Photographer

How did you get started with photography

I began my photographic journey while studying abroad in Amsterdam in 2008. I had purchased my first dSLR for the trip and found myself behind the viewfinder most of the time instead of practicing music (the reason I was there).

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting new people and forming a bond between me and my subjects, even if it's only for a brief time. It's challenging to photograph people you don't know in a way that makes your subject look honest and true. There's a level of trust that must be achieved before this can happen, and I enjoy creating that relationship. That's what I strive to do with my portraits and whenever photographing people.

What are some of your favorite places in San Francisco to take photographs?

There are so many great places in San Francisco to photograph. Some of my favorites include: Marshall's Beach, Crissy Field, Land's End, Golden Gate Park, North Beach, Fort Mason, and many other parks and neighborhoods that dot the SF landscape.
