TOP 12 PHOTOS OF 2018

I can’t believe another year has come and gone. This year has definitely flown by. I am very thankful to all the photographers I have met in person and through social media, everyone has been very kind and encouraging. I hope that in 2019 we will all continue to support each other and thrive.

I thought I would share with you my favourite photos I have taken so far since starting my photography journey in August. I hope to work with more creators and artists in 2019.

Enjoy!

Lights at Richmond World Festival on August 31st.   This photo was one of the first photos I have taken to start off my photography journey. It was a new and exciting experience for me as I have never been in a photo pit before. I am very happy with how it turned out and I met someone in the photo pit who gave me some guidance while shooting.

Cody Muraro of Youth Fountain at the Biltmore Cabaret on September 21st.   Local Vancouver band Youth Fountain was kicking off their tour by playing a hometown show at the Biltmore Cabaret. It was such a fun experience to shoot at the Biltmore because I think it is a great little venue to start shooting at.

Brando Kotarski of RKX at 333 on November 8th.   I had to resort to using flash for this photo as the venue didn’t have good lighting. I really like how it is focused on him and the background is a little blurry. Also in 2019, I will be working with RKX to create some content together.

Jordan Howe of Widmore at 333 on November 8th.   I had such a fun time shooting Widmore and the crowd was full of energy. Unfortunately I didn’t get any shots from the other side of the stage as it was hard to move to the other side.
