17 Years of experience

A camera in my hand brings me so much joy and fills the creative whole in my heart. I picked up my first camera at 12 yrs old and have never stopped shooting. I’m a completely self taught photographer and have had the wonderful opportunity to assist some of the best Fashion & Commercial photographers in the business, most notably, Peter Yang (Rolling Stone, GQ, Vanity Fair) Tony Duran (Esquire, Elle, Vogue, Flaunt), Stephen Karlisch (Elle Decor, Town & Country, Modern Luxury). This amazing experience mixed with my own style has helped to round out who I am and how I approach each photography session.


I’m different than most photographers as I look to flip typical photography approaches upside down and use textures and the subjects own personality to drive the shoot. I never take advantage of this gift and feel my style resonates by simply thinking outside the box and giving my subject / client something special.


<<< Specializing in Modern & Upscale Portraits, Branding and Editorial Photography>>>>>


I use premium cameras and lenses (Sony, Leica & Canon) as well as portable Profoto lighting & modifiers.


Thank you for your consideration! Let's make some magic together :)

Awards, honors and recognition

My work has been featured in Los Angles Magazine, Modern Luxury, D Magazine and various other catalog fashion publications. Additionally, had to opportunity to showcase an photographic exhibition called 'Live to Contend' that showcased young amateur Texas boxers and they contend with life's challenges.

A fun fact about me

In my early days in photography I shot commercial product photography for Pier One, JC Penny and Dell Computers. It was a wonderful training ground to master lighting in all types of scenarios.
