How do you want to bring in the new year and what do you want to do? Good questions... Endless answers. 

Last year I took a job to photograph a huge production of a party in Pacific Beach. Not really my style, even then. I struggled to finish shooting through till midnight, almost convincing myself multiple times to leave the scene early. In true form I stayed through and left almost immediatly after I got the 'money' mid-night shot. I vowed not to do that again unless the money was too good to turn down. 

Fast forward one year and I wanted nothing to do with a new year's party of that magnitude.

Camping sounded like a good way to bring on 2015. So, we got a group of friends together and went camping. Nothing like a start to a new year than truly connecting with nature. 

Posted are some images from last year and a few from this year. 

Here is to a New Year! 

Dance moves.

Conversations around the fire and a private meeting in the van. This is where ideas are sprung, even though it was in the 30s that night.

Everyone kept really close to the fire, intrigued with ideas.

Star trails galore. At one point me and another guy walked down into a riverbed, it felt like our hands were going to freeze off as we gathered extra wood for the fire. That mission didn't last too long.
