About Michael

Michael Clubb is a photojournalist based in Lexington, Kentucky. Born in Louisville but raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, Michael returned to the Bluegrass state to attend the University of Kentucky. After joining the Kentucky Kernel, UK’s independent student newspaper, as a photographer, he soon realized that photography was more than a hobby for him; it would be his career. Now a junior, he is majoring in marketing and continues to work for the Kentucky Kernel— now as managing editor as well as photographer. Though he has shot news and features for the Kernel and other outlets, from a shooting at the Fayette Mall to how local businesses operated on Election Day 2020, Michael especially enjoys shooting sports. UK’s nationally recognized athletics program has allowed Michael many opportunities to photograph large-scale sporting events, such as UK football’s 2018 and 2019 bowl games, the 2019 NCAA men’s basketball Elite Eight, and historic 2020 basketball and football games played under COVID-19 protocols. Michael’s work has gained state, national and international recognition. Most notably, he was recently named Kentucky News Photographers Association Sports Photographer of the Year, competing against journalism professionals as well as against fellow students; in 2020, he earned an Award of Excellence from the College Photographer of the Year association for his Sports Portfolio. A full list of his accolades, including first-place finishes at the state and national level, can be found on his resume. Michael is available for freelance assignments. Contact him at x

  • Flying Home

    • Editorial Photographer / Photojournalist

    As a child, David Stephenson developed a nearly simultaneous love for photography and for birds. Today, a typical day includes both of his passions. He’s a professor and photography adviser at the University of Kentucky, and racing pigeons live in a loft in his backyard. Stephenson buys and sells, breeds and raises, trains and races pigeons. He also photographs them. “I was uniquely poised to take these two passions and put them together and have something that no one else in the racing pigeon hobby would have,” he said. Stephenson posts photos to his Instagram account, @pigeonphotographer. He said he likes that with photography, he can freeze the motion of pigeons’ wings. “When you can freeze it, and really see what they look like, I think they’re really quite beautiful,” he said.

  • Almost Normal

    • Editorial Photographer / Photojournalist

    The University of Kentucky declared Election Day an academic holiday, giving students and faculty the day off, though staff like dining hall employees continued to work. At eight locations around town, Lexington residents signed up to work at the polls, either for the county clerk's office as a poll worker or as one of many volunteers handing out waters and offering moral support to people in line. Voters showed up, some coming from their morning shift, and many who had already voted stayed home and watched the news. But workers at small-owned service businesses in Lexington said their day was almost normal, even amidst one of the most anticipated and tumultuous elections in recent history.

  • Joe B. Hall’s Kentucky Dream

    • Editorial Photographer / Photojournalist

    Kentucky has always been in Joe B. Hall’s “makeup.” Born in Cynthiana in 1928, Hall always had a dream to be involved with Kentucky basketball. His dream was realized in 1948, when he wore the UK jersey for half a season, before transferring to Sewanne for more playing time. “I had the opportunity to go onto the floor with Kentucky on my chest, come out of the portal in the old Alumni Gym, with the band playing ‘On On U of K,’” he said. “Kentucky was deep in my heart.” After his career as a player, Hall came back to UK first as an assistant coach and eventually as head coach. From leading the 1978 men’s basketball team to a national championship as head coach to stopping by his hometown’s local gym during his retired life and offering a few pointers to aspiring young players, Hall has ingrained himself into Kentucky history and basketball culture.
