I have been providing professional photography services to the Salt Lake Metropolitan Area since 2006, and recently relocated to the Northern California Region! While spending nearly a decade behind my camera and lens, I've found that I seem to have been drawn to a more inquisitive path in life. One that craves stopping to smell the roses frequently, to examine and experience the beauty in nature, and the people around me. When I succumb to this desire, I find this peacefulness that perpetuates my creative cycle.
During my photography training I came to realize that the world we live in is overflowing with more incredibly rich and visually interesting scenes than I had previously thought. I used to shoot landscapes and wildlife exclusively, but thanks to a wonderful instructor in my first semester for photography, I discovered a love for the studio and all the lighting techniques. But perhaps more importantly, I was introduced to the fulfillment of building unique, and genuine relationships with each of the wonderful people I've photographed.
This feeling of connection has also prompted me to volunteer many days and hours to Help Portrait which has given me yet another special glimpse into these timeless moments. This is a dream that I'll never stop living.
When it comes to creating an amazing image, I believe the key is a collaboratively comfortable environment. The respect and trust a photographer builds with their client is what allows for the collaboration to move forward seamlessly. It's my goal to become adept at encouraging this experience in front of my lens.
