A little about me. . .
My drive as a photographer is to capture the essence of a scene, a moment, a person, using light and color to tell the story. I strive to bring out the best of who, or what, is on the other side of my camera. Sometimes this is achieved through my guidance and direction, other times through quiet observation. Over the years I have learned how best to navigate each setting, and I'm transparent about what role I can play in each of my clients' photography sessions or events. Photography is all I do. It is my profession and my passion. It is not my side hustle or something I do for fun to make extra money. I see each shoot as an opportunity to provide someone, or, more often, many people, with the ability to see something unique, relive a moment, or hold on to a feeling. This takes a keen eye, the mastery of one's tools, and an ability to connect with one's subject. I have these goals in mind whenever I take on any new client: that I can exceed expectations in the final product, that the experience of working with me will be a positive one, and that something special will be created. My camera and I can't do it all, but we intend to crush what we can do.
I love capturing moments and scenes in a way no one has before, using natural light and casual interaction with the environment. I’ve curated a toolbox of gear over the years that provides a unique and high quality way to achieve this. It fuels my passion, and adds a unique quality to my photography. Most recently, I have begun exploring light painting and the use of off camera flash to supplement day and night time portraits.
If you live in the greater Austin area and would like me to capture an upcoming moment using my perspective, don't hesitate to reach out. I will only accept jobs that would be a good fit for all parties involved. Also, I am willing to travel depending upon the opportunity.
