Here’s the latest post from the Wonderful Machine blog featuring my pictures of Erin Henderson for the National Geographic Channel.
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.
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–
Over the last few weekends I went to some fat tire snow bike races. I was amazed at how many people are getting into this sport. The bikes are designed with super wide tires so that they can go through snow without getting stuck. It’s a great workout and it is one more activity to do here in our long winter months.

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!)
I recently completed an assignment for HCI Care Service and their agency, Delta Design. They wanted colorful pictures of leaves for their website. The timing was perfect. It was early August and the leaves would soon be changing. Because of the drought, the only question was if the leaves would shrivel up, turn brown and fall off the tree. For the most part, that is what happened. I looked at a lot of leaves before I found perfect, unblemished leaves. Here are some of the final images.
