About Me

I am from California and have spent the last several years living in the Washington, D.C. area, where I developed my passion for photography.  Residing here in the Mid-Atlantic region has afforded the opportunity to choose from a nearly unlimited number of inspirational settings.  Ideal for its rich coastal textures, minimalist landscapes, and otherworldly sand dunes, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and the surrounding area is my favorite nearby location to visit and shoot. And I will never run out of photography subjects in Washington, D.C. and nearby Philadelphia, both American treasure cities.

I began working with models in the last couple of years and actually enjoy the creative process of working with people more rewarding than anything else I have done. I focus on black and white, and continue to want to push my creative and technical envelope. I am mainly inspired by the vintage, BW fashion editorial images from the 80's, 90's and early 2000's, and you'll see that influence in my work. Check out my site or Instagram for more examples of my work, as I don't post a lot here due to the ridiculous resolution requirements.
