I am an independent Los Angeles-based lifestyle and portrait photographer. For me, photography is more than just taking pictures. It’s capturing the expression of emotion in the moment. Model photography allows me to be creative through the selection of the location, wardrobe, and overall theme. It’s a great experience when model and photographer really connect and share the same vision. All of the planning and effort pays off and the results are remarkable.
My tendency has always been toward being an artist. In my childhood, I drew pictures to illustrate stories and took still life drawing classes. However, I also have a technology aptitude so the art and science of photography comes naturally to me.
Home entertainment and the television industry captivated me from an early age. Video technology and the content itself has a special place in my heart. Some of my favorite productions are gritty, realistic procedurals that use color, lighting, and music to set the mood.
The USC School of Cinematic Arts really helped me gain an appreciation for the business side of the industry. I developed my skills of team work, time management, and critical thinking. It was a valuable learning experience that allowed me to gain the intuition it takes to be successful in work and life.
I continue my education through photography workshops. My goal is to help rising talent succeed by providing high quality photographs. I take my work seriously, but I don’t take myself too seriously. I bring a fun, optimistic, and professional demeanor to all of my photo shoots. Feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with like-minded, creative personalities!
