Welcome to my annual “Best Of” blog post series! If you’re new here, each year I select my personal favorite 100 photos, taken since my last birthday. It’s such an interesting and difficult exercise! Some are favorites due to the overall execution, and some I’ve just developed an attachment to over time. It’s such a beautiful way to review the year.

This last year in particular has seen so many major milestones.

10 years. An entire decade. That’s the mark I hit in my touring career in 2023. It’s hard to put my finger on the point when it switched from being my aspiration to something I could call my career. But however it happened, I feel so grateful for this life.

It’s wild to refer to this collection of images as only what has happened in the past calendar year. It feels like several years worth of experiences. Most notably, I began touring with Coldplay (as of March 2023). Fast-forward to today, and I’m so excited to be nominated for iHeart Radio’s “Favorite Tour Photographer” Award for my work with Coldplay. I’ve been overwhelmed and emotional by the support I’ve received in light of this. (The award is determined by public online voting, and you can vote every day through March 25th at

Also notable of this last year: I was able to rejoin Simple Plan for some tours, create some new studio and editorial work that I love, pass my 8-year LA anniversary, and generally return some balance to my life.
