  • On a wet, rainy afternoon, the defending NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse national champion Jumbos started the second round of their title defense in this season’s tournament. For most the game, Tufts seemed to be in control, building a 6-goal lead at one point. But, Cortland State made things interesting, closing the lead to within [...]

  • ThumbnailWhen it comes to event photography, of which we get our fair share of here in Tufts Photo, I always try to get something different or unexpected — make a picture that doesn’t necessarily fit into the mold of people mingling. Some situations make it easier to accomplish than others. And sometimes, they just serve up the [...]

  • I recently had the opportunity to tag along with two students who are currently teaching an ExCollege class on mountaineering. These two guys, Nick Levin (A11) and Ryan Stolp (A11), are experienced mountaineers and outdoorsmen, and are spending their final semester at Tufts sharing that knowledge with anyone who wants to soak it in. The [...]

  • A colleague of mine who shoots for Sports Illustrated often repeats a line whenever he presents at speaking engagements: “Bad weather makes for great photographs.” So with that in mind, I headed on down to Bello Field yesterday in the pouring rain to shoot the women’s lacrosse team as they went on to pound Babson [...]

  • For all the hard work that Tufts School of Medicine students do, it all leads to today — Match Day, where they’ll find out where they’ll be spending their residencies as working doctors. It was an afternoon filled with a lot of emotion, elation, and occasionally tears. This particular Match Day was of particular significance, [...]

  • It was a good night for the Jumbos at Cousens Gymnasium last night as they cruised to a 69-47 non-conference win over Gordon. Forward Alex Orchowski was all over the place, as you’ll see from some of the photos, recording his fourth double-double of the season. Among other anecdotes, courtesy of Tufts Athletics, this win [...]

  • Earlier today, we heard rumors about various igloos that seem to have popped up around campus over the weekend. Not content to just rely on the twitpics floating around the Internets, I took a little walk up the hill to check things out for myself. That’s when I ran into engineering student Chris Barry and [...]

  • Back when I was considering Tufts as a potential school, the tour guides and admission folks were keen on selling us prospective students on P.T. Barnum’s involvement with the establishment of the University back in the mid-19th century. But, it wasn’t until last month, however, that I got to pick up a circus-related Tufts photo [...]

  • After Wednesday’s blizzard — or Snowpocalypse 2011 as some are calling it — and almost 2 feet of snow later, the Medford/Somerville campus was a literal winter wonderland. Too bad students are still a week away from returning to enjoy (?) it as the rest of us spend our days digging out from the 20-foot snowbanks [...]

  • With classes being out, I took advantage of what little downtime we’ll have before the spring semester starts and cruised over to Cousens to check out some women’s basketball action as the Jumbos took on the Regis Pride. Regis kept things close in the first half, but couldn’t hang on as Tufts rounded out the [...]

  • With the end of the year approaching, we here at Tufts University Photography are taking the time to pull aside our favorites of 2010. Over the course of the next few days, you’ll see a selection of images starting here, with myself, Associate Director of Photography Alonso Nichols and Photo Researcher Emily Zilm. Granted, I’ve [...]

  • Hello, Jumbo Nation! After a brief hiatus from the blogosphere, the Tufts University Photography Blog is back with a snazzy new redesign, along with a mess of really cool tools that will let you see and share the best of what we do. In the meantime, take a look at our portfolio. Stay tuned for [...]
