This has been the most amazing year of my life photographically. I like to call 2015 my year of self-discovery. I traveled to California, to Washington DC, and all over Washington state alone. For some people that’s not a big deal but for me it was a huge stepping stone to being a more confident person and photographer. I saw parts of this country that everybody who calls themselves an American should see. I was mesmerized by the utter vastness that is the Yosemite valley and then laid my eyes on the giant that is Half Dome. I drove down the California coast to Big Sur to some of the most beautiful beaches on this side of the country. Washington DC is a phenomenal place to visit and I highly recommend it. The history and beautiful architecture that surrounded me was enough to make me cry at certain times. To be in the place to helped create the country I call home, and to see in person all the places I have seen in movies and TV shows all my life was surreal.
I met a lot of intriguing, creative, super crazy, awesome photographers. Some who I am blessed to called friends and who push me to be a better photographer and some who helped me learn more about business and the true meaning of community of competition. I had the great honor of working with a few of them even. I should add that some of these photos may not be the most beautiful of photos but their meaning and symbolism to me and what they mean to my heart make them worth sharing. So as hard as it was to narrow these down, here is my “best of” photos of 2015. I look at them and am in awe of how great this year has been to me. An ENORMOUS THANK YOU to all my wonderful clients who made so many of these photos possible. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you, and please enjoy.
