I am a commercial and portrait photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia. I photograph many different subjects, but I most enjoy making photographs that have a purpose, that don't go to die on a hard drive somewhere. I want my photographs to cause change, sell a product, or promote an individual. I want the viewer to step back, take a breath, and think. So often, our fast-paced world does not allow time for thinking. Our actions are based on emotion, quick reactions, even to a post or a tweet, which are quickly lost in the constant flood of content. I seek to break through that rising tide with images that are bold and honest.
For these reasons, I love working with other people and companies that have the same goal to bring something different to the table. But I am a photographer, not a writer. I invite you to take a look at my work on this site and see if my vision can help you with your goals.
Photography keeps me going, makes me tick, turns living into life. This site reflects a small measure of that joy, and if you've simply stumbled upon me or here looking for a photographer, I hope you enjoy the time you spend here.
