Growing up as the son of a documentary filmmaker has informed the way I approach still photography. As a young boy, I worked with my father and learned to see what was happening around me. At the ripe old age of 10, I picked up my first camera and fell in love.

After earning a degree in computer science, I found myself wanting something more out of life. I started calling all of my favorite photographers to ask for advice. One National Geographic photographer invited me to a documentary photography workshop in Maine. So, I got on a bus and didn’t look back. I was the sole student chosen to have my story appear in a local magazine, leading to my first publication. I soon began to work with many high-profile photographers in the DC area. After honing my skills, it was time to follow my dreams.

For over 15 years now, I have been producing portraiture, headshots, and event photography for advertising agencies, corporate and editorial clients, celebrities, and individuals. Today, my work has been published nationally and internationally. Over the years, I have developed a unique style among DC photographers.  Whether in the controlled confines of a studio or a remote location, I always have the same approach.  I assemble and craft the pieces, but let the subject do the talking. My ultimate goal is to create images that tell my client’s story.

I love my job and will travel anywhere for an interesting photoshoot. So, if you’re looking for a photographer in Washington, DC or anywhere else, don’t hesitate to contact me.
