Quick look back at 2012

Well, 2012 was my first full year as a freelance photojournalist and I’m thinking I made the most of it, even though there’s always more out there.  Aside from a whole lot of NASCAR, I started the year with politics and the presidential primaries in the south, followed by 2 weeks of Daytona 500 and Honda Classic PGA golf action.  Lots of football and basketball these days, with a peppering of news here and there.  Here’s a cross section of my 2012.  Shot my first F1 race, first Pikes Peak Hill Climb and first Nude Survivor (yes, nude).  Thanks to everyone who has helped me launch this freelance gig and to all my photo friends who talk shit all day and who can make one hell of a frame. When you branch out of the newspaper bubble, you realize there are some incredibly talented and hard-working photographers out there.  To the Getty NASCAR crew: you guys, week in and week out put together a fantastic set of work. It’s a lot of fun to work with such pro freelancers and staffers and it’s an honor to be part of that set of images.  To the AP editors and staffers in NY and ATL, I don’t know anyone who has done more to help out a brotha than yous guys. Having a small group of editors who trust you almost like a staffer to go get the job done right makes a world of difference from the photographer’s perspective (at least for me) and it makes me work my ass off for the team.

On to 2013!
