December 29, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Assignment photography is not a core part of my business, but an area of that I enjoy covering. So when The Herald or Valley News calls with a job I try to say yes as often as possible. I shot contra dancing, a fair amount of sports - including a couple championship games, politics, manufacturing (for Seven Days), graduations, a parade, the Women's March, among others. Here are 50 of my favorites and be sure to check out the year in review images from our local news sources and their talented photographers.
