2015 was a great year for me. Yes, I complain a lot but, that's how i hide the fact I'm having so much fun. I feel like my photography took a turn for the better and got a little more consistent this year. 2016 will mean bigger things. In the 1st quarter, I plan to have a new website to display my work. As the year progresses I hope to build a brand around at least one aspect of my photography. Probably my surfing or travel imagery. And of course, I hope to expand my social media following. Look for Darbe Images to go next level in 2016.
Here's a few of my favorite shots from the past year.
