For a year, I was responsible for all of the imagery, social media and digital presence for 8 restaurants. It was a bit of a impossible job because it is incredibly difficult for one human to be in 8 places at once. Either way, I did it and did it decently well and so to this day I still get emails asking if I’d do the photography and social and digital for this restaurant or that bar.
Last year I meticulously counted each and every restaurant shoot. I intended to do the same for 2018 but somewhere in the middle of fall, I lost count. When I started freelancing, every opportunity felt so fleeting. What if this was my last shoot? Now, it’s sort of funny to think that I had such anxieties.
I wish I could sit with each and every one of you that looks through these photos to tell you all about the people and the moments pictured below. Portrait photography continues to be the smallest portion of my photography work but I spend a lot of time thinking about it.
Every year as December rolls around, I start getting text messages and emails about good camera gifts. Often I get asked about good entry level cameras. I’m really out of touch with the current market of camera gear for beginners.
