I have always loved telling stories. Once I discovered that photography could help me portray my stories, it was a game changer. I love getting to go on adventures, telling my stories, and inspiring people to get out on their own. I also love using photo to portray emotions that don't get shared very often in our day to day lives. It only makes sense that I use my story telling abilities to help others who can't quite tell their stories on their own. Being able to show others photos from moments they lives through, be it climbing or life events, fills me with joy.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have photographed just about everything. I've photographed families, weddings, products, you name it. I put my own unique style into my images by using strong lighting and color. When photographing people, I like to get to know them beforehand to insure that I'm telling the right story with my images.
