agency work i work in portland and los angeles photographing, coaching, and marketing models and athletic talent i have a degree in visual communications and have worked in varying capacities with companies such as Nike, Adidas, L.L. Bean, Columbia Sportswear, and REI. i photograph talent looking to attract work in the catalog, outdoor, sports, & lifestyle industries. i also work with other photographers and catalog companies as an art director and modeling coach.
working with people the opening quote to my website sums up my approach to photographing people. we all have our own individual beauty that makes us who we are. my philosophy when photographing is to help each person feel comfortable with me and with themselves. i believe a beautiful portrait begins on the inside.
documentary what i have received volunteering far outweighs that which I have given. i hope that in my attempts to help that s have shed some kind of light on certain causes, concerns, people or condiitions that may have otherwise gone unrecognized. i am humbled by those who allow me to photograph them and grateful for all that they teach me about life and being human.
