The ambition that drove my course work in general photography, photojournalism, and digital post processing, was wrapping myself up in the technical ins ands outs of the creation of a digital photo and to apply it preserve a moment and it's story.
Having had photos published in the newspaper, and having had done event photography throughout my undergraduate degree and graduate school- including a three year contract with the area's most popular night club, I feel my style can be summed up as sincere, genuine, and above all- honest.
However, as a photographer with a day job, I am allowed to deliver a quality product without the prohibitive price tag of larger operations. You shouldn't have to sacrifice other parts of your event to assure that you will have a quality product to remember it by, and that's why I'm here. It's a more intimate experience to be the one fortunate enough to be there to share your day with you, to be the one who does the post processing, and to be the one to let you know that photos are starting to roll out to social media as soon as the day after the event.
And as a husband and as a father, I am growing as a person every day to be the best I can be- and the photos that I take a long the way have only improved as well
