Strut Fitness

I was delighted when Janan, owner and trainer at Strut Fitness asked me to collaborate with her on some new portraits and shots of her beautiful gym.  Janan is not only a long time friend of mine but she was also my personal trainer when I was at the height of my roller derby career.  She has that magical combination you want in a trainer where she pushes you further than you think you can go but always with encouragement and positivity.  If you are looking to commit to becoming a better you, Janan knows just how to help you.  She makes it hurt so good!

I turned to photography at a young age as a way to manipulate the world in front of me into endless possibilities. It remained a hobby for several years until I decided to run away from the snow in Iowa and towards the rain in Portland, OR. While I was inspired by film makers and my surroundings, I had a tendency to pick apart single frames and freeze them. My memory wasn't a movie playing back in my head, it was a series of still images that created a narrative. This translates into my work through the use of lighting and props that build a scene and create a story. When I am not taking pictures, I spend my time roller skating, playing with my puppy Charlie Von Shitbird (he is very sophisticated), spending time with my snake Vans, embarking on capers with my girlfriends, messing around with special fx makeup, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. The best thing about my job is getting to meet a variety of people. No to shoots are the same and I thrive on getting to know my clients and collaborating with them to create truly unique and bold images that fit their needs. Whether it be wedding photography, family portraits, small business needs, or you simply want a kick ass original portrait. If you are looking for a creative experience that will not only boost your confidence but create a lasting memory then lets make it happen!
