2018 Year in Review, White Mountains – Another year is coming to an end! For the past few years, I have been posting my "ten favorite images of the year" at the end of the year. But I have decided to drift away from that format this year and do a year in review.

This year marks my 20th year working in the photography industry. And I have been reminiscing about where my cameras have taken me in life. The photography industry and outdoor recreation in the White Mountains has changed drastically over the last two decades. But the one thing that has not changed is my 40-50 pound backpack. While I may complain about a heavy backpack, because of photography I have visited some incredible locations in the White Mountains. Hopefully, I have another 20 years behind the camera.

2017 Favorite Images, White Mountains – Another year is coming to an end. Can you believe it! It is that time of year when I look back on a year's worth of photography and share with you the images that stand out to me from 2017. But instead of doing my "ten favorite images of the year", like in previous years, I am going to do a year in review this year.

It has been a great year both in my professional life and personal life. But 2017 has been one of the strangest years I have ever had as a photographer. Over the last few years, I have been working on a few long-term photography projects. And one of these projects that focuses on the East Branch & Lincoln Railroad is currently being put into book format and will be published in the summer of 2018. And because of this the bulk of my field time this year didn’t involve photography, it involved mostly verifying information for the book.

2016 Favorite Images, White Mountains – Wow, another year is coming to an end! It is that time of year to look back on a years worth of shooting, and share with you the ten photographs that stand out to me from 2016. The included images are not necessarily my best images, but they are the most memorable from 2016.

It has been a great year for me both on a professional and personal level. I visited and photographed a bunch of new areas in the White Mountains region this year. And my appreciation for the backcountry gets stronger and stronger every year. We truly are blessed to have the White Mountain National Forest. I do hope more conservation efforts are made in the future to preserve the landscape of the White Mountains.

2015 Favorite Images, White Mountains – Is 2015 really coming to an end? As I sit here and write this, I just can’t believe the year is almost over. With the end of the year approaching, it is time for me to look back on a years worth of shooting, and share with you the ten photographs that stand out to me from 2015. This year I am going to add some commentary to make it a little more interesting.

Generally speaking, you find that conservation and environmental photographers tend to have diverse image collections that cover many aspects of the environment. The reason for this is because we shoot many different subjects and issues related to the environment from year to year. This year my work focused mainly on an area of the New Hampshire environment that is not often photographed, and my favorite images of 2015 reflect this.

Working with photography day in and day out, I tend to forget some of the incredible places I visit during the year. This end of the season post helps remind me of these places, and as to why I became a photographer in the first place. This year I included a few images not from the White Mountains to break it up some. I say it every year, and I am going to say it again today, the landscape of the White Mountains is incredible!

As an environmental photographer focused on human impact, much of my time is spent photographing the impact we humans have on the environment. Sometimes I forget about the beautiful locations in the White Mountains I get to visit and photograph. This end of the season post helps remind me as to why I became a photographer in the first place. The landscape of the White Mountains is incredible!

Favorite B & W Images of 2012

The Mt Washington Branch was built by the Boston, Concord & Montreal Railroad and completed in 1876. This branch traveled from the Fabyan House to the base of the Cog.

Favorite 5 Black & White images of 2012 – A few weeks ago I posted my 10 favorite images from 2012. What I did not include were any black & white images, so here is my favorite black & white images from 2012. During the film days, I shot roll after roll of AGFA Scala, and I have no idea why I drifted away from this process. I plan on shooting more b & w in the future.
