I’ve been a visual storyteller for over 20 years. I specialize in compelling portraiture, capturing human moments behind the scenes and illustrative image making. My approach blends technical mastery, fine art sensibilities, and a joyful imagination.
Another factor that makes my work distinct is a background in cinematography, coupled with directing techniques gleaned as an award winning filmmaker. My framing is naturally cinematic, and narratively rich. As a director I am trained to help actors eliminate tension, and deliver believable performances. I can use these same techniques to help you capture the effortless smile, mischievous glint or sultry mystique needed to make your portrait stand out.
My background includes more than a decade as a graphic designer, so I understand the demands placed on an image destined for high end publication, the web or anything in-between. I am also an award winning multimedia producer and cinematographer, and would be happy to round out the camera department on your next production.
