I am a South Florida-based commercial and fashion photographer, specializing in location-based advertising, marketing, public relations and editorial photography. My work features vibrant splashes of color, as well as eye-catching geometric compositions. I am drawn to the elegant, mysterious, sensual and rebellious. Clients include advertising and public relations agencies, magazines, consumer brands and models/actors.
My photography has been influenced by a life of artistic endeavors. In the 1990s, I worked in marketing and promotion for Atlantic Records, promoting acts like Stone Temple Pilots, Collective Soul, Tori Amos, Juliana Hatfield and Hootie & the Blowfish. I am also an artist and self-taught painter. A decade studying figure drawing has helped me to develop an eye for photography.
A guiding philosophy to my work: Create a fun, friendly and professional environment and let creativity flourish. I prefer shooting on location in urban or natural spaces, although have done plenty of studio work as well. Through effective planning and clear direction, I create imagery that tells a unique story. I have photographed Miss Universe, a swimsuit calendar for the NHL Florida Panthers, and a United States Presidential Candidate. My photos have appeared on the cover of Fort Lauderdale Magazine, in Miami New Times, and local publications including THINK magazine and Muses & Visionaries.
I enjoy creating something from nothing, and contributing creative work to the world that inspires others. Professionally, photography allows for a flexible lifestyle that allows me to create the life I want to live. I work on my terms, set my own hours and take lunch breaks when I want to without having to answer to anyone except my clients.
