I love shooting events and am passionate about it. My photojournalism background gives me the skill of knowing how to document events. I know how to tell a story by showing details, wide shots, and the attendees participating in the event and interacting with each other. Whether it's a company's yearly conference, a business seminar, an award ceremony, or even a birthday party or wedding, you can count on my pictures telling the story of your event.
I am also a portrait photographer that loves working with clients to make fantastic pictures. I create portraits of subjects that bring out what makes them unique and is a testament to what they do. This involves getting to know my subject and shooting them in their environment or creating an environment that communicates to the viewer what they do and who they are. I carry out this process whether I do a simple headshot, or a more extensive photo shoot. I believe a photo shoot is a collaboration between me and the client. They are able to view the images during the shooting process and we don't wrap up the shoot until I am certain they are satisfied with the images we shot. I would HATE to be that photographer who took a bad picture of you, so I make sure you don't leave the photo session until you are happy with the images!
I lived in Asia for ten years working as a travel photographer and photojournalist. After moving back to the United States, I lived in New York working as an editorial photographer. I am now based in Nashville but I love leaving town every once in a while for photo assignments!
In addition to being a professional photographer, I am also a digital artist working with imaging and video. I teach photography at the college level, and also conduct travel photography seminars in different countries. Find out about my latest travel photography class here.

When I’m not shooting, I’m DJing, riding my bike, cooking, or trying to find the nearest beach.
