I am a professional photographer living in the beautiful city of Los Angeles. The light and scenery in California make for a gorgeous photograph. I was born in a suburb of Detroit and this is where I discovered my love for photography. My father noticed my talent as a teenager way before I did and purchased my first camera for me, It was a Disc camera. Not too long after he then upgraded my camera to a professional SLR.
I continued to take pictures for years as a hobby and waiting for my film to be developed was like waiting for Christmas as a child. I still get that feeling even with the digital age, I can’t wait to upload my photos to the computer to see them in a larger format.
I finished high school in Florida where my family moved and still reside. After graduation, I attended film school in Orlando, which had always been a dream of mine. Upon graduating college, I moved immediately to Los Angeles, my biggest dream of all. I worked in the film business on and off, but never being fully satisfied, I attended photography classes at Santa Monica College and continued to take pictures.
I am now working as a professional photographer, taking headshots for actors and working toward a career in editorial and fashion photography. I also love street photography and my vision is to have a coffee table book of my street photography and snapshots, published.
“My photographs are not about the perfect, but the perfect moment.” I love to capture a mood, a candid moment when the subject looks away and gets lost in thought, this is where you find the real emotion of that person. I certainly pose my subject to get what is “expected” from the shoot, but I will always try to capture the real moment and that is what I love about photography.
