The 2010 Holiday Grab Bag

Instead of showing you some cool new stuff that I shot in November (which I don’t have, because I was playing hooky in a deer blind) I’m now going to shift gears and thank the folks that have allowed me to perpetuate my twenty-five-year existence without cubicles, neckties, or shiny shoes. So, without further adieu, I give you all my first annual, year-in-review,┬áHoliday Grab Bag.

This month, I’ve plucked and posted a sampling of images that have been published in 2010. I’m not quite ready to announce an official return to the Salad Days, but I will cautiously hint (with guarded optimism) that 2010 has shown modest re-growth in my photography business. After two years of wondering if my next paid shoot might be at K-Mart Portrait Studio, I am pleased to report that the phone is ringing again, images are being downloaded, CASH is changing hands; and for all of that I am immensely grateful. Depression, recession, downturn, country-butt-kicking, blood-letting…whatever. You can call it what you want, but I’m damn happy that we have apparently weathered the worst of it.

A huge thanks to everyone who licensed my work in 2010. I know that you have lots of options for quality photography, and I’m proud that you count me among them. I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season, and I look forward to working with you again in 2011 and beyond.
