As a photographer, 2017 was a big growth year for me - artistically and technically. While I’ve actually been at this photography thing for almost 20 years (thanks @sara_silks), I hadn’t really pursued it as intentionally as I have the last 20+ months or so. And, it’s been an incredible ride. These two grids from the past year showcase a few things - different camera types (iPhone 6s, Nikon D5000, Fujifilm X-T2), BnW and color, as well as many cities from my travels (Chicago, London, Milwaukee, Mexico City, Tokyo). More than anything, I believe I’m fundamentally at my best as a photographer when I’m capturing people in space, which is what’s featured in all my images here. Sometimes I deviate to just architecture, just people, or who the hell knows what else, but it’s the opportunity to create my own art - not just capturing someone else’s - based upon on a fleeting moment of people experiencing life where it happens…although a magical backdrop never hurt anyone.

Thanks for following along, and I can’t wait to not only share what I create but also see what you all create in 2018! .

Sometimes I find what I’m looking for, and sometimes it finds me. But I’d never find it at all if I wasn’t out there looking in the first place. I highly recommend it. .

Thankful for the friendly guard at the Palacio Nacional who informed me that I could enter this room…and then had it all to myself. Muchas gracias, señorita. .
