I came to photography post college, after a 10-year stint as a professional actor. Prior to acting, my whole world was athletics. So much of my photography is informed by these two early passions.
Photography started as a class gifted to me by my wife. I still remember the thrill of capturing my first “real picture.” That excitement remains with me to this day each time I capture an epic image.
Swimming competitively through college was the first thing I really sank my teeth into. Today, I am the happiest when photographing a world-class athlete doing their thing. Capturing an insane angle from the ground or the water. Bringing my unique perspective to their mental or physical grit and their passion for sport.
With my history as an actor, I am able to very quickly connect with a subject; to understand the roadmap to capturing something authentic. To bypass the bullshit.
Big sets are fun, and so are smaller, more intimate shoots. The drive is the same: to deliver exactly what the client asks for, and to surprise them with something unexpected.
