So as so many of us begin to comfortably tuck away into some corner of the world to celebrate holidays and time with our loved ones and bid farewell to one year and salutations to another, just wanted to send out a warm and happy holiday greeting to all you beautiful peoples! Thank you SO much for being a major part of one of the most encouraging years of my photographic journey. I made some of the best images I feel I’ve made to date, from the epic winter journey to Yosemite to the summer adventure to Yosemite to the 3 Utah and Colorado National Parks road trip to the San Francisco madness, the podcast photo critiques to the National Park “Spirit of the Mountain” Photo Contest to the billboards in Scotland and the Beef Jerky labels in Topanga, selling my first ever proper art prints that are now hanging on walls in two different countries, and through to having the honor of being asked to join the Samsung Imagelogger program. It’s been pretty crazy. A year of milestones and growth for myself that I haven’t ever experienced before.
I feel truly blessed and grateful for the wonderful community and friends that I have made here and everywhere. You are all some of the most inspiring and creative and beautiful people I’ve ever come in contact with and our relationships mean more to me than you can imagine. I’m so glad you were able to share in these moments with me and that you have allowed me to share in your moments as well, moments that have certainly run across the emotional gamut. You’ve more than pushed me and kept me moving when I didn’t think I wanted to and I can only hope to have provided you a smile or a thought every now and again. It’s been an absolute blast and cannot wait to see where we take it from here.
So 2013, we had our ups, and we definitely had our downs, we had some bad times, but made up for them with some really good times and good people, so thank you, peace out…it was fun.
