Grant Park

I spent a few days in Chicago last week for the GreenBuild Conference.
Man what a great time, learning about what we can do to help build a better planet!

While I was there, I was able to get out of the convention center and get some architectural photos.
Here is a slideshow of a few photos I got one evening in Grant Park!

Boy would I love to do an e-shoot in this park someday :)

Roller Derby :: Season Closer

As many of you are probably already aware, in addition to lifestyle photography, I volunteer to shoot for the local roller derby league.  The girls at Roc City Roller Derby work hard and deserve good photos of their bouts, so I try to make it to as many as I can to help support Pixel8 and his photog crew. 
Heather plays for the Rottenchesters, so that makes it an easier commitment :)

Around those parts, I go by the name "Big Flash" haha
My derby photos regularly get added over at mitchsgallery.com in a roller-derby folder:

so this past weekend was the season closer, "bouting for boobies" and the proceeds went to the local Breast Cancer Coalition.

Here are a couple shots from the night: 

I think the new season will start in just a couple short months!  Can't wait!  Get your tickets as soon as you can because they sell out. Rochester Roller Derby is pretty popular :)
