My mom hates having her photo taken, but she’s slowly grown more and more ok with it-as long as I don’t go overboard.

Houghton, Michigan: The birthplace of professional hockey for The New York Times

Houghton, Michigan quickly became a place that I put on my “need to visit again” list. The town has so much charm, history, and quirky character that I fell in love with it instantly.

I spent about two days in town working on this with sports writer Jeff Klein. Read the article and view the full 13-image gallery here.

I also used this experience as a way to help educate other photographers who have questions about how to navigate a new community in order to create a photo essay. Read my tutorial here, and check out other useful posts at Photo Tuts while you’re at it!
