Biography

Bio

My passion for photography began when I was 17 years of age as I was studying graphic design in Atlanta.  I changed course after getting a bargain on an old Ricoh Singlex II from my supervisor at RadioShack.  I switched my studies to photography at a tech school in Charleston and became obsessed with the dark room, headphones glued to my ears, blasting dark music to match.  I was captivated by the work of Jerry Uelsmann, Cindy Sherman, Richard Avedon, Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe and many more.  I quickly began assisting other commercial and editorial photographers, learning more and more about the trade.  I traveled all over North America with various shooters, absorbing invaluable knowledge, knowing one day I was to be behind the lens as they were.  I shot weddings, babies, families, absurd events, anything to keep me enveloped in photography.  I slaved away in a lighting and grip rental shop, I worked in theatrical and event lighting, I was on electric crew in television shows, and I never stopped learning.  I was a lion on the prowl for mastery. 

 

I bring all of this knowledge and experience to each and every job for each and every one of my clients today.  My passion for this art grows infinitely as I create with all of you amazing people.
