I got started with photography in 2011. I just recently moved to Seattle from a small town in Oklahoma and i needed an art credit. My dad took several photography classes when he was in college and supported the idea. What started as a need for a credit turned into a passion as well a goal for a career in my life.
I enjoy shooting concerts more then anything. I really enjoy music and the production that goes behind every show. Being able to capture moments on stage when an artist is going really hard on his solo, or when the crowd gets really excited so the band members start smiling and playing louder and harder are really what makes the job worth while. Every band/artist wants to have a moment with their audience and be able to make the crowd happy even while its just during their set and I love to be the one to catch their vibe on camera.
My favorite place to shoot is in my apartment. Ever since I was a little kid I've wanted to live in the city and when my love for photography began I've always wanted to have my own studio space to shoot in and my own dark room, I have one of those two things now.See Portfolio & Book
In 2006, I was laid off from a call center job and bought my first camera with severance after playing with a friend of mine's first-generation Canon Rebel. I then went around and took photos of all my friends, and started taking events for my friends. Getting the opportunity to capture the story of these friends inspired me to continue to pursue photography as a freelancer.
There's nothing more exciting about photographing someone's creation. Their passions put into a product that could make or break them. I've had the great opportunity to work with some that are not going away anytime soon. Some of the best breweries, restaurants, and wineries in Washington. The passion inspires me to be more passionate about creating content that shares their product accurately.Just about as exciting as taking photos of families. Whether it be an engagement, a family, to maternity shots, it's so fun to capture moments with a family. Kids are a hoot too.
For me, there's no better place than within the restaurant, coffee shop, or brewery that has hired me. When it comes to taking photos of people outside of a studio, there are so many beautiful parks within Seattle city limits that offer a great backdrop for portraits of people and families.See Portfolio & Book
