Blah Blah Blah... Work... Travel... Life... Blah blah blah.. Commercial clients.. Blah...

I have a well curated manager approved bio and its in the links, but really what a bore.. So.. I made this one special page to just say a bunch of shit I think about photography.

It found me when I was 19 and for that I always feel so grateful. It saved me in many ways and gave me focus and purpose. I don't claim to be an amazing writer, so bare with me when I make mistakes that involve grammar or punctuation. My pre-photography education levels were pretty low, but hey here we are now!

Shooting with girls has been a paramount experience in my life. I didn't mean for it to be, but it just kept showing up and I followed the opportunities. Check out some of my favorite portraits of some of my favorite ladies... My focus has always been  on a portrait, a story, a record of a moment in time. Below is some of the work I created for Playboy over the years.

Remember a portrait is a story YOU THE ARTIST are telling.


Keep your focus on the person, the things that make them unique and special.
Trust is the alliance you create with your subject...
If you break that TRUST expect your ACCESS to be REVOKED.

It is a privilege to document people through photography. Never take your relationships for granted.
