ME

I was grew up in rural Southern Orange County in the days when it was really filled with oranges. My brothers and I had ultimate freedom. We filled our time with everything outdoors, orange fights, BB gun wars, horseback riding, surfing, skiing, skateboarding and lots of soccer.

Photography captured me after high-school while traveling thru Europe. It became my sole focus traveling our National Parks working on a Geology degree. I got so obsessed I changed majors and schools, graduating from Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara with a BA in photography.

Even in those early days I liked to set up pictures to be just right, move this, change that, stand here, add little extra lighting. I wanted to capture the perfect moment and if the moment wasn’t there I created it. I still do, I don’t take snap shots I like to create my scene and story. Drives my daughters crazy on vacation the amount of pictures I’ll take or how often I make them move around till they are in the sweet spot.

I enjoy all kinds of work and work with all kinds of companies big and small. Every photoshoot comes with it’s unique set of challenges and meeting those challenges never gets old.

I love working in the controlled studio environment but over the past few years I have been working less in studio and more on locations, everywhere from beaches to the mountains and everyplace in between.

I still live in South Orange County with my wife Liz and our twin daughters. Orange County is not quite the wide open space that I grew up in but it is still a great place and an convenient location to have as my home base. When I’m not shooting I surf and ski a lot, play a little soccer and even break out a skateboard once and awhile.
