Thank you for choosing to cover me for one of your short documentaries, Moon!

Are you a hands on learner? Me too!

Some people can spend hours and hours on YouTube to learn how to become a photographer, and that's great! However, I've always been a hands on learner. After a decade of experience, I want to offer new photographers the opportunity to hands on learning as I learned it.

My lessons are geared towards Beginner and Intermediate level creatives.

Photography is just one part of the many pieces that build this vast, creative space. In your journey as a creative you'll find yourself learning the rules just to break them. You'll find yourself learning how to not just read light, but manipulate it to meet your needs. You'll find yourself applying your techniques from one subject matter to another. There are a plethora of avenues to take your creative eye, and you may even find yourself traveling down a path you never considered taking before. The world is yours for the taking, and it all starts with a strong foundation. What I have to teach you will simply serve as one pillar of support for your foundation, and I would be honored to support you.

Advisory and Consultation

So now you've learned how to work your camera, but what comes next?

Let's grab a meal and chat!

Photography Business

When I first started as a freelancer, I had NO idea what I was doing. For so long I feared I was never going to make it. After years of experience, I am happy to lend an ear, share my advice, and help set the first stone in your new path as a professional.

Business to Business

Many photographers are too nervous to tap into the corporate, small business, or boutique marketplaces. Trust me, I get it, but these markets have some of the highest ROIs in both financial and exposure gains. Let's talk about how you can get in on it.

Creative Exploration

Looking for your next project? Maybe you're looking for a second perspective on something you're thinking of? Maybe you're just looking for your next creative adventure? Whatever it may be, I'd be happy to grab a meal with you and explore it with you!
