About Me

Known as Off the Beaten Path, my work has been traveled the continent and been viewed on six of the seven landmasses humans inhabit. Recently a friend told somebody that I was "severely underestimated" and I couldn't agree more.

I am a fun-loving professional photographer and film director. Always looking to create art. I have reasonable rates. I produce promotional videos for aspiring models as well.

Here are some interesting facts about me.

In 2008 I won an MTV Network Award for a music video produced with a three hundred dollar budget.

I ran a two million dollar studio for five years before taking a sabbatical to live in the Sonoran Desert outside of Tucson creating art in the sand. It was there that I met my artistic mentor, Juliet Newton, of JNN Photography. She taught me a variety of skills she utilized to repeatedly get the cover of Vogue. I am humbled by every picture she creates.

I do not crop my photos. I despise that and believe that if a photography cannot create compelling composition in camera that they shouldn't pick one up.

I use photoshop as needed and not as often as one would expect. Like with composition I am a purist and believe the photographer should be able to light an image to look like an airbrush has been taken to it and be able to choose the right lens to soften skin while keeping the eyes in focus.

I started taking pictures shortly after a friend's little sister was disfigured in a car accident. It was my goal to make her feel beautiful again. She is now a model out west.

I am in post production on a feature film about modeling. In the film there are over 25000 photographs taken and animated in a process not all that different from stop motion.

I rarely use strobes for lighting and instead opt to use LED panels. I light subjects with multiple points and use as much color as possible.

I believe art is as important as law. You can't have a society without expression.

I want to make art. Lets do!
