2016 has been an unusual year for me.
As a photographer, my passion is to document other people's lives and tell stories using photos instead of words.
This year, I was unable to tell many of your stories because the newspaper I work for created a situation that forced the newsroom staff to go on a defensive strike. I am also the president of the union local that represents the 55 newsroom editors, reporters, photographers and support staff, and a member of the bargaining committee. Needless to say, those positions take up a good deal of time.
Despite not having a lot of latitude to do what I love, I did have the opportunity to go on a few photo assignments for the Local Xpress. Below are some of the assignments I had the pleasure of being involved with.
Here's hoping that 2017 will be a year to remember and a year to photograph.
