Archive for the month "March, 2012"

From last week, after the shoot for LeveLup, went across to Voltage Coffee & Art to decompress a bit and treat myself to a well-deserved coffee. It’s right off Kendall Sq. in Cambridge, and is really nice. Funny coincidence, they were setting up for a one-night photojournalism exhibit, which I would have really loved to attend (google NURU Project) if it wasn’t for my mountain of work to be done.

Housing day is a really great tradition at Harvard that makes me want to redo my Bachelor’s degree! Basically, the freshmen live in dorms for their first year, and then get assigned to a certain “House” for the next three years. Housing day is when they find out where they are getting placed. The current residents of the Houses get dressed up, yell at the different houses and generally make a lot of noise at a time much too early to be necessary – then they run from dorm to dorm handing out letters to the students, telling them where they’ll be living for the next 3 years. Kind of crazy but it was cool to watch and was great for video. Certainly shows a different side of Harvard…

Horrendously crazy day today, I must be a lunatic to put myself through this. Woke up early to go shoot b-roll of voters etc for Super Tuesday aka primary elections for many states including Mass., went to class at 9, went back out to shoot some more at class’s end, then off to shoot portraits of a beer buyer at South End Formaggio, and finally to the Copley Westin for the Romney Headquarters Watch Party. All the while continuously filing photos away for the BU News Service’s Campaign 2012 live stream. I am EXHAUSTED and need to be fed!
