Bellarmine University’s 63nd annual Commencement Exercises

I was up early last Saturday to cover Bellarmine’s outdoor graduation.
It was a cold, blustery morning and I was under-dressed for the elements with a light jacket. Had my fingerless gloves, but should’ve at least worn the neck gaiter. I was envious of those who’d thought to bring a stadium blanket to huddle under with others wearing stylish but unseasonable clothes.
Congratualtions to all those shivering grads and the family and friends that made the effort.

Here’s the story on The Courier-Journal website, “Bellarmine graduates 603 at outdoor ceremony.”

It was my pleasure to be the event photographer Saturday, April 26, 2016 for Universal Woods’ Milestone Achievement Event at The Gramercy in a historic building at 620 S. Third St. in downtown Louisville. I set up lights for red carpet portraits on their step-and-repeat background and shot some award winners upstairs in the elegant event hall.
Many thanks to Erin Gardenhire Churchman, Trade Show & Events Manager at Universal Woods for the hire, and to Jennifer Haas Foy (a colleague from PREP Magazine days) for the referral! I appreciate the work.
