At the start of 2016, a new year approaches, which will be sure to bring new adventures, stories, challenges, and photographs. Throughout the year, I’m always looking closely at individual images and projects, and find tremendous value in looking back at the greater picture, considering the forrest and not only the trees. It helps to get a sense of what I’m most proud of, the work that has been accomplished, lives that have been touched, the stories that have been captured, and where I can improve. Perhaps most of all, it underscores the amazing people and places I’ve gotten to visit throughout the year. 2016 will have just as many of those, and for that I’m grateful. Thanks to all who made 2015 a great year, and to those along for the ride this year!
