Photographically 2011 was an amazing year for me. Lots of new opportunities came my way, 3 magazine publications, some product shoots, and a few personal projects. While everyone was out last night celebrating the end of 2011 and welcoming in 2012 I was going through Lightroom looking at the various projects I had worked on in 2011. For me I celebrated 2011 by walking down memory lane, thinking about what had been done and looking towards 2012 and the plans I have.
Here are some of the photographs that highlight my 2011. Enjoy!
I started off the year in January with a Yoga Shoot.
A personal project and one a lot of people really like, my last Mocha Art shot.

Best wishes to everyone in this new year!
