Colin Chisholm’s favourite photos from 2018
We capture a lot of moments in people’s lives from throughout the region. Terrifying moments, joyful moments, new beginnings, painful ends, and everything in between.
Sometimes we come prepared, camera ready, fully charged with an empty memory card, subject in frame and other times we’re at a breaking news scene and trying to make sense out of a chaotic situation – either way, we have to be on our game at all times to get that shot, the photo that helps to tell the story, or in some cases, tells the whole story and then some.
