I enjoy looking back every year on my work. I want to enjoy what I produced but also take some lessons to improve for the following year. Some photographers do a “Best of”. The images below are not necessarily the best images I took, but they represent the direction I was working on in 2017. I am always learning and I attended a fantastic workshop in January 2017 in Texas. The Foundation workshop. It is a workshop aiming at improving your photo journalistic style. It also aims at making you understand the way that you shoot and how you you can improve. It is a photographic teaching session but also a life experience. I loved my time there and I learnt lots. I met fantastic people and made new friends. The teachings are not always implemented straight away, they take time to mature.
In 2017, I also worked with a mentor, Daniel Aguilar, who helped me implement and reflect on the teaching from Foundation. Being a photographer is such a lonely profession at times and having someone that provides you with advice, critique and encouragement can also help a lot. I have certainly enjoyed the sessions and they have helped me to slowly keep improving in some areas.
The images below are only a summary of these learnings. I have tried to included a bit of my street photography in my work, pushing the documentary side on my photography while providing some considered portraits to the bride and grooms that work with me.
2017 was a very busy year with around 45 weddings and the images below only represent a small fraction of what I did. I really hope that you enjoy the set below and I would love to hear from you!
