This is the time of the year when we traditionally look back on the events of the past and look forward to fresh opportunities in the new year.
Indeed, I’ve been very blessed with the events of this past year. My client list has grown thanks to assistance of my youngest daughter. She has taken over my marketing, and while growth is slow, the signs are there that traction is beginning to take hold. And while I’m the first to say, “equipment doesn’t make the photographer”, I’ve been able to upgrade and expand the tools residing in my bag of tricks.
As I look back at my personal favorite images of 2018, I’m encouraged by my growth. Technically, the overall quality of my imagery is improving, as is my lighting and composition. Artistically, I see greater connection with my subjects and an overall improvement in expression.
Even with that said, my “perfect image” still alludes me. I know 2019 will be filled with many training opportunities to be taken advantage of. Perhaps that is the unifying flaw of all artists… never being satisfied with their work!
I’d like to share some personal images with you taken on the very first few of days of this new year. My eldest daughter gifted me a trip to one of our favorite places – the huts of the 10th Mountain Division (www.Huts.org). We spent the new year in the mountains at Margy’s Hut, just North of Aspen, CO, at 11,300 feet.
So, to all of you, I truly do wish you a very joyous and prosperous new year. If I can be of service, please don’t hesitate to give me a shout!
