2017.. what a year!

2017 was a hell of a year. I left full-time employment to pursue this photography thing full-time. Still seems a little like a crazy thing to do, but so far so good. Because of this move I became a small business owner, I became a member of the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and the New Hampshire Professional Photographers Association. Also, I partnered up with Tanya Lee Hervey, a fantastic local portrait photographer, to get the Greater Rochester Camera Club off the ground and I couldn't be prouder of what that has become.

As I look back over they year I can only be thankful for the opportunities that have presented themselves and hopeful for those that will be coming in the new year to come.

Anyway, the images in the album below may not represent my so-called "best" images of the year, but they are my personal favorites. They include everything from my time shooting track side, two vacations (one to Texas and our annual trip to Hermit Island), portrait sessions, photo walks, and just goofing off with my camera.

I want to send a huge thank you to a few people who, without them, this year would have never been possible. First, my wife, Jillian. Her support keeps me going. All the members of the GRCC. We have huge plans for 2018, so stay tuned. Thank you to all my friends and family for the support. And to all the fellow shooters out there who keep me motivated and make me push myself, a huge, heartfelt thank you!

Here's to 2018. I'll see you there!
