I am not particularly fast at sorting through and developing photographs (yet), so a month went by while I worked an hour or two at a time to get through the more than a thousand photographs I made during the five days of Beakerhead 2015. I was only about a third of the way through the process when the Beakerhead secretariat put together the official Best of Beakerhead 2015 flickr album. So once I was finally ready to stop tweaking the images in my Beakerhead 2015 photo library, I thought it would be a good exercise to assemble my own best of Beakerhead album. I was originally going to go with 10 images. But then I considered that the official Beakerhead "best of" album contains 32 images selected from more than 700 that were already each photographer's "best of" images and I decided I needed to be even more selective. I'm not sure whether to I prefer to label them them my best, my favourite or something else, but here are 5 images that I think are representative of my photographic work during Beakerhead 2015.
Photographers with Benefits
No barriers access to 5 days of mesmerizing Beakerhead events is the primary reason I volunteer with the Beakerhead photo crew. A less obvious benefit is insider access - the chance to photograph places that are off limits to the general public, to preview events and to attend relevant photography workshops. I took advantage of several such insider benefits in the run up to Beakerhead 2015. I hope sharing some highlights will help me cope with my ongoing Beakerhead withdrawal symptoms!
