2014 was a big for me professionally and personally. I went from running a production company & being a tour documentarian for Zac Brown Band to running my own business as a freelance digital filmmaker. Conversely, my work grew exponentially with a slight change in theory: I went from trying to sneak pictures of people in their environments to engaging with them. Following in one of my favorite artists footsteps, Andy Sapp, as a street photographer, I stepped out from behind the lens and met the people I was photographing.
While there might be a few pictures from the tour days interspersed, leaving has given me an opportunity to develop my own style. And while it's not easy to break into the freelance world individually as a cinematographer & director, I guarantee you this: Even if I don't, I'll die trying.
Hope you enjoy my favorite stills from 2014.
Thanks for viewing. Personally, I can't wait to see what 2015 brings into the picture.
