Best of 2021 | Mike

December 05, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Here at the studio, we can’t believe there are only a couple weeks left of 2021. So we thought we’d celebrate by asking each of our photographers to find their favorite images from this year and reflect on what all we’ve done! This week, we’re taking a look at Mike’s year in review. 

This was really the first year that each of us took on our own school and spent time getting to know the students and communities. Mike covers Dixie High and his images are a great representation of his first year of covering that school.

We also asked everyone to give us a little insight into their yearly favorites, too!

And lastly, we asked everyone one last question - what are you looking forward to most in 2022? 

Mike said that next year, he’s mostly looking forward to is the release of our preferred camera’s brand’s latest models, the X-T5 and the XH2. Well, and our next adventure as a team - building a new studio, which has been a long awaited dream come true for the four of us!
