I cannot believe that 2012 is over! It was wonderful to be a part of, witness, and capture so many cool things. I still have a long way to go in this profession for sure, but I believe I was able to make a couple of decent frames in the past 12 months. My goals for 2013 include trying to learn more from seasoned pros — you know, those folks who seem to produce stellar work on almost a daily basis.

Anyways, below is a selection of what I consider to be my best photos of 2012.

    We need some games shot but I need to make sure I can afford you — just some general games. Women’s soccer now and some basketball when that season starts in October.
