2008 – The Year In Pictures
As each year passes, I find it helpful for both my development as a photographer and a human to reflect on my experiences and actions of the prior year. 2008 was a magical year for me in many ways; my most notable accomplishment being the completion of my CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate). Preparation for this exam took my coworker and I over one year to complete. We persevered through hectic days at work, illness, and each other’s personal agendas. I hope 2009 will bring another career certification and further success in the work place.
2008 was also an unbelievable year for my photographic endeavors. I was privileged to cover my first wedding, my first braves game, and concerts for nearly all of my favorite bands. This great opportunity known as concert photography has proven to be my true passion in life and has inspired me to create the compilation of images below.
I hope this collection brings you joy as you reflect on the concerts and music that you witnessed in 2008.
