What an amazing year, it truly has been an excellent adventure and I really enjoyed dedicating time to taking photos and improving my photography. Selecting the top 50 best photos had to be done over many coffees, beers and sakes.
A big thank you goes to Steve for not only helping selection but lending his expertise to editing, pushing me creatively and generally being my photography assistant all year.
I’ve split the photos into categories:
- People of the world
- The great outdoors
- The urban jungle
The top 25 photos will be published on Thursday 24th September.
