2015 was a great year for T. Cooper Hull Photography, LLC! Besides our normal captures, we also stepped into the past and took on some news and sports assignments for some of the local news sites in Charlotte. All in all, it was a fun year in pictures. As I say every year when I sit down and go through my files, these are my favorite captures. I don’t like to call them my best because I may have shot a better picture that didn’t make the list. When looking back at favorites, I think about more than the actual image. I remember the atmosphere and how everyone involved was feeling. I like to try to get to know the people, like Courtney Hunter. He’s a soft-spoken football player who gets the offensive line going before the game, but you wouldn’t know his family’s struggle of being homeless before he began attending JCSU. Sometimes it’s not the action that caught my attention, like during one of Tarik Cohan’s touchdowns. It’s the reaction from the fans in the background. You are pulled into the emotion of the moment. I’ve always tried to capture that feeling and emotion from my early days as a photographer. With that said, please enjoy my favorite captures of 2015!
I know it’s late but I’ve finally got enough free time to sit back and reflect on my favorite shots of 2014. I always hate when I see the “best of” so I go with my favorites. Each shot touched me or brings back a certain feeling of the time when it was taken. 2014 was a special year for me. My health was better and I was able to get out more to do the thing I love the most. It was a great year shooting music because I got to photographs acts that have been on my bucket list like Trombone Shorty.
I moved away from so much jazz and enjoyed some indie music with my “Mini-Me”
and had a chance to photograph artists I grew up with like Howard Hewett and Rakim.
I didn’t stop with just hanging in the photo pit. From watching my own daughter winning her summer golf tour
to catching one of South Carolina’s top high school football prospects, sports was a big part of 2014.
