About me

Photography | Film & Video | Drone | Story Telling

The art of lifestyle photography is equal parts image and evoked feeling. Neither element is able to exist without the other. Without getting too abstract here, I endeavor the task of achieving both components. Photography is something we’ve made way too complicated in the last decade as a result of attempting to minimize our efforts but maximize our value. While I certainly don’t oppose the magic an instagram filter can do for my face from time to time, it just doesn't sit right with me. Put simply, I’m an enthusiast. Call me old school but I firmly believe that photography will always reward the process of effort.  Weeding through thousands of images to find the right ones or waiting for the light to hit your face at just the right angle is simply meeting the standards I have set for my work.  No shortcuts, just good images.
