the field, or the coffee shop, or virtually anywhere! And, social media has made sharing, teaching, and learning easier than it's ever been in the art's short history!
