Upcoming Show:

Last week I got word that I was a finalist in the Ripe Art Gallery "What is a Portrait" competition, juried and curated by Ruben Natal-San Miguel. While I didn't go on to win the competition, it is an amazing honor to be sending my three submissions off to New York to be included in the show alongside other inspiring photographers like Amy ElkinsNan GoldinRyan McGinley, and Jack Pierson.

Prints Available:

Since getting back from my tour across the county, I'm slowly adding new images to my shop. With the holidays upon us I am offering 30% off all print, woodblocks, and framed images through December 7th just use the code HOLIDAY30.


Awkward Family Photos:

I also started a fun new tradition of shooting Awkward Family Photos. Images guaranteed to stay on the fridge of friends and family until we can top it next year. I don't think I have laughed so much during a shoot as I did during these. By the way, chickens have taken the place of cats as least cooperative animals to try and photograph.


Recently on Instagram:

I participated in the #blackandwhitephotochallenge. I took one B&W image a day for five days. If you don't already follow me, click here to change that! It is my favorite social media platform for sharing my work.


Drive-In Theatre Book Update:

Last but not least! I am still in the midst of narrowing down and editing photographs I took on my 65 day road trip this past summer. In the process of narrowing these down, I have caught a creative bug again and will be battling the rain in the near future to shoot a handful of images that I believe will really complete the story I want to tell. There is still a long road ahead but I am excited about the journey and will keep everyone updated as I progress. Until then, here is a recent image I have been working on.

Portland, OR, United States of America

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!
