365 days ago, I set off on a journey to capture images of my life on a daily basis. I did this because I wanted to grow as an artist. I wanted to push myself to ‘see’ things differently, become a more confident and capable photographer, and capture priceless memories along the way. Today I celebrate, not only the welcoming of a new year, but the successful completion of this personal goal. I did it! I shot a picture EVERY DAY of 2013, and shared my favourites here with all of you.
As I look back on the last 365 days (and the 365+ images), I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, but more importantly, I am grateful. I had many supporters along the way, including an amazing group of fellow photographers who were doing similar personal projects this year. Together, we encouraged each other, pushed each other, celebrated successes, and picked each other up when we inevitably hit ‘ruts’ along our way. It was an amazing experience sharing this journey with all of you talented individuals, and I thank you so much for inspiring me on a daily basis.
Most importantly though, I would not have been able to achieve this goal without the incredibly selfless support of my family. It wasn’t easy for them to put up with having the camera around all the time, but they did…for me. They encouraged me to keep going, even on the couple of occasions when I wanted to quit. For this I will always be grateful. Thank you Keith, Ashton and Lauren for being my foundation. I dedicate this project to you! xxoo.
