2014 - Year in Review

December 31, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Well, another year has past and I like to review the past year and see what I accomplished.  I spend so much time feeling like I am not making progress, not moving forward, not getting anything done but when I look back I'm often amazed.  While I've had many successes in my non-photography life (compliance career) this year, I will focus this post solely on my photography.   So here is my list of what I consider my 5 biggest photography accomplishments.

2014 Year in Review2014 Year in Review


1.  I created new work - a lot of new work.  Some was good and some was more learning but I am amazed at how I managed to create, especially given the other demands on my time and energy.

2.  I was in 2 group exhibits with the fabulous Fine Art Portrait Photography Guild group. 

    In March my photograph "Indigo Blues" was included in an exhibit at the Be U gallery in Houston, TX.  I got to travel and attend the opening which was an amazing experience.

And in August my photograph "Awaken" was included in a group show at Star Gallery in Orlando, Florida.  Unfortunately I was unable to travel to that show.



3.  I had my first stock sale on Arcangel Images.  It was my cardinal image and it's on a book cover in Germany.  I also had an image licensed as a digital download CD Cover.


4.  I had work published in the magazine "Obscurae".

2014 has been a great year!  I can't wait to see what 2015 has to bring.  Tomorrow I'll share my goals and hopes for the new year.

Happy New Year!
