It was quite a busy year. I photographed everything from beekeepers trying to maintain their way of life to aviation students to a high energy fashion show. Looking at the past and glimpsing into the future, I photographed an iconic downtown sign being removed. It was later restored and replaced. Some young people struggled to figure out how to make a better future for themselves while others were busy filming their way to stardom. Spokanites went to shows, beat each other up on roller skates and saw their hometown college team ranked No. 1 for the first time. I ended the year halfway around the world at a military base, photographing the lives of our deployed service members.
