I fell in love with photography when I lived in Lake Tahoe. Shooting landscapes led me down a path to photographing snowboarding for a local snowboard company. When I moved to DC, I became interested in event photography and trained under several master photographers and began to develop my skills and style.
I enjoy documenting events the most. Every day is something different and forces me to be a problem solver in order to deliver to my clients, the best possible final product.
I love being able to use the beautiful backdrops of the Pacific Northwest to create high quality and dynamic images.See Portfolio & Book
As a teenager, photography was a way for me to help make sense of the world around me. Once in college I started taking photography classes and learned to use a darkroom. During this time I became enthralled by photography's transportive and narrative potential. At the turn of the century I was an early adopter of digital workflow due to its amazing flexibility and efficiency.
I most enjoy any assignment that exposes me to something I've never seen before. Photography to me is a way to better understand people and to help others increase their understanding as well. There are so many different ways to live, the camera is a great way to explore these possibilities.
Portland has many great settings for photography. One of my favorites is Cathedral Park under the St. Johns Bridge. Other great spots include Waterfront Park downtown and the Eastside Esplanade. Close-in Southeast Portland offers great industrial backgrounds.See Portfolio & Book
