      Throughout my 20+ year career, I’ve worked in multiple disciplines of photography all around the world - from working with creative directors to art buyers to shooting ultra-high-end weddings at the top venues throughout places like Monte Carlo, Lake Como, Paris, the South of France, Hong Kong, and NYC. I came to realize that each of these different experiences requires an intimate understanding of how to photograph the human subject.

      Today I’m most passionate about bridging the gap between what I like to call “the two worlds of photography”; the professional world and the consumer world. So regardless of your current skill level or discipline of focus, I look forward to helping you improve your craft, avoid costly mistakes, and cultivate a fulfilling career of your own.
