Nine Highlights and Nine Best-Loved Instagram Images of the Year
As 2020 comes to an end I want to thank all of you for being here. This has been of year hard work, persistence, risk-taking, facing adversity, activism, innovation, and growth. Despite a 3-month shutdown with lots of ups and downs, I was able to adapt and stay creative. My nine highlights this year:
- I served dozens of portrait and headshot clients
- taught an amazing group of students in my photo courses
- completed two big personal photographic projects (Protest Portraits and Social Distancing: Images of a Small Town)
- introduced a new way of photographing people (One World Portraits)
- exhibited 17 times (2020 Exhibitions)
- won awards, including First Place in a juried national exhibit
- received a grant from the NH State Council on the Arts
- learned wet plate collodion (tintype) photography
- and added a tintype studio to my existing studio.
I’m ever grateful for all of my followers, clients, friends and family. Here are my most popular Instagram images of the year.
