I am a creative being, through and through. I credit my exposure in this industry to my parents, who are both creative directors. I grew up in photo studios working with models, stylists and other photographers, always aspiring to be a part of that world! Priding myself in being midwest raised and California washed- shortly after starting my own photography business in high school in Madison, WI, I moved to California. Seeking a school with an underwater program, I attended and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts for Photography at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, CA. With water in my veins, I derive my inspirations from fashion, traveling and scuba diving. Now located in Los Angeles or found on the beaches of the world, I am a strong believer that travel is the only thing you can buy that will make you richer.
Meeting and working with new brands, models and companies. I think photography is a form of physcology in many ways, you grow and learn with the people you photograph.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I typically try to tie my love for fashion and lifestyle together, whenever possible. I recently also started my own swimwear brand, whom I am the photographer for. My shoots are different than others, in that instead of producing a shoot and casting talent, I collaborate with the talent in what the shoot is going to be.
