About Me

I’m a recently published (woo!) Bay Area based photographer specializing in abstract model photography.
My core style is set in random hotel rooms where tacky furniture become supporting actors and the processed color palettes sometimes reflect the muted look of 50's newspaper cigarette ads. It’s not uncommon for me to be seen shooting through a handheld, unmounted lens, inviting in stray light and crushing the depth of focus, or sporting a giant, brass, rail-mounted projector lens for that sweet CinemaScope feel.

My background is pretty simple - Twenty years ago I was a typical teenager growing up in Las Vegas, land of the implied nude. For me, a pocketed film camera was just as important to have on my person 24/7 as the keys to my getaway Volkswagen were. In these years I amassed an impressive collection of prints ranging from random parking lot fender benders to flirty pictures of girlfriends, the latter I’m assuming had the greater influence on my current work.

My day job focuses on creating informative content and reviews in the games industry. I aim to do the same in photography by shooting regularly for my Patreon and use the content as a means to create tutorials and behind-the-scenes breakdowns of the techniques I use both during the shoot and afterwards in post. I also hold monthly live editing sessions and occasionally drop a smaller compositing timelapses or quick tutorial video.
