I'm a freelance photographer currently based in the Midwest. Whether it's working in studio or on location, I like to give a voice, and tell a story to things I photograph.
My main interests are food, product, and editorial.
My interest in photography started in high school, when I took my first photo class, I was totally hooked. I saved up my money, bought an old darkroom, and set it up in the basement of my parent's house.
Before photography, I was into painting. Photography appealed to me because it was so immediate. Capturing images, developing, and printing, no waiting for paint to dry.
I earned my BFA from UW Milwaukee, during that time I started assisting photographers in Milwaukee and Chicago. This lead to working with more photographers, and photo studios. Carrying out all aspects of production work, and traveling around the country for jobs.
I've done work for both print, and web campaigns. Working directly with large and small businesses. As well as ad agencies, and magazines.
Always available for travel, and any kind of challenge.
