2017 Photo Review

My 2017 Photo Review. 2017 was the first full year I had a permanent studio. So in the year I tried to hone my studio craft. Here is my studio-heavy set of favorite photos from 2017.

Facing Time Project

The Facing Time Project was my big personal project in 2017. I photographed people between the ages of 55 and 100 and asked them their thoughts on aging and what advice they would have. Pearl, age 100, was my favorite subject. See all 43 subjects to date and get their advice on Facing Time Project portfolio.

Metal Background Portraits

What started as a studio round of my True Calling Portraits, morphed into one of my favorite backgrounds ever. Here are my favorite Metal Background portraits from 2017.
