Portraits: A window to the soul

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” — Ansel Adams

I'll tell the story of your personality, your family, your maternity.


Events: Tell your story

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

I want to find the small moments along with those epic TIMES of your corporate, performance, or private event.  Every photo is a scene for that bigger story -- see yours unfolding, photo by photo.

Production: Be stills

“Taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing Oreo cookies.” — Diane Arbus

Let me help you document your project with production stills.  As a producer, I'm privileged to be behind the scenes on some really amazing indie projects.  I love being on set because it gives me access to everything going on.  I'll photograph your production with the mind of a filmmaker.  

Travel: Wander the world

“The photographer is an armed version of the solitary walker reconnoitering, stalking, cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes. Adept of the joys of watching, connoisseur of empathy, the flâneur finds the world 'picturesque.” — Susan Sontag

I've always loved traveling.  There are always stories to be heard and stories to live, and there is always the beautiful to be discovered in every country, city, face.  Here are a few highlights of my travels throughout the United States, Dominican Republic,Italy, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Spain, Thailand, Kenya, Mexico, and Chile.
