I am a Seattle based commercial and wedding photographer. Things I love include the Northwestern coast, my enormous cats Fatty and Onyx, international gallivanting and the complexions of my homeland in rural Nevada. Although I shoot film on a variety of bodies, nothing makes me blush quite like the love I have for my Leica M3. I’m curious. I like to turn rocks. I like to find things. And if I’m lucky enough to find something I hope to simply learn about it, take a photo and leave it as I found it. Photography for me is about capturing the charming subtlety and nuance that surrounds an experience. An endless pursuit of light driven by admiration. I shoot weddings because I love the challenge and I love reminding people how beautiful their wedding day was. My goal is simple: to deliver photographs that move you on an emotional level and capture moments that may have gone unnoticed; maximum effort.
• I shoot film as much as I can on a variety of bodies, my Leica M3 is hands down my favorite.
• I have an obsession with cats, but especially Fatty and Onyx!
• I love meeting fellow photographers from around the world! Let’s connect on social media and if you find yourself in Seattle I’ll show you a few great spots.
• I am a recent transplant to Seattle from the quaint town of Ely, Nevada.

Do you travel for shoots?
Absolutely! Traveling is one of my favorite things in this world. I currently operate out of the greater Seattle area. I have been fortunate enough to travel to Minneapolis, Orlando, Reno, Las Vegas, & Hawaii for wedding assignments. I do however require airfare, lodging and usually a rental car.
What Camera do you use?
My primary camera is a Canon 5D markiii (of course I have a backup 5D markii) and a handful of lenses. I shoot a bit of film on the side where my primary cameras are a Hasselblad 500CM and a Leica M3.
Do you backup your data?
YES YES YES! I’ve always said, “if your data doesn’t exist in 3 places it doesn’t exist at all!” I keep a mirrored working drive on my desk as well as an offsite backup in case of an emergency. After 3 years, I archive my client work on drives in two separate locations. Although I suggest you backup your images as soon as they are delivered.
