How I Tell a Story

I'm a photographer based in Portland Oregon and I love telling great visual stories about how it feels to be in this place, at this moment, with these people. 

My style and approach is direct, clean, classic, and true.

I specialize in documenting life as-it-happens; no fancy pose required. Unless you really like to pose.  Then go ahead. There's a time and place for that after all. 

I love beautiful, natural light and spend an awful lot of time hunting it down, but I'm not afraid to make my own if it will help tell the story!

Take a look through my portfolio and maybe even my personal work.  If you like what you see, get in touch and lets talk about telling your story. You can send me an email here and you can find me on:  Twitter and Facebook
