As I'm very, very late with posting this, I don't have much that is fresh to reflect upon... But I can tell you that the second month of my time as a staff photographer at The Coeur d'Alene Press gave me many opportunities to keep pushing, try new things and have fun. This paper offers me a lot of freedom to take risks, so I'm going to keep taking them every chance I get.
As always, thank you for looking. I hope you enjoy what you see; and if you have any feedback you'd like to give, please, don't hesitate to send it my way!
