When you commission me as an artist, you're getting someone who's doing far more than pushing a button. My work begins before your session date, and continues afterwards.I work on the right scene, lighting and settings to best capture your images.I shoot RAW, develop and retouch each image by hand to bring out the best in every frame.So if perhaps the investment might be a bit more than a shoot-and-burn person, the difference in time, effort, skill, experience, tools and quality is no comparison. Photos live on after us. Let's make sure yours are thoughtful, impactful, and legacy quality.
Here's me with my trusty sidekick, FreezeFrame. Together, we work to make you look amazing.
Before I became a professional photographer, I was a marketing creative by day, and a band member by night. But I'd grown up with a camera in my hands. I took my camera to concerts and parties, and photographed friends as we hung out.
One day, I learned that people did what I'd been doing for a living. For some reason, that hadn't occurred to me before. So I decided to begin taking photography seriously. I bought my first DSLR and fast lens, and began learning what all those buttons and dials do. Thankfully my friends were kind and gracious as I practiced on them.
This led to being hired for tours and festivals, portraits, products and events. My photos have been published nationally and internationally, and exhibited in solo and group shows.
Rooted in love for iconic imagery, I bring more than 15 years of photography experience to create stand-out images.
I believe everyone who steps in front of my lens is beautiful: our many varied colors, shapes, sizes, expressions, attitudes and everything that makes us uniquely individual. But more than that, I create a comfortable environment where wonderful moments unfold naturally.
