My Favorite Photos of 2016

Here is a selection of my favorite photos from last year.  It was an interesting year.

I was doing most of the marketing photography for Brooks Institute.
The school was shut down in October.

I photographed strong, graceful and talented women.

I found a sleeping mermaid.  Been looking for a long time.

I went on a night dive in Hawai’i with 7 manta rays.
It was way more exciting than I thought it would be.

I paid a lot of attention to light and the magic of Lightroom.

I spent hours with a lizard, looking for something different.

I watched an extraordinary man with a kite and a surfboard do things
with the wind and waves that I didn’t think possible.
