As I sat down to write my blog post about what's in store for me in 2018, I realised that I hadn't done a wrap up of the previous year. If I cared at all about closure - and I do - I wouldn't neglect a classic "2017 favs" post. Here goes.
I did a lot of shooting in my first year as a full-time freelance photographer. I photographed people, food, small businesses, and even a live art installation. Each shoot posed its own challenges, and, I'd say, in 75% of the shoots I had at least one eureka moment. That feeling of being really excited about an image, even when viewed on the back of a 2.5 inch screen, is hard to beat.
So here are a few of my favourite images from 2017. Each one is here for a different reason, and these aren't necessarily my most technically accomplished shots. Let me know what you think.
