About Me

I shoot fashion, lifestyle, weddings, anything with personality and emotion.  My inspirations: Anthropologie catalogs, historically-influenced fashion, vintage finds, Japanese streetwear, simple modern design... I am open to TF when shooting for publications, and when working with "really, really ridiculously good looking" people  wink For TF shoots, I generally expect a signed model release. If you aren't willing to sign one, please let me know in advance.
