Photography isn’t just a hobby or a side hustle for me, it’s my life.
I have been professionally shooting for over 8 years across the United States, currently living in Brooklyn NYC as a full-time freelance photographer.
My early training began in the age of analog, using manual 35mm film cameras and learning traditional darkroom techniques to develop film and create prints. I continued my education obtaining degrees in both Cinematography and Visual Communications.
When digital cameras came into prominence I was gifted with my first ‘point and shoot’, happily using several models of those to take casual snapshots for many years. I eventually decided to get serious in improving my skills and images, and I acquired my first entry-level DSLR. Using that to practice shooting portraits and events for friends and family, it finally occurred to me that maybe this could be more than just an enjoyable interest. I then began investing in professional level equipment, and went back to school to get the additional training necessary to make the jump from passion to profession.
Before that (and overlapping with), I spent most of my occupational life in the tech world largely in systems administration, network architecture, and web developing. I eventually began working as an in-house/staff photographer for various companies, then after a few years I decided to take ‘the big leap’ and transitioned from being an employee to a full-time freelancer, and I have never looked back!
Along with my private clients, I also work with several creative agencies who specialize in pairing brands with the right talent for their photography projects. I also shoot stock photos for Getty, Adobe, (and other platforms), you can also find my artwork in 90 of the rooms of the the Moxy Hotel in Columbus, Ohio!
