2012: A Year in Photography


2012 was a busy travel year for me. I visited all seven continents, 18 countries and flew over 150,000 miles. I was exhausted for much of the year, but on the upside I came away with some amazing photos. I made some great strides as a photographer in 2012. I improved my mastery of Lightroom and have have worked on going out of my way to get better shots. My gear didn’t change much during the year. I purchased a new carbon fiber tripod in March and replaced the 18-200mm lens I had been using since 2007. I also celebrated my 5-year anniversary of publishing my daily photo and released my iPhone Travel Photography app.

It was a good year for photography and I plan on making 2013 even better!
