Photographer Amanda Hatfield has taken a lot of pictures for BrooklynVegan in 2012, and though we realize the year isn't over yet, we asked her if she would list her favorite shots from the past year. This list may need to be updated in January, but meanwhile check out the rest of what she chose (with links to the full sets above each picture), below...

Please give me the access that she gets, and I will give you the photos that crush the souls of these. I still love you Amanda.

1:31 - that was the douchiest comment ever. I hope you're proud of yourself. And for the record, I bet your photos wouldn't crush anything. There's a reason why you're the one commenting and she's the one shooting.

The only male in the list is that Death Grips guy? Ohkeee ....

What do you call an artist without talent?

A photographer.

When I'm agreeing with the AMIRITE guy, you know we're dealing with a real asshole.

Hey Mr. Crack Of Dawn Hate Joke Poster...this is what you choose to do with your time at 6:44am in the fucking morning? Geez...you are truly pathetic.

BV, ban this asshole who goes by the names ME, F5ing loser, etc..., Jellytaint, JV Sausage, etc. Guarantee well see a precipitous drop in not only the hate "jokes" spew above, but also the hate posts in other threads as well.

DO THE RIGHT THING BV, BAN THIS ASSHOLE.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 9:23 AM

Wow, it takes a real Superbowl level assface to be so unswervingly douchey. I must hand it to you ME/F5ing loser, etc.../Jellytaint, when you decide you want to expose yourself you really do it right. Problem is no one wants anything to do with you, and by the end of the day you will be gone like the shit I just took. So, smell ya l8tr brah, not nice knowing ya

This is really when BrooklynVegan should moderate comments. Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!

Posted by claire | December 3, 2012 10:41 AM

It's a hard job and most of these folks don't get paid shit. Thanks for sharing your work with us Amanda. Keep it up. And if you can introduce me to that singer for Widowspeak I'll buy you a drink :-)

"It's a hard job"

Maybe in the days of film, but in the digital age? Point and shoot.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 7:01 PM

Fiona Apple need to lay off that crack.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 7:24 PM

Amanda - These are great shots its been a great year for you behind the camera and for fans of BV. Well done BV for showcasing Amanda's great talent and for supporting her.

"Maybe in the days of film, but in the digital age? Point and shoot."

If it's point and shoot, how come none of these photos are credited to "Anonymous"? Oh right, because you don't have the talent, patience or professionalism to actually do this. Get a life.

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2012 9:37 AM

it is a hard job, but only a few of these are actually above average. most are just kind of from the JJ Abrams, lens-flare=drama school.

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2012 7:42 PM

Awesome work Amanda! You are the hardest working photographer on the interwebs! and the M83 photo is hot hot hot lady! Well done!
