This site is dedicated to showing off the work of the Ball State Daily News photographers, giving us a chance to display our work that doesn’t get in the paper, but is still worth viewing.
Bobby Ellis – Photo Editor
My name is Bobby Ellis and I’m a junior photojournalism major/political science minor at Ball State University. I hail from a tiny town called Shoals, Indiana, and I’ve been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. It wasn’t until my junior year of high school that I started taking it seriously. I cut my teeth on wild life photography, since there was nothing else in Shoals, but since starting my journalist career I’ve really fallen in love with shooting breaking news and documentary photography. I just finished an internship with the U.S. Army and I’m hoping at breaking into the world of combat photography after I graduate.
Corey Ohlenkamp – Assistant Photo Editor
My name is Corey Ohlenkamp and I’m a Junior News/Photojournalism major at Ball State University. I come from a small city called Crown Point, Indiana, and took an interest in photography during my high school career. I worked on an archive project to document the years of my marching band but I only began to consider it a career after getting a serious introduction to photojournalism at Ball State. Theatre and entertainment are usually where I get my best work, but I really enjoy going out to large events be it a protests and demonstrations, or breaking news. My goal is to train to work on international reporting. It would be nice to work in areas of the world most people never get to see.
