My Year in Restaurant Photography: 2012

Since I grew up in a college basketball-oriented household, I’ll be calling 2012 a “building year”…..  some nice efforts, a few great opportunities, and mostly a lot of learning.  It was definitely a year for developing, building, and laying the path for future jobs.

Many of the below photos were just personal photos taken when I went out to eat at a restaurant (MUCH too infrequently this year) but, as always, I love the impromptu natural, unstaged look to shots of food just as they arrive to your table.  I always judge a year by how many trips I took, how often I got out, restaurants I went to…. these are the important things to me. I don’t think 2012 will be one for the record books, but as you can see below, there were some great things to celebrate!
