In 2022, I focused on "what" I wanted to do in photography and plan out future projects to work on.
For 2023, I want to work on these goals in photography:
*Be more involved in photography clubs
*Win a few contests
*Push myself to try something new in photography
*Work on the project ideas I have
So far, I recently joined the Boston Camera Club. Joining another club will help me learn more about photography, have more people critique my photographs and more. I became the new Web/Social Media Content Creator for the Whaling City Camera Club. I also entered three photography contests this year where I won third place in Night Time Photography (Whaling City Camera Club) and second place in Photojournalism (Boston Camera Club). The several contests I entered in 2022, I did not win any of the contests I entered. Lastly, I have a few project ideas I will be trying out during this year to add to my portfolio, you can look forward to seeing them soon!
I won a contest

This is my first time winning a contest since 2021. I entered a few contest's throughout the year, but have not won a contest. I officially broke the year long steak and won third place in Urban Night Photography.

New Portrait Project
Small Summary Of Sept. to October 2022
I have not done many personal photography works in the past few months then I wanted to focus on. My job took over, I focused on that most of the time, but I have not forgotten to focus on my own work.
Below are a few piece's of work I have taken in the last few months, all of them I was at a location for my job, and stopped to take these photos. I was photographing a golf tournament during the fall season, and I got these three colored trees in perfect alignment. Another time worked a photography job in Plymouth, but I had three hours where I walked around town and got a few photos in the evening.
I did go to a forest photography workshop in Vermont early morning the beginning of October, I ended up losing those photos after the trip. After all this I'm going to begin planning some trip's and wander around looking for photo's to take.
So, i have not disappeared from my website! Look out for my photography post again!

Photojournalism in Boston: Part 1
The First weekend in April, I explored several different parts of Boston, MA. The Whaling City Camera Club had an upcoming Photojournalism competition and I needed new content to enter. I started in Faneuil Hall, where street vendors are making balloon animals and performers entertaining the crowd. I captured the right moment of a guy looking at me through the colorful balloons, he looked like he was enjoying the day selling balloon hats. I then walked to the Boston Common, Boston market, and the north end. At the Boston market, surrounded by many people selling products and customers trying to find the perfect price, I noticed a fish market hidden beneath people walking. While hopping into a different shop at North End, one of my favorite photographs I took was of a young woman posed in an Italian bakery/shop. The lighting, the colors, and the moment made me stop to take this photo.
After this trip, I'm planning more walks around Boston to work on my photojournalism work and to find the moment in the crowds.
New Banner Update
After a few months, I have been focusing on some photography ideas and waiting until the warmer weather comes back to New England, I am back to updating my website! During the last few months, I have been busy photographing candid photos at conferences, capturing a high school ice hockey team winning the state championship at TD Garden in Boston, and a variety of school dances that are coming back after covid hit the last two years. With warmer weather around the corner, I decided to visit some places on my bucket list to capture portraits, photojournalism, and some people photography. Portraits and photojournalism are two areas of photography that I have been enjoying and perfecting for the last four years since I graduated. I will still take photos in other areas of photography, but my goal is to capture people at the moment or portraits that those people enjoy.
