I am a 22 year visionary photographer and digital film director from the Northwest Suburbs of Illinois, and Chicagoland area.
I love to paint my pictures with a sense of eclectic romanticism and whimsy. My background in painting, film, and music shape my creative thought process to create images like a painter would: subject, content, composition, colors, lighting, and perspective.
I do not confine myself to studio photography: the outside world is my oyster. I have built quite a diverse, visually stimulating portfolio by shooting outdoors and on location.
I believe that every shoot is different, however, they all retain a similar sensibility and perspective. I love to create these fantasy worlds, where the women are powerful, sensual, and vulnerable. The men and women I photograph, in general, range from being ethereal, to dark & sentient; therefore I pose them in a manner that exudes strength, vulnerability, and allure. I believe that allure is a major essence in my photography.
