• about

    I am a portrait photographer who likes to keep it simple. I have never been a fan of imagery that is overly stylized or heavily glossed over and airbrushed. My goal is to capture the essence of a subject sans the bells and whistles, and the moments I create with my subjects are more than just "smile for the camera." My work has been published and exhibited in cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and Berlin. I have also photographed and published my own zine, "Handbook," which has been distributed here in the United States as well as internationally. I have a distinct style and vision, and I always try to create something visually interesting that hopefully evokes a positive reaction from whoever may view it.

    If you are interested in a portrait session please contact me for rates and information. Hope to hear from you. Thanks!
