2014 In Review: On Assignment

December 27, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

A couple dozen newspaper and magazine assignments this year. This kind of work is usually pretty interesting and challenging because you get assigned to do a wide variety of things - like portraits, news worthy events, sports, etc. and then you have to try to tell the story in just a few images - plus get names and important information while you're at it. It is good exercise for a photographer.
