Revisiting my old work

I decided to visit my Flickr account today. 
I truly need to make that a more frequent thing than what it is.
I do love going back and seeing my work, the good and the bad. I like seeing the growth, and also in some ways how I have slipped.
I love how raw some of my older images are.
I hate how amateur some/most of my older images are.
It balances me to look back.
Gives me that old tingle, reminds me of why I pick up a camera in the first place.
My focus is shifting back to the editorial/photo journalist style of things and this just makes me more confident in that choice.
I want to start doing more stock photography, and also am going to try and get out there and just immerse myself in my city like I used to.
These are a few I pulled from the bunch.

Downtown Live 3.25.17

On Saturday March 25 select businesses in the downtown Grand Rapids area got creative and put on a live mannequin display in their window in an event called Downtown Live.

I had so much fun photographing I Got Face‘s entry and watching all the hard word and creativity that goes into an event like this.
The team that put together I Got Face’s store front won best makeup and that was very exciting! Congrats to you all!

All-Star Couture: Fashion Show

Here are a few shots from the All-Star Couture Fashion Show that took place back in September.

This was an all male fashion show. The first one in Grand Rapids, actually. It featured some of our local athletes modeling fashion from local stores.

It was so much fun! I absolutely love fashion shows, and I would love to shoot a lot more of these. I felt so at home while snapping, it was an incredible sensation.

I also had the opportunity to capture the athletes/models as they prepped for the runway.
