My journey to becoming a photographer all started in New York City when I saw a black and white photo of two alpinists walking passed a glacier near Mount Everest. I was awestruck, not only by its beauty but by its ruggedness and composition. As it turns out the photo was taken by the world-renowned photographer Jimmy Chin. I knew at that moment what I needed to do and my life would never be the same. I spent the next ten years devoting every moment to mastering the art of photography.
I am self-taught and have poured much of my time into the technology that is shaping the future of this industry. I have been able to capitalize on the fact that the hardware is getting smaller, lighter, and more accessible; everything from pocket-sized drones, to medium format cameras that fit in the palm of your hand.
This fast and light focus has helped me set myself apart; allowing me to deliver much more value to my clients with an almost immediate turnaround time on finished media.
“The rules on what is possible and impossible in the arts were made by people who had not tested the bounds of the possible by going beyond them.”
― Neil Gaiman
Awards, honors and recognition
I have yet to try to win any awards, as my work is more about my clients and less about me as an artist. That being said I do want to start submitting my work for contests as It would be amazing to win an award like the prestigious "Redbull illume" award.
A fun fact about me
I was a full time model for ten years, which enables me to help my subjects become more comfortable in front of camera. I don't know anyone who LOVES having their photos taken and the ability to connect with someone is such a valuable skill to have. My background is more commercially focused and much of my work comes from my tourism clients, but that same polished "candid" style translates well to dynamic portraits as well as family photos.
