While looking through the thousands of rectangles that represent what I’ve seen and done this past year, I’m reminded of how much things can change in a year’s time. I started 2012 off by moving to a new home in a new state for a new job. After 5 years in a place I had gotten to know well, I felt it was time for something different. The path I chose brought me to Bend, Oregon, working for the daily newspaper and living in a paradise for outdoor recreation. Though excited for new opportunities, I forgot how challenging it can be to uproot your life and start over somewhere new, leaving behind good friends and familiar faces and places.
Life in Oregon has been a big change in routine as well. I think working fewer and more sporadic hours, though, has really reminded me how much I enjoy my job and how grateful I am I can make a living this way. New surroundings have helped recharge me visually and have motivated me to keep pushing myself.
I finally finished a new website for my work in 2012, joeklinephotography.com. I plan to shoot more freelance work, weddings, and personal projects in the coming year.
These photographs are some of my favorites from the past year. I look forward to more of the spontaneous and often unpredictable experiences, as well as the people that accompany them, in my life and work in 2013.
Love these. Looking forward to seeing what you do in 2013.
Thanks Kate! You’re awesome, thanks for all the support and for continuing to stop by!
Fantastic work man!
