I was born in western New York and raised in a caring Lutheran home by my parents Reverend Larry and Suanne Hendricks. Valparaiso University, located in Northwest Indiana, was an immediate choice for my secondary education as both my parents attended the highly ranked midwestern school. I have lived here the past 12 years ever since graduating with a Bachelor of Science in the Fine Arts.
Immediately, I went to work for the Times of Northwest Indiana newspaper where I still work and create imagery for our readership. During my 12 year career at the Times I have photographed orphans in Haiti, President Obama, Hurricane Katrina, Superbowl XLVI, various high school state championships, countless emergencies, dignitaries, the worst of life, the best of life, and one heroine parrot.
I love even the most difficult assignments as I thrive on facing challenges and finding solutions. Imagining for me is not only a job but a lifetime endeavor. In my mind, the best photograph I make will always be the one I make tomorrow.
