On Inauguration Day, a picture of change

By Matt Cashore '94

Eight years ago I stood in a corner of the LaFortune main lounge and photographed people watching the swearing-in of President Barack Obama. I recently retrieved that photo from my archive with the thought of re-visiting the same spot as President Donald Trump took the oath of office.

Photographing the Elite Eight

By Matt Cashore '94

In over 20 years of photographing Notre Dame sports both as a student and a professional, I’ve seen some historic moments through my viewfinder. Highlights include the 1993 “Game of the Century” against Florida State, the “Bush Push,” National Championship games in both football and women’s basketball, the five-overtime Louisville men’s basketball game, and most recently Notre Dame’s men’s hoops’ first Elite Eight appearance since 1979.

Go Irish, Fly Navy

He wasn’t supposed to look. When U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander John Hiltz ’02 roared over Notre Dame Stadium in his F/A-18 Hornet before the November 2, 2013, Notre Dame-Navy game, he may have had the most enviable view of campus on a football Saturday.

Joyce Jumble

It seemed like the final notes of the Alma Mater had barely stopped echoing after Commencement in the south dome of the Joyce Center before the jackhammers took over. This summer construction crews will transform the Joyce Center Arena into the Purcell Pavilion. In addition to the new name, the arena will get a new main entrance, new seating — no more bleachers — and a general “facelift” for the facility, now in its fifth decade.…

Blue Skies & Blackboards

Late in every spring semester there is one day when the warming weather becomes irresistible and dozens of classes seem to spontaneously and simultaneously decide to go outside. But what do you do when you need to write equations and calculations on the board? Professor Bill Goodwine and his “Differential Equations, Vibrations & Controls 2” engineering class decided to bring the board with them as they enjoyed the warm weather in the pergola outside Fitzpatrick Hall of Engineering.…

Spring Fever, Feb. 10, 2009

By Matt Cashore '94

Spring Fever
After a month of lake-effect snow and single-digit temperatures, the weather abruptly changed gears, and Notre Dame enjoyed temperatures well into the 50s. The campus virtually exploded in a frenzy of spring fever. Even with melting snow piles still lining the sidewalks, the air above South Quad was filled with Frisbees, footballs and baseballs as the muddy but happy students enjoyed a brief break from the Northern Indiana winter.…

Dome In January

By Matt Cashore '94

Dome in January
This photo of the Main Building was shot with a special-effects lens called a Lensbaby. Basically you take your really expensive highly engineered digital camera and snap a cheap piece of plastic where the really expensive lens should go. You have some control over the image but the fun is not knowing exactly what the effect will be. I think this is sort of how it feels to be on campus in early January. You have one eye sort of halfway open and your vision is blurred from the tears caused by the sting of the cold wind.…
