Brief Summary


   I create photographic portraiture of people that engages the viewer into exploring an underlining narrative that is created about the subject matter. Through the use of strong dramatic elicited lighting, strong compositional skills, and the ability to communicate and make my subjects feel at ease.

  I create work that is used by a variety of different clients from graphic designers, editorial magazines, and collateral capability and positioning pieces for corporations.

   My talents go beyond just photographing people but also studio, tabletop architectural environments and editorial type assignments.
