I was just reading a fellow photographer’s year in review posts and was inspired to create my own. My version will be a list of favorites. Here goes…
Favorite Art Therapy
Favorite Small Town
I spent several months here in the Spring documenting life and culture and portraits of place. I discovered I really like to take portraits of place (i.e. pictures of a scene with no people in them). I also discovered that Amesville is a really cool community.
Favorite Self Portrait
“You made god smile.”
There are so many to choose from. But I think the NLGJA National Convention in Philly was my favorite. I got to be part of the Connect: Student Journalism Training Project, and make some awesome friends and mentors in the process.
Favorite Story I Wrote
Favorite Mentorship Program
I was honored to be be selected as a mentee in the Inaugural Women Photograph Mentorship Program. @womenphotograph is an awesome organization sheding light on gender disparities in the photojournalism industry and promoting incredibly talented female, nonbinary, and transgender photographers.
My favorite twitter thread is their Week In Pictures Gender Breakdown. Every Monday they report data on the break up of male vs. non-male photographers highlighted in different publications’ week in picture slideshows. *Spoiler* they are usually heavily male dominated.
Favorite Class Project
