2013 Year in Pictures

After getting married in November and getting through the holidays, I'm finally getting some time to publish my best images of 2013.

The gallery includes work from photographing weddings, South Carolina and Clemson sports, the NFL, ESPN production stills and NBA. I really enjoy the diversity with my job. Each event is different but many techniques used from one event can be used to photograph another.

Many thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you enjoy the images.
