Photography came naturally to me, as a kid, I started out with the family camcorder making movies on our farm. We made some really great stuff as kids, as years went on, I got more into photography as well. Capturing the mood and creating a cinematic composition was a big thing for me. After moving to LA in 2010, I really started doing more work, shooting for artists, music videos, had my first fashion spread published and more. My work was built on natural light, that delves back into my childhood when I had limited equipment and over 100 acres of farmland to shoot whatever I wanted. Read More>>

I think I started by watching movies. Paying close attention to framing and storytelling through cinematography. Relentlessly rewatching movies wasn’t for study, It was for fun. I’ve always taken note of what worked and what didn’t. If something the film editor did to take me out of the experience, it was mentally noted as how not to execute a plan. By the time I got to hold a camera, I was sixteen. Read More>>

Maybe it was slight hyperactivity in my occipital cortex from an early age, maybe an influx of visual stimuli and positive reinforcement, either way- I’ve been fascinated with visual imagery my whole life. Definitely past the point of passion, perhaps on par with the point of addiction, I ruthlessly pursued and developed skills in the form of drawing, painting, and sculpting, year after year.  Read More>>
