About Me

I shoot fashion, lifestyle, weddings, anything with personality and emotion.  My inspirations: Anthropologie catalogs, historically-influenced fashion, vintage finds, Japanese streetwear, simple modern design... I am open to TF when shooting for publications, and when working with "really, really ridiculously good looking" people  wink For TF shoots, I generally expect a signed model release. If you aren't willing to sign one, please let me know in advance.

I'm also a model--have been on MM for several years and am very reliable.  Feel free to check out my modeling page for references, or to see what I look like:
