Favorite Concert Photos of 2016

It is hard to believe how fast the year has gone. 2016 was a particularly hard year for me personally. From losing the outlet for my work, that ultimately keeps the studios lights on, after the sale of Corbis Images. As well as the direct effect on my family of the Fort McMurray fires, and by far the scariest, my father's health. These thing all had a affect on how I pictured things through the lens, but I had a great year working the Juno Awards, the inaugural YYC Music Awards, and of course the many talent artists I have had the privilege of working with in 2016.

I have to thank all the artists that have allowed me to photograph them throughout the past year, as well all my clients for your creative projects, and choosing me as your photographer. Most of all thank you to anyone has for a moment enjoyed a single photograph I have taken, wether you have realized it or not. If only for a moment one of my captures touched you, I am eternally grateful. 

On that note please enjoy my favourites from 2016 (shown in order of date taken).

Have a happy holiday season, and wishing you a happy a prosperous New Year!
