12 for 2012, a set on Flickr.
2012 was a year of many firsts for me. Among them were my first: model shoot; studio shoot; workshop attended; themed creative shoot directed by me; solo exhibit of my work; work with professional models, MUAs and stylists; fashion design (post-it notes, posterboard, coat-snaps and braided wire); sale of my mounted work!

This year I fully embraced lighting as an equal part of the photographic process, and studied it deeply. While I concentrated on portraiture and glamour, even my street, live music and landscape shooting hit personal peaks.

These twelve shots are a selection of some of the best from these firsts and peaks.

I'm looking forward to more growth in 2013.

A work of art always surprises us; it has worked its effect before we have become conscious of its presence.
