My Favourite Photos of 2015

Two thousand and fifteen was a year of major change for me. I moved on from a career in the nightlife and bar industry to pursue my passion full time. Not that my camera ever failed to be an important part of my existence, but it was time I took my work more seriously and made moves to share more of what I create with the world. That is essentially the purpose of this website. Beyond a point of contact, a social experiment, a place to book clients… this website is about sharing what I create. And despite getting a late start this calendar year as far as shooting regularly is concerned, this year I took more pictures than any other in memory, a trend which is set to multiple many times over as I’m already very booked in January.

I thought I would take today to offer a selection of my own personal favourite photos of mine from the year 2015. For one reason or another, these are the images that resonated with me most greatly, generated the most social media attention, or simply served to motivate me.

Thank you everyone for the incredible support since I launched this site in late 2015. Here’s to hoping we all grow bigger and better in the new year ahead!
