Best of 2011-2012

Here is a selection of my favorite photos that I've shot for work during the past 12 months. Enjoy. Let me know what you think.

Chris Cooper tries to avoid the blue light during an eye exam. Chris was the subject of a new surgical technique to make removing congenital cataracts easier on both patient and doctor.

Chris Cooper is more intrigued by the red light than the blue light.

Dr. Chris Buresh holds Bedica, a Haitian girl who came to Iowa for life-saving surgery. Bedica lived with the Bureshes for several months while she recovered from surgery. Tragically, shortly after returning to her family in Haiti, Bedica died of cholera.

Bruce Macavoy watches a blaze erupt in a mock dorm room. The demonstration showed how quickly a dorm room can be engulfed in flame. The room at right was also ignited, but it was quickly extinguished by a built-in sprinkler system.

Josie Whelan shows off her sprinting skills at the Kids Day at Kinnick last August.

Kids of all ages had a beautiful day to enjoy Kids Day at Kinnick in August.

The University of Iowa has long been a leader in the non-surgical treatment of clubfoot. Despite the look on this baby's face, the procedure is more uncomfortable than it is painful.

For the Big Love play, lights had to be installed on four walls and directly above the stage. Here, Caitlin Dorset checks the lighting map to make sure everything is in its proper place.

Jess Fialko, the lighting designer for Big Love, says, "Good lighting is like good acting; it makes the story come alive."

Hawkeye swimmers hosted the men's and women's Big 10 swimming championships this spring.

In addition to these singles, my three favorite multi-photo packages are a story on a medical student's experience on Match Day, Dance Gala, and a package I did on the day Jackson Pollock's Mural moved from the Quad Cities to Des Moines. Those images can be found here:

These are terrific, Tim. I really enjoyed them. They show a broad sense of skill in using different techniques and lenses... I can see that your eye has been developed over time. Striking compositions and quality of images. Thanks for sharing.

I also have a blogspot, and have shared some of my photos occasionally, but mostly what I do is write about things in my life or on my mind. I'm at tripolarity.blogspot.com if you want to check it out sometime.
