2014 Fear Book

The gang at Haunted Haven have always been fun to work with. I'm sure this comes as no big surprise.  Clowns and blood and other scary things, it's hard not to have a good time. I think why I'm especially drawn toward the group is that momentary break from the realities of the job. With Halloween approaching, photographing the characters in costumes with made up back stories are a far cry from the other hot topic of the time, politicians (pun intended). But seriously, the fantasy of the haunted house and the creative outlet it offers a photojournalist as myself is a welcome respite to the rigors of the politics, travel and deadlines. -See the entire photo shoot this Saturday in Sauk Valley Weekend.

I've worked on several stories with the Midwest Derby Divas Roller Derby team and always reserve a great level of respect for the team. Especially the tireless efforts of its owner, Andrea "Anita Painkiller" Wakeman.
