As you may know I have been making my way through every photo I have ever taken, trying to pull the best images, and somehow organize everything a little better. The goal in the end is to make a series of different portfolio sites highlighting several types of work I do because it doesn’t make a lot of sense to show all my work to every client. I launched a rough version of my new very NSFW 35mm site yesterday and it’s a bit bipolar already without involving any of my event or commercial work.

For a while I was editing a month a day but things slowed down recently as I worked on Dinner With Igor and my Vegas photo album, but I finally finished going through all of 2010. Since people seemed to love my “Best of 2009” gallery I figured I should do a 2010 version. It’s pretty much just event work, I decided to leave the naked babes out of this, but the gallery is still NSFW.

2010 was interesting because I really stepped up my game as far as camera gear. I upgraded from the consumer camera the Nikon D-300 to the pro full frame D-700. I also stopped using kit lenses (I was always worried about bringing a $1700 lens into a nightclub) and bought a couple serious lenses including my standard event lens the 24-70mm 2.8. The odd thing is I think my event photography actually got worse as a result. My portrait work got a lot stronger but as I went through 2010 I noticed that I started slacking on my party photos. Looking back has made me want to up my game a little bit. I think this whole thing has been a great experience despite the tedium.

A few highlights from 2010 include:

I got laid off from my last real job in December 2008. Most of 2009 I was still thinking about getting a real job, receiving unemployment and trying to figure out what the hell I was doing next. By 2010 I was all in. Aside from spending a quarter of my income on camera gear I also started traveling a lot more including a month long trip where I photographed SXSW Film, SXSW Music, Winter Music Conference and then hit Slaughterama on the way home. It was a pretty good year.
