How far along into the new year can I post without looking like I just woke up from a coma? (I think after this week if I don't post something I should just ignore the fact that it's 2012 and act like nothing's new)
2011 was packed with experiences, learning and great people helping me along in my quest (nice and adventurous sounding, eh?:) to become a better photographer. I started and finished (yay me!) a Level 2 photography course with Desmond Clarke - one of the people I referred to earlier, who helped me to understand who I am and what I bring to a photograph (I still can't freaking 'see' light - I'm hoping I'll understand it before I die, but...)
I worked on many weddings, many corporate events and many official group photos, including being part of the team (thanks Scully and Curtis:) that shot Raoul Castro when he was here on Commonwealth business.
I'm grateful for every opportunity and obstacle that presented themselves to me in 2011 - without the motivation of both, I would not be able to say, as I can now, that I'm a better person and therefore photographer than I was one year ago...
And here's to bigger and better in 2012!
