I live in Salem, Oregon with my wife Lori and our three daughters. I love living in the Willamette Valley nestled between the mountains and the Pacific coast. I continue to be amazed by the rich culture of delicious craft beverages and local foods that this region produces.
My Photography Journey
My love for photography began when I lived in Santiago de Compostela, Spain in the early 2000s. I would often take long walks through the ancient Roman streets with my Sony Cybershot camera. When I moved to Chicago in 2007 I purchased my first DSLR. There, I was part of a community of photographers who provided professional mentorship and guidance as I learned my away around the camera.
Our family moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2010 and I was blown away by the variety and depth of natural beauty around us. In my free time you can find me at the coast or in the mountains exploring the Oregon wild with a camera in hand.
Marketing with Photography
I use photography as a way to improve marketing for local events and businesses. Quality images are an essential tool that any serious brand needs to help tell its story to market its goods and services. I love to tell the story of a brand through quality photography.
I am available for commercial and event related assignments as well as editorial work. If you are interested in purchasing one of my landscape prints please contact me for more information.
