Overall, 2016 had it's highs and it's blackhole of lows. Despite the close and global losses I have experienced, it has been one of my best years. I decided to pick up my camera again and take everything on a more serious level. My voice developed tremendously and I challenged my comfort zones.
This summer alone I interned for Live Nation, photographed a day of Warped, shot a heck load of shows and took way over 10,000 pictures. The year ended with me going on my first tour and shared the experience with people I now consider some of my closest friends.
I've had so many opportunities and met the most wonderful people. I realized my limits and know what I need to work on. I'm proud of myself and have accomplished a bunch this year, and I don't need to wait for reassurance from the public to tell me whether or not I'm succeeding.
For 2017 I'm going to continue to push my myself, continue seizing as much experience as I can, and hopefully work on more tours. That being said, I decided to compile some of my favorite shots of the year (clicking the image will allow it to expand with info on location and month).
I thought 2016 might have been a peak, but I'm just getting started.
