You may already be familiar with me. I'm the guy running around the party snapping photos. The guy with the GoPro set up going for hikes. The guy who see's life differently and has slowly mastered art of capturing it. I received my first camera for Christmas at the age of 11. At the time it was a cruel passion, in which I took photos and grew impatient waiting to develop them. With the way technology has developed, and equipment has improved, there is no longer the agony of waiting on negatives, but rather excitement and limitless possibilities. Having ideas, understanding light, tones and temperature was half the battle. Finding the time and willingness to learn was the other. I've grown and developed a lot as an artist since my first camera, now shooting with a Canon full digital and using some of the best lighting techniques available. I recently got into videography as well, utilizing go pros on my own adventures. It is amazing what you can capture when the stage is set correctly. My passion stems from the reactions I get from my clients. Whether it's the next day/month/or year, the fact that they get to revisit a moment in their life, and relive it, it such a pleasure. In day to day life people lose sight of how beautiful everything truly is. Sometimes all you need is to look through a fresh pair of eyes, or the right size lens, to be reminded. Allow me to show you what I see, when I look around at this place we call Earth. From live events to stills, ads and weddings I can do it all and have the photos to prove it.
