I have always considered myself an artist, from a very young age. I fell in love with the power of photography early in highschool. When it was time to take senior portraits, I took my own using a tripod and self-timer on my mom's Canon 35mm camera. I was hooked. My girlfriend's parents saw my images and paid me to take hers. Her friends saw hers, and paid me to take theirs. In college, my roommate got married and I bartered wedding photography to upgrade my camera gear. Since then I've published books, photographed a Beatle (Ringo Starr), Michelle Obama and worked with Google, Spotify and more.
My philosophy is "to help others helping others". I am grateful for every opportunity I have had to use my camera - I want to only use it for good. Creating content for those who are making a positive social impact in the world is my jam. If I can help you, help others, it's a win win.
