Hello and Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in my work.

Over the past ten years, I have been expressing myself through photography, both as a job and as a passion. Starting out, photography was a way for me to make memories with friends and family. I have been fortunate in my life to travel to some of the most breathtaking locations around the world. I am equally fortunate to be able to share those places with you now.

Professionally, my aim in creating images is the same as it is for my personal life. I want to show the subject in the best light possible. I strive to provoke the viewer to want to share in the experience of that subject.


“My hope is that my images create an emotional reaction. It’s not just about simply showing you pictures, I want to convey, express and share the emotions frozen in the frame.”


Personally, I love the interactions between myself and my subjects as much as actually creating photographs. Whether I’m shooting people for fun, or I’m out in nature, I try to connect with my environment as much as possible. All of these interactions are the conduit to convey emotion in my photographs.




Adventure Photography

From the beginning of my photographic journey, adventure has been at the heart of my passion. it is through my own personal experiences in nature that I DEVELOPED My PHILOSOPHY for working with outdoor brands, athletes or passionate individuals. I look for the moments that seem effortless and step back and let the landscape be the star.

Living in Santa Cruz, CA. swimwear photography quickly became a fun and exciting avenue of The fashion INDUSTRY. I have been fortunate to work with many companies and models to create a wide range of unique and eye CATCHING images.



These days, having a strong headshot is not just for actors, models, and business executives. It is now considered the standard practice to attach a headshot with a resumé or bio page for your website.

These portraits are designed to show the viewer a glimpse into who you are. they can take on any number of styles, from fun to serious business.





Q: Where are you located and do you travel for jobs?

A: I am based in Santa Cruz CA and, yes! I often travel to other cities, states, and even countries to complete projects for clients. No matter where you are I am able and happy to travel when the project requires it.

Q: Can I still order your landscape prints?

A: Yes. I am currently transitioning to a new hosting platform for print sales. In the meantime all of my landscapes are on my Instagram feed. (Located below) you can email or DM if you’re interested in a print.

Q: What gear do you use?

A: Well, I have gear from many different manufactures but the short answer is Canon. I use a Canon 5D Mark IV and Mark iii backup as well as a 1DX Mark ii (which is currently dead in my storage closet) multiple lenses but my main workhorses are the 24-70mm 2.8 L, 70-200mm 2.8 L, 50mm 1.4.
