It's funny talking about yourself.. but I suppose that line was already crossed when I created a personal website. Doh!
I guess things really started when I decided to spend teenage weekends playing on Microsoft Paint. Yup, that Paint. Needless to say, once the technology became more helpful and available, my interest was peaked!
Fast forward to 2001, where I would spend my college weekends playing on Photoshop! Ha. Kidding…. mostly. I studied Visual Communication Technology at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, graduating in 2006. Ay Ziggy Zoomba! Since then, I have been shooting weddings and portraits under my own brand. I love having a job that allows me to explore my creativity, and presents a different challenge every time. I suppose it's a drive I've always had. The cliché that every photograph has a story worth telling actually has a lot of truth in it, no matter how tiny the moment. There are all kinds of funny, quirky, and moving moments that are gone in a second, but remembered forever in a photograph. It's truly a privilege to be asked to photograph you or your event.
When I sign up for a project, you get more than my camera. You get me! Heart, soul, dry humor, and all. I love photographing people wild about each other and life. I show up earlier than you think, and usually end up being one of the last people to leave. The result is work I’m proud of.
On the other side of that world are my on-going side projects, ranging from water to mountains from both sides of the country. Ever since I was a kid, I've just loved the water. Thankfully, I've been fortunate enough to live in Savannah, GA, near the water of Lake Erie, OH, and now off the coast of Olympic National Park. Most of my photographs are taken through a neutral density filter, giving each one it's own little challenge and time frame. If I'm able to take a part of you out with me in spirit, then I've accomplished my goal. I’m also known to love travelling into the mountains.
My friends may say I have an obsession for cats, probably listen to music from the 90's too much, and have a love for science fiction novels and films… just to name a few things about me.
