Best of 2010

I started 2010 in a power outage in Montana, searching for puppies in the snow. I'm writing this now from my parent's home in Georgia. Later this week I'll back in Montana to start the new year and hopefully it won't involve lost dogs or being stuck in the dark.

Looking back at the start of this decade it's strange to think that in 2000 there was no 9/11, or orange alerts, or Katrina. I wasn't in college when this decade started and people were worried about Y2K. I wasn't even a photographer yet. Not really. Lots can change in 1o years - or just 1.

What the last 365 days have involved is family, friends, travel, and fantastic food. I've put together my favorite photos from 2010 - both personal and professional. For me there isn't a way to separate them. I hope wherever you are (home, stuck in an airport terminal, toasty in a coffee shop) you get to celebrate the end of this decade with people you love. Happy New Year and enjoy the photos.

I think there are so many blog entries out in the interwebs that start with "I haven't been good about updating this blog." Let's just both give a nod of recognition and move on.

2010 brought a lot of changes for me personally and professionally. The more I've embraced my own photography the more opportunities and changes I've been presented with. I'm now a contributing photographer with Redux Pictures. I'm really excited about this partnership and how nice they have been to work with so far. Travel continues to be a major part of things: Atlanta, St. Thomas, New York, Tennessee, St. Louis, Wyoming and of course Montana and parts therein. That won't be changing next year and I'm looking forward to putting together the schedule in the coming months. You can also expect some changes to the website and new work as well. But as far as this year goes I got to spend so much time working on projects I really care about and seeing people I love. If those two things continue into next year I can't wait.

Here's to 2011 - cheers to you and yours. I hope the end of the year brings happy memories to you and excitement for things to come.
