A rainy night in Beijing didn’t deter some members of the Nebraska trade mission from venturing down Qianmen Street on their way to dinner at Qianmen Quanjude Roast Duck Restaurant. Holding aloft an umbrella at center is Tony Raimondo, chairman of Behlen Manufacturing Co. of Columbus, Neb. He is flanked by Richard Casey, Behlen senior vice president and CFO, and Jenny Wu of the Beijing office of Allmand Brothers of Holdrege, Neb. MATT MILLER/THE WORLD-HERALD
I’ve been shooting Cornhuskers, cowboys and common folks at the Omaha World-Herald since September 2002. I was lucky enough to catch the end of the Tom Osborne era while in college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Any day I get to spend in Nebraska's Sandhills is a good day. If nice light and people (a rare sight in western Nebraska) are tossed into the mix, it’s even better. Shooting photos for the World-Herald offers several challenges: the repetition of sporting events, handling my own feelings at emotional events like shootings and funerals, and handling the wide range of weather we cover in the Great Plains. I’d be happy to share more, but you’ll have to buy me a drink, first.
