Favorite Photos of 2015 - January to June https://www.kenreabephoto.com/blog/2016/1/favorite-photos-of-2015-pg1 These are some of my favorite photos from assignments and events in 2015, including some photos that have never been published before.  It doesn't come close to showing everything but it is a good representation of the great places I've been and things I've seen in 2015.  Some that I chose are significant moments or subjects, some are interesting colors or compositions, others were just fun assignments for me to shoot.

 

The year 2015 marked my first full year as a working freelance photojournalist.  I'd like to thank anyone and everyone who had something to do with the fun I had making these photos.  I especially thank these publications and media companies who trusted me with assignments to tell photo stories on their behalf: Barry Reeger and the staff at Trib Total Media; Joe Hermitt and the folks at The Patriot-News / Pennlive.com; Jamie Schwaberow, Rich Clarkson, Chris Steppig, and everyone affiliated with Clarkson Creative / NCAA Photos; and the large group of photographers and supportive staff associated with MaxPreps.com.  Thank you all for trusting in me and making my first year of fulltime freelance work better than I could have ever imagined.

 

I've divided this into two posts, each covering 6 months, to make it easier to view. Hover over the photos if you like to read the caption information. The photos appear in a mostly chronological order. Online story links are provided in some cases.  Now... on to the photos! 

 

Before we begin, I noted something interesting while preparing my year in review.  My first assignment of the year for the Trib was of something being created, a brand new home under construction near the iconic Murrysville tree sign.  Oddly, my last Trib assignment of the year, published December 31,  was at a place associated with endings... Union Cemetery near Greensburg.  Having those two assignments as the bookends for many thousands of photos I took in 2015 frames up the year with an ironic perspective.

Welcome to my Blog! (v3.0) https://www.kenreabephoto.com/blog/2016/1/welcome-to-my-blog-v3-0 OK, I'll admit it...

History shows that I stink at maintaining a blog. In two past attempts I've found that I get a few initial ideas to write about, but my attention gets redirected elsewhere and I'm just too erratic to write posts on a set schedule. If I have to think about coming up with a fresh topic just to keep up a set posting routine, it's not going to work out well. 

 

Yes, my blog has been rebooted yet again, but I'm going with a different strategy for the content this time.  Beginning in January of 2016, I'll make at least a monthly post of some of my favorite photos taken the previous month. No more trying to write elaborate stories to describe the pictures I take.  I'm going to simply let the pictures and their captions do most of the talking for me.  Since the last time I made a serious attempt at blogging, I've left the corporate world and freelance photography is a full time passion and business for me.  I am blessed to frequently have several news and sports photo assignments a week for newspapers and electronic media companies, so the variety of topics I shoot is much greater than it was in the past.  Many of the photos I shoot are interesting and unique but they often are not seen by anyone except me, because there is only so much room in a newspaper each day for photos.  So I'll use the blog to post my favorites and to share with you some of the interesting places and people that I get to photograph.  It might be 5 pictures or 25, depending on what's happening that month, but there should always be something new to browse through.  I might write an occasional feature story too if something interesting happens but I'm not going to press myself to write just to write.  I think most folks will enjoy checking in for the photos and I'll do my best to make it worth a few minutes of your time. 

 

I'll try very hard to get photos posted in the first few days of each month, but subscribe to my feed to be notified anytime I post something new.  I will also announce them on Twitter and Facebook, so be sure to follow me there too.

 

Until then...

-30-
