Being photographed involves a certain degree of vulnerability. In a time where we are usually in control of how we appear to others, allowing a professional photographer to take your photo can be intimidating. When I book a portrait session, I work with you to create an image of yourself that you feel represents your essence as closely and honestly as possible. I choose tones and textures in post production that were inspired by your essence; and during the shoot, I listen to your needs, fears, hopes, and passions. In addition to my live concert photography, I offer personal portrait shoots for bands to use to promote their brand.
I love conceptual portraiture—portraits with colors and themes, portraits that are experimental, weird, and fun. My formal education in portraiture taught me that a photo should simplify, and while I value my education, I try to throw caution and tradition to the wind as often as possible. This makes room for the fantastical, the brave, and the interesting folks who inspire me every day.

Music moves me. My photographs reflect the crescendo of a song and a musician at the height of the night.
