The Best of 2015

Sometimes your best photographs aren't your best photos. In other words, sometimes the photo that you're striving for may please your client or editor, but it's not the best photo on the roll so to speak, such as this gallery below. I consider these photographs to be OUTTAKES for the most part, or more specifically, special outside observances while on assignment, or even more specifically: good old-fashioned snapshots of things I thought were cool ;-)


The Year of Sony & Zeiss

I sold old all of my camera gear and completely switched to Sony Mirrorless Cameras and Zeiss and Sony lenses in 2015, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I have also influenced many others too, directly or indirectly, to switch (from another brand) and/or purchase about 18 different Sony cameras, and at least a dozen lenses. It's been a lot of fun, but I don't get paid a penny by Sony to refer photographers to Sony cameras. I do it because they are simply the best, and a blast to shoot with.

I make my full-time living with photography using Sony mirrorless cameras, shooting in 2015 for such clients as HBOSun Bum and City Furniture. Below is a list of the gear that I used for the photos in this post, and the selected photos where shot in every month of 2015 except June.
