North Shore Ice Caves

 

It’s been a cold and snowy winter….so cold that the Great Lakes are 90% frozen over.  It’s possible to walk  to the Apostle Island caves outside of Bayfield, Wisconsin.  The other day I drove to the north shore of Lake Superior to take pictures of the frozen caves.  It was really cold!

Town Ball

I love baseball.  I could watch baseball all day, anytime.  That’s why a recent assignment taking video and stills at the MBA tournament was great fun.  MBA features town baseball teams from all over Minnesota.  The games are competitive, the players are very good, the seats and spectators are great.  In many cases the entire town shows up to cheer the team on.  This is part of an ongoing project, so stay tuned!  More of the work can be found on my website, davidellisphoto.com.

Flashes of Hope

Last week I did a pro bono project for Flashes of Hope.  Flashes of Hope is a national nonprofit organization whose goal is to photograph every child with cancer until every child is cured.  My team, Ben Clasen (digi tech) and Greg Naaktgeboren (assistant) spent the morning at Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis creating portraits.  Each child/family receives a series of prints from Flashes of Hope.  It was a fun, rewarding and emotional photo shoot–the kids and their family got to have a few minutes away from their worries.  Here are some of the portraits–

Hockey

While the hockey season isn’t over, I thought I would show some of the pictures I’ve taken at the various games and tournaments.  The kids are having a great time and they play with a lot of determination.  They have learned and improved their game thanks to great coaching.  I’m tired of winter, but I’m going to miss hockey when the season is over.  (We do have spring and summer hockey to look forward to!)
