I have always been an artist. I fell in love with the power of art at an early age and photography in highschool. When it was time to take senior portraits, I photographed my own using a tripod, self-timer and my mom's Canon 35mm camera. I was instantly hooked. After a photoshop course in University I was convinced they had taught me everything they could and I packed my Volkswagen Jetta and moved to Los Angeles. Since then I've published books with Disney, toured the world as a photographer, documented a Beatle's Birthday Party, (Ringo Starr), photographed Michelle Obama and worked with Google, Spotify and many other awesome individuals and companies.
My philosophy is "to help others helping others". I am grateful for every opportunity I have had to use my camera for good and I want to continue making a positive impact on the world through art. 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.
Behind every great man is a great woman, and Stacey is the rock in our family and the creative director behind Blackwell Studios.
