2016 has been a great year for me both personally and photographically. At the end of June I left my day job to pursue photography as a full time job. I have now been full time for 6 months and 1 day, to be exact, and can say it is the best decision that I made in 2016. In this time I have been privileged to work with both national companies and local companies in Leicester, many of whom have now become regular clients. I started my new Sports Portraiture Project and will be continuing this throughout 2017. This project has proved incredibly useful to improving my photographical skill, and has also been great for networking; I recommend all photographers to take up a project of some kind that has meaning to them. My favourite photos from 2016 are below.
