UW-Green Bay Photographer/Videographer Dan Moore’s top photos of 2022
It’s hard to pick my favorite photos of the year. We shoot such a diverse range of subjects and styles, and I never know how to compare things like portraits with landscapes. So I don’t know if these are my ten best photos from the past year, but they are images that stood out to me in some way when I reviewed the work I’ve done. If you like these photos, follow me on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/uwgbphotodan/ and view my colleague, Sue Pischke’s, top photos of 2022.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from 2022:
Josiah Plays Pool
I shoot a fair number of portraits during the year. When I was with Josiah and asked where he liked to hang out on campus, he said the pool tables in the Phoenix Club, which provided a chance for something a little different than what I’d normally shoot.
Phuture Phoenix Student and Mentor
I was photographing the Phuture Phoenix visit in April, and as I moved among the groups of 5th grade students with UW-Green Bay student mentors, I noticed these two seemed particularly close. When they sat down for a moment during a tour of the Weidner Center it was the right moment for a photo.
STEM Family Day
It’s true that the STEM Center Family Day is a great event. It’s also true that photos of kids having fun are always a win. But let’s be honest, this is just an excuse to include a photo of MY kid in the favorite photos collection.
Painting the Phoenix
It’s a truth of the current age of photography that drone shots looking straight down are cool. I present you with a drone shot looking straight down at the painting of the phoenix during GB Welcome. It’s cool.
Arnold Broadcast Studio Unveiling
With the opening of new audio and video production space within the renovated TEAM Lab spaces, a gift from Sinclair Broadcast Group allowed the new broadcast studio to be named the Arnold Broadcast Studio. This was kept a surprise from Harvey Arnold, who in this image had just found out about the honor.
This image was from a papermaking demonstration put on in the fiber arts studio for writing students.
Zach Baesman speaks at the TEDx UW-Green Bay event at Theatre on the Bay in Marinette. I like this composition with the speaker and the lights in far opposite corners of the image.
A graduate student receives her hood at the December commencement ceremony. Her expression feels like she is soaking in the moment, even if I think she may have just been blinking.
