Light chaser and lover of...
Leica and Hasselblad
all things beautiful and poetic
people, landscape, the world . . . laughter
I am a portrait, travel and fashion photographer who captures beauty in an evocative and lyrical way. There is a sensitivity to my imagery that captures the essence of the individual in their environment. My approach combines fine art with commercial to create a more authentic experience.
I enjoy working with all types of people, channeling creative energy into the production of stunning visuals. My work encompasses portraiture, fashion, branding projects, commercial shoots for international companies, as well as months-long humanitarian NGO collaborations. I have shot throughout the U.S. as well in Mexico, South America, Europe and Asia, including a six-month project in Nepal and India documenting young girls rescued from the brothels of India.
My personal aesthetic tends toward soulful nostalgia but with my wide-ranging experience working for many years as a magazine staff photographer and photo editor, I take a pragmatic, albeit creative approach to any project that prioritizes my client’s desired results and budget.
