Prime Photographers Remember 2015

I hope you enjoy this look back at some of our favorite photographs of 2015. This was a last minute idea, yet Max, Katie, Christian, Lance, and Brendan were able to share a selection of images. I’ve worked with this talented group of photographers for just under six months. It is an honor to support their work and their careers.

I am trying to boil down all the adjectives I have for the following edit of photographs. The word that comes to the top is: astonishing.

Have a happy, healthy and fulfilling 2016.
