2014 through the lens

Wow it feels like 2 minutes since I did my 2013 round up post…. Its been 12 months.

2014 has been pretty damn fun. Not alot has been happening this month, it’s that time of year I guess. It’s been a great time to re-focus on goals for 2015. Not gonna lie, goals for 2015 make me feel nauseous. Go big or go home though right? Yeeeeah!

Everything has it’s ups and downs, but the ups have been awesome and downs have been, well, shit, but you wouldn’t appreciate the ups without the downs, and vice versa.

2014 will be the year I’ll remember by the fact I got to shoot Linkin Park I think. That was such a huge thing for this year, a massive highlight. I have to literally pinch myself still. I would LOVE nothing more to shoot portraits of them some-day, along with many other bands and artists. Who knows what the future holds though – So you gotta appreciate every opportunity for what it is and enjoy it and move forward.

It was also great to go back to visit India & I got to shoot portraits out there too. It was pretty incredible. I just love shooting people’s faces. So unique and different and everyone has a story to tell. I hope to do more of this in 2015.

Here’s a roundup of  2014, and I’m stoked to say it’s music infested!

I’m ready for 2015 and seeing what new opportunities develop, and to also really smash some big goals I have.

Wishing you all an amazing New Year!!!!
