  • It's been a brutally cold winter. And more than ever this season, we've been asked to document citizens making their way through the cold. As I sat in my warm car in the parking lot of The Centre in downtown Elgin, I hoped somebody would cross from the parking garage into the street all bundled up with every stitch of clothing they owned. This guy made his way across the pedestrian bridge, checking his mobile device in complete comfort of the warm, inside air. I remember thinking, "Well, this image doesn't say 'cold weather', but at least he's smart." This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edtion.

  • Photojournalist photograph just about everything in life - from fun events to tragic spot news situations. We really enjoy photographing events that reflect the sprit of a community. Two Saturdays ago I had the privilege of writing the story and photographing six-year-old Connor Johnson, a 2001 cancer survivor of Libertyville, right, shaving the head of his friend Luke Steres, 4, of Gurnee, as Connor's dad, Michael, watches from the side during a St. Baldrick's Foundation event at Austin's Saloon and Eatery on Saturday in Libertyville. The event raised $60,000 for childhood cancer research as 250 people packed the Fuel Room to cheer them on. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edtion.
