2016 Photo Review

This year end Photo Review covers my work from 2016 and features some of my favorite photos from the year. Headshots became my primary work in 2016, but there were still plenty of opportunities for group photos, editorial work and fine-art work. While most of my work these days is for hire, I still love my personal work, Burning Man, road trips and finding people with unusual True Callings. Here are some of my favorite photos from 2016 divided into categories for this Photo Review.

Studio Portraits with Props

Starting off the photo review with our studio work and headshots, we have so many great subjects. This year we started offering longer sessions and some of our most fun sessions involved props.
