I didn’t lollygag with photo editing on purpose but somehow it took me a month to get through my Mexico City photos. It was as if I thought I could hold onto the warmth and ease of being there by procrastinating.
When I made the leap into being a freelance professional photographer, I felt pretty confident in my photography. Being out in the world with a camera in hand was my happy place but I quickly discovered that there was a lot more to it than that.
I had been contemplating the Canon 16-35mm and Canon TS-E 24mm lenses for sometime and finally had an opportunity to rent them. At the end of 2018, I got asked to photograph the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago and there wasn’t a stringent creative brief involved.
