I don't take pictures, I CREATE pictures.
My Story: At the ripe age of 19, I left the cold winters of Iowa for the grey skies of Portland, Oregon. I spent several years traveling, playing roller derby, and honing my unique photography style. In 2012, I graduated Cum Laude with a BFA in Photography from Pacific Northwest College of Art, where I mentored under the very talented Holly Andres.
With a little push from life in the right direction, I left my day job just three months after graduation and have been doing photography full-time ever since. My commercial, wedding, and personal work have graced magazines and galleries around the world.
In 2014, I launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to travel the country and photograph existing and abandoned drive-in theatres. This lead to a partnership with Honda Motor Company as part of their Project Drive-In Campaign. In 2015 the images from this adventure were compiled into my first coffee table book.
When I am not taking pictures I am cuddling my adorable dog, Charlie Von Shitbird, hiking, swimming, roller skating, remodeling my house, soaking up quality time with my favorite people, or planning my next tropical vacation.
My Style: I love bold, dark images, with pops of color and beautiful highlights. Light is everything and I don't wait for it to naturally happen, I make it happen! Through the power of artificial light, I transform scenes to give the dramatic look and feel they deserve.
