About Me

I am a photographer and musician (male - feel free to check my "me" album to get the gist), originally from California, and currently based in NYC. I focus primarily on portrait, headshot, beauty, and editorial photography, and love capturing subtle moments with those I'm photographing.

For the most up-to-date sampling of my work, please take a look at my website ( or @pine_and_palm_ on Instagram.

He strives to make you feel as comfortable as possible and really draws out the essence of "you" in his photography. He helped me see myself in a different light and truly encompasses self-love in his approach. Super talented - I LOVED his shots.
