2017 was pretty great.
This time last year, I was in Buffalo, exploring the city and watching hockey with my brother, Chuck. This time last year, I also made a conscious decision to become a better photographer in the studio and become proficient with lighting. That all started with a donut calendar for my sister who is a police officer. She now owns a candy shop in Dayton, and I help her and her business with images of sweets.
Looking back it's kind of insane how much life has changed in the past 12 months. I've started working at a pretty awesome new job that has taught me a lot, I've started working with a new group of people to create short films (we'll be available for commissioned work very soon), I've had a chance to reach out to old friends to work together, I've met a ton of new people to collaborate with, I won a lens with a picture of a cat (thanks for sitting for me Mo), I shot a few weddings, and I shot a few events.
Like I said, it's all been pretty darn great.
Hopefully 2018 has just as many opportunities for growth.
