My friend Rachel happened to be around when I was testing out a new picture profile on my camera. It is designed to mimic black and white film and I think it does a pretty good job. It may not be the best profile but I like how it looks.
Shannon Moloney is a friend and fellow student here at Ithaca College. We spent some time together and while there was still some daylight shining in through the window I asked to get one quick shot of her. Here it is.

Here at Ithaca College there is a large group of professors who stand by their beliefs and ideals. These professors are activists and constantly go out and protest and do work in order to make these ideas known and to fight injustice. As a part of a collegiate institution they share their beliefs with their students and try to be the inspiration for them to get out and fight for what they belief in.
This project was made in collaboration with Kelsey O’Connor, editor in chief of The Ithacan.
The 54th annual Cortaca Jug football game was held on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012. The Ithaca College Bombers lost to the SUNY-Cortland Red Dragons 16-10. This is my account from the sidelines. And as I am from Ithaca College, it was the Bomber side of things.

This is part of a new policy implemented by Ithaca College president Tom Rochon. All student media must contact Maley to set up interviews with upper level faculty and administrators. The campus community has responded very strongly to this new policy, including a letter urging repeal from about 70 faculty members as of Friday, Oct. 5, 2012.
Selections of my photojournalism will also appear from time to time. This is how I am introducing this new section on this site. Hope you enjoy! Here is the first image, a personal favorite.

I would like to introduce a new type of portrait posting for the website. It will be a “street portrait.” Basically it will be simple photographs just arranged on the spot and that happen to catch my eye. Here is the first one.
Recently I shot photos of Megan Musnicki, a Olympic gold medalist who graduated from Ithaca College, for The Ithacan. Along with Matt Kelly, sports editor for the paper, we were able to set up some great shots. But, interestingly enough this practice shot of Matt deserves some attention.
