The portraits below were taken to accompany either Feature, News or a Sports story for our online publication. I try to capture the subject's personality with my portraits as well as complimenting the story's topic.

The photos below are from a recent story I took photos for about a student who spends his free time blacksmithing. 

Senior Ben Atmore cuts the metal for his blacksmithing project under the metal cutting machine.

Up close to the fire: Atmore looks closely at the details of his piece before welding.

Atmore gently spins the metal under the fire for even distribution.
