You made it to the photography section! I have been drawn to photography for a very long time, but I only recently started to treat it more as a form of creative expression and meditative practice.
Whithin this page you will find a love for composition, natural light, and human emotion. With that in mind, I've broken up this page into a collection of photos that represent automobiles, events, people, and products.
If you have interesting projects, ideas, or are curious about hiring me for a project please reach out and connect.
Enjoy the art!
As a child I was nearly always found with a HotWheels car in hand. As I grew up, that love of cars didn't change much, the metal just got bigger and more expensive.
When I shoot cars I'm looking to capture the emotion just desperately wanting to claw it's way out of each vehicle. I feel like I am not just shooting a car, but all the collective energy that went into making it unique. That passion can come from both the original manufacturer as well as the owner truly making their vehicle their own.
There is just something fun about shooting an event. People are gathering with energy, anticipation, and excitement. You can feel it as you move about the space.
I love the feeling I typically get around 40 minutes into shooting an event. That's when the vibe of everyone starts to gel together and the photos start to take on a personally that are only available for that brief moment in time. The photos below were all captured from that flow.
I love photographing people, both professionals and unprofessionals, old friends and new acquaintances. Hearing their story. Watching them open up to the camera.
An ideal shoot for me is a fun location where conversation can take place while we make use of the best natural light. We end up cultivating a fun experience with visual memoirs for later.
There's a subtlety that I enjoy capturing for product photography. Ideally there's freedom to get the images out in the field where the objects are being used purposefully.
I have worked for a number of years in experience design and have gained an appreciation for the thought, effort, and collective energy of all those involved in creating what I am photographing.
I appreciate the creative photographic world that instagram has created. Through it I have been fortunate to make friends before meeting in person, interact with other photographers I admire, and encourage more to explore their own take on creating artwork with rays of light.
