I was gifted my first "real" camera when I was 16. I started selling images the next year to the football players, cheerleaders, and band members at my high school. I consider that my start.
I got my formal education at the University of Alabama where I received an interdisciplinary degree in Photojournalism, Art Photography, Creative Writing, and Cultural Studies. I was and have always been curious about the story, which is a nice way of saying- I ask a lot of questions.
Informally, my skills have been learned through the School of Life, which is where the real education took place. I've lived on both coasts and a lot of places in-between, and through all of that I've explored pretty much every kind of photography you can think of, but what I've always come back to is the photos that tell a story.
My goal when shooting is to always show a scene or moment in an authentic and beautiful way. I naturally see beauty in everyone and everything, so what comes easily for me is what I aim to show others.
I primarily focus on editorial & headshot work now, creating content for people, businesses, and brands, but my favorite focus is documentary work (behind the scenes & moments that typically go unnoticed).
Please email me for bookings & commissions, and check out my store to purchase prints. Thanks for your interest in my work.
