Micro Bruisers - Milwaukee Junior Roller Derby


5 years ago, I played my last Roller Derby bout. It was the first Brewcity Bruisers Midwest Brewhaha at Franklin Sports Complex. I was there when the Milwaukee's Roller Derby league first formed in the winter of 2005/2006. I pretty much credit BCB for keeping me in Milwaukee. It opened me up to all the great things I love about this city. I made lifelong friends and I am guessing I may have never met my husband if I hadn’t joined. I never played many sports as a kid, but it made me wish I had. It gave me the confidence in my physical appearance and abilities. It’s one of the best things I have ever done. In 2011, I got married and began the next chapter in my life starting a family, and I said goodbye to derby. Recently, I wanted to put my skills toward documenting an organization that I love and maybe help them to promote what they are doing. These girls, between the ages of 8-17 are amazing and fierce. I wish I had this when I was their age and grateful that my daughter has the opportunity to play derby if she chooses to. I watched these mighty girls practice, scrimmage, bout and then finally getting their end of season awards.

Little Sparks Of Light

When Hanson Dodge Creative showed me the pre-production reel, I brainstormed how I was going to add my own  little “spark." I wanted to do as much as I could in camera, so I ended up using a series of prisms, mirrors, magnifiers, and convex lenses to reflect light (or, sometimes, just to block out the video cameras/crew in my view). I first learned about some of these prism techniques from Washington DC photographer Sam Hurd. After borrowing some lenses/prisms from a fellow Milwaukee photographer to test out the techniques, I went on a little shopping spree at American Science and Surplus and got my own.

Children’s is not only a professional client of mine, I also trust them personally as my children’s healthcare providers. Luckily, we have not had to spend too much time there ourselves, but the staff and patients I have worked with on projects over the years have touched my heart. I am so happy to play a part in spreading their message.
