*My 2013 POY. (Pictures of the Year)

Where does the time go? Even though my tenure as a staff photographer at the newspaper was abruptly cut short in November due to layoffs that eliminated our entire photo staff, it was still a very gratifying year for making images. Boarded a few airplanes for out of town personal assignments, utilized remote cameras, strobes, and the GoPro Hero3 camera for sports & feature work, and had a few NPPA winners throughout the year. Here are some of my favorites from 2013. Thanks for playing along…  ~cg.

Now that the holidays have come and gone, there’s still one other season that commands the full attention of photojournalists around the world: The “Pictures of the Year.” Whether it’s for local contests in the trade, yearly wrap-up galleries on a newspaper’s website to highlight the work of an entire staff, or of course preparing entries for the larger national and international competitions like the NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism, World Press Photo, and POYi (Pictures of the Year International), these next few weeks can be a stressful time for photographers.
