I can tell a story as good as your Grandad.
I was born + raised in the mountains of Nevada City, CA.
Went to UCSC + CSUC, and studied fine art.
I've lived in Chico, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Silverlake, Spain and Topanga Canyon.
Currently based out of Los Angeles, + Nevada City/Tahoe, California.
I'm most inspired by the outdoors. When I'm not shooting you can find me surfing, hiking, camping, or road tripping.
I like to think working with me feels like hanging with a friend. Candid + natural is my jam. No prom poses here, and I promise we will have a good time.
Awkward in front of the camera? Hey me too! You're in good hands and you'll be surprised how easy peasy it is for us to get a killer image.
My work is a blend of portraiture and candid with a unique, timeless reportage feel.
My work has been influenced by the many afternoons spent as a kid, reading my pa's huge collection of vintage nat geo magazines. I've also been inspired by photojournalism.
I love photographing in nature. Landscapes in the wild inspire my work greatly, and shooting in natural light is my preference.
Lover of old and new, I work with both analog + digital formats. Might even pull out my polaroid camera for you.
Shoot me a message here and we can discuss rates, availability + special packages for film and destination weddings ( I like to travel and you better believe I have special rates for locations on my bucket list).
I'm always a fan of meeting in real life ( al fresco, for now). If you're around my neighborhood ( currently : Nevada City), let's grab coffee and have some real, old fashioned facetime.
If you can't meet IRL, complimentary consultations are available Monday - Friday via call or facetime .
